I'm really missing Jamie. I keep thinking about when he finally gets here and how wonderful it's going to be!! I want to call him but I shouldn't.
I talked to the secretary about changing levels and she said it's the directrice's decision, but she'll talk to her about it. argh. I don't see how they could force me to be in 4, so I don't understand what she has to decide. I hope she let's me be in 3 tomorrow or Friday - I don't want to have to do that presentation Friday! I talked to Mom about it and she said they wouldn't be disappointed if I change. It's frustrating thinking I have to stay in this level until a decision is reached - I'm missing all the revision & work in level 3 while I'm stuck in 4!
We visited the Michelin museum today instead of having class in the afternoon. It was kinda dull, but now I know how tires are made. And I learned that Bibendum (the Michelin mascot's name) comes from the Latin for "It's time to drink." So Sarah and I have made it our new toast - "Bibendum!"
We stopped at the grocery store (a bigger one than the little épicerie with all the fruit) on the way home & found good stuff. Apple juice, chocolate, some school supplies... Tomorrow we're going to get photos taken & get our bus passes! Finally. We also need to talk to someone about teaching English in high schools, pay rent, buy Sarah's 12-25 card, go back to Auchan (blowdryer!), and I need to buy stamps and a good backpack. I owe Sarah two stamps... We talked more about our Paris trip (looks like we have a full week between Sept. & Oct.!) and I'm really looking forward to it! Oh yeah - we also need to enroll & do our carte de séjour stuff. I talked to mom last night and she said it cost her $15 to send me a small package with shave gel, deoderant, etc. I'm going to see if Jamie can find & send me a cheap Beatles CD (Greatest Hits-type). Sarah, Aimee, and I are planning on shopping at a thrift store, buying English books at Les Volcans, & picnicking in the park next weekend. And I think we might go to a movie sometime. (English w/ French subtitles.) I'm going to write another letter now. Goodnight, Jamie - I love you and I miss you.
