Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/20/01


Talked to Jamie tonight; I'm really missing him.  Babysat for the Johnstons.  Alec hadn't had his nap today so he went to bed at 8:30 - easy night.  Tomorrow is church and studying for the civ and writing tests.  And I get to talk to Mom & Dad.  :)  G'night Jamie.  I love you.

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/19/01


Today is dad's birthday!  :)  The litt test was today, and it didn't go very well.  I know a lot of information for that class, but she didn't ask about anything I knew.  It's done, though.  I found out today that I should have about $2400 leftover from my scholarship this semester.  That pushes me to $900 a month instead of $500!!  I'm still going to be careful, though.  I need money for an apartment next year!  Today, though, to celebrate the end of the horrible litt class and test, I bought a cheap pair of pants and a cheap shirt and saw Castaway.  (In French; good movie!)  And tomorrow I get to talk to Jamie!!!  I was just realizing a second ago that I get to be with him for the rest of my life.  He makes me so incredibly happy!  {This goes on for a while.}

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/18/01


We stayed at the Cafe St. Laurent for 9 1/2 hours today, studying.  Litt test is tomorrow morning!  We're arriving 2 hours early to study more.  (sigh)  Decided not to get an apartment here - we need the storage room during the month of June.  Talked to Jamie for a little bit.  :)  He's wonderful.  :)  Bedtime!  I love you, sweetheart!  BTW - the oral test went fine.

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/17/01


I had a lot to think about today.  Now, especially after talking to mom, I know what I want to do.  I'm going to keep my major in International Relations and keep my French as a minor instead of a major.  So:  I have 9 classes left to take to graduate.  I don't know if my scholarship will apply to the first year of grad school or not.  In any case, I'm going to enroll in classes (next semester) that I need to graduate.  When it's time to enroll for next spring, Jamie and I can decide if it would be better for me to go ahead and finish or to take another year after that.  I've also decided (w/ mom's help) not to apply for the scholarship.  I would only have a week to do it in, and that week includes 6 finals.  Too much stress.  I'm just happy that Prof. Cox nominated me!  Also, watched the Orange Bowl tonight, decided w/ Morgan & Sarah to look for a cheap studio (for 3) and found out that Mom's cookies are already in the mail for me!  I love you, Jamie!

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/16/01


I got to talk to him for a long time tonight.  :)  I had a fairly productive day - I bought stamps, envelopes, writing paper, and a highlighter, and did all my laundry (besides hand-washed stuff).  Morgan and I ordered two big lemon meringue tarts from the patisserie - we're going to eat them (with everyone else) tomorrow night while we watch the Orange Bowl at the SUEE.  Tomorrow during the day we're going to study litt. at a cafe... (sigh)  I can't see how I'm going to pass that test, so I can't motivate myself to study.  Vicious circle.  It's past my bedtime.  :)  G'night my wonderful, wonderful man!  I love you!

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/15/01


Mary and Sean are engaged!  And building a house in Texas - and she bought a new car.  I'm very happy for them, but I'm jealous of their financial situation.  Jamie and I are going to be poor - in debt - for a long time.  At least we know that now - we're already preparing.  :)  I had an email saying that Robert Cox (prof at OU) has nominated me for a scholarship!  I need to check out the website tomorrow to print off the application.  Had a run-in w/ Martine today over my missing the next two weeks, but it's over and I'm not going to worry about it anymore.  I wish I could talk to Jamie... only one more day!  I love you, sweetheart!

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/14/01


Talked to Dad & Mom tonight.  :)  I love my parents!  Mom said she'll send me some cookies and her gingersnap recipe.  :)  Dad now knows that Jamie and I had my finger sized for a ring and that we're wanting to get married probably the spring after I get back.  Dad, especially, helped me a lot with figuring out the money situation.  I'm going to cut back my February vacation and go see Matt & Nat.  Now it's Amsterdam, possibly Brussels, possibly a castle in Germany, and then Matt & Nat's.  I'll do Mont St Michel on a long weekend some time.   I have to be up in less than 3 hours for teaching; don't know what I'm doing for that.  (sigh)  G'night Jamie.  I love you with all my heart!
