Where I stayed
Chez Odile Cheminade
I keep feeling like a mouse of sorts. It has recently become a habit of mine to go and sneak some cheese along with a drink from my madam's fridge for a midnight snack. I’m sure even if she knew she wouldn’t mind, but I’m not going to wake her up to ask her. Plus its safer to just avoid asking in the first place. Regardless I feel like a mouse at the moment.
Today was a particularly low day out of any low day I’ve had in Europe. It was our first day of classes for the second semester. Not our actual classes but a special intensive refresher course hastily thrown together by Guy Allain our program director, who believes it necessary before our actual classes start. The result was the most boring and useless day of class ever. 2 hours of some professor blithering about the differences between the French and American university systems
I must admit that at least part of my frustration and resulting grumpiness about this is likely due to a lack of sleep. For some reason I was unable to fall asleep last night and then inexplicably awoke at 6:00am. Those of you who know me know that I am not a morning person and never wake up voluntarily before 11:00 if I can avoid it. With all luck I will be able to fall asleep in a timely manner and stay asleep for an appropriate period of time.
I’m attaching a picture of my notes. This was the most productive thing I accomplished during class today. Enjoy.
