It's actually 3:24am on the 16th, but I'm writing about the 15th, so that'll be the date. Today was a good day. Class sucked, as usual, but I got an email from Jamie at lunch. I took two headache drugs in the afternoon and was completely out of it for the last 30-45 minutes. After class, Sarah and I set up our bank accounts (Credit Agricole) & bought pastries, bread, cheese, & fruit for our dinner. I got a letter from Jamie and one from Mom when I got back. Mom's had my credit card bill, OU statement (I have about $2300 left over!) [extra money from scholarships], last check from Avis (stub), Pepe's episodes 5-6 (hilarious!) [Pepe wrote down some of his childhood memories for us], and an email from Lorenzo. Christina, Sarah, and I went to Place de Jaude at 8:30 to see a Brazilian band & dance troupe and some fireworks to celebrate the Centre Jaude's 20th birthday. Afterwards, we went with Zack to a bar and met a bunch of people, including Keeran, Nile, & Morris (all Irish), Chris (English), and Katrine & Christiana (German). I love the Irish accents! Sarah and I spent the whole time watching Zack hit on two French girls (Elodie & Celine - especially Celine) and listening to the band play. The band was pretty good. The bar included part of a huge outdoor place with a bunch of tables. We sat on some steps outside. Zack & Keeran walked the three of us back to Place de Jaude to catch our taxi & Keeran said he recommends visiting Ireland - especially Galway. My eyes are closing. I love you, Jamie!
