1. I've missed french bread with my meals. I love sopping up the juices from my plate after I'm done eating, it's my favorite part.
2. The school installed a door handle to the massive green door at the bottom entrance to my apartment building. This all sounds silly I know, but before I had to reach around the little gap between the cement wall and the door to release the door. Now I can open it, like a normal person!
3. Speaking french. I missed it so and coming back wasn't nearly as hard as coming back from christmas vacation. I easily slipped back into talking with people. I'm sure I've lost a little progress (Mme H insists I did) but not nearly to the extent before.
4.) Seeing my friends at the gym. I talked with S tonight forever! We had so much to catch up on. I also saw C, St, E and so many more.
5.) Feeling at ease, however much I love being with Oli, in Toronto I feel this restlessness that eats away at me and by the time Oli gets home I'm crabby as hell. I think that despite my loneliness here I am even more lonely there. At least I have daytime interactions and work to do here. In Toronto its boredom that gets me. I'll need a job or something to help or else I'm not sure that we'll stay so long in canada if I'm so unhappy.
6.) French esspresso. The nesspresso machine me manque! I love it and it's not the same in the states for some reason.
In any case, it feels great to be back. I also miss calculated my time here. I have two months left but only 6 of teaching including this one. I have 5 before break and 1 more after. I really was hoping to visit Henry and G during break but because of the delta mishap I'm out 100 euros that I was hoping to use toward a weekend away there. I'm going to save like a fiend to make this work out.
