Also rather unexpected and pleasant news- I'm off to Aix-en-Provence for the weekend to meet up with G, K and A. I didn't think it would work out with me being sick lately and being so far from Aix but a teacher friend of mine is heading down for the weekend to montpellier so I'm hitching a ride to get to the train station there which will take me to marseille. I can't wait to hang out with my old friends where my true passion for all things french started. I'm just hoping there will be no purple projectile this time. ;) haha.
I'm up to running 5k now a day. I hate running because it's so boring but I love the feel of the high I get afterwards. I feel like I can accomplish anything and I have more energy afterwards. I'm hoping to get to 6k before christmas break but that might be a stretch on the 30 min time limit.
The H1N1 flu is going around but not in St. Chely thank goodness. Everyone keeps talking about it here and there is a huge debate on whether to get the vaccination or not. I never thought that this was such a big deal and I still think people here are making a mountain out of a mole hill. Strepp is going around though here in the internat (boarding school). I live right next door and most of them are my students so I'm trying to load up on Vit. C. This weekend in Aix will be a good break away from all the sickness of early winter.
Well until the next time...
