Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/24/01


Have to wake up in 3 hours... just finished packing.  We're flying to Barcelona!  Same price as the train and a lot faster.  Think my compte-rendu went well... talked to Mom for a couple minutes - Aunt Natalie had her baby but don't know yet if it's boy or girl... have to go to bed.  I love you, Jamie!!!

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/23/01


If I wasn't so tired, I'd write about the weirdest book in the world that I just finished, and my otherwise pretty wonderful day.  I love you, Jamie!

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/22/01


Talked to Matt & Nat tonight.  I'm going to visit Nat for Valentine's Day, so we can have a pity party.  :)  Anniversaries and Valentine's Day and neither of us will have a significant other there.  Hopefully we can find some good sappy movies to watch!  It's almost 11:30 and I still haven't studied for grammar.  I did write two letters, though, and that's an accomplishment.  Too bad I'm not graded on letters instead of finals.  Tomorrow is the grammar final and then Wednesday is the compte-rendu.  (sigh)  I still have to finish re-reading Zazie.  I bought two "Petit Nicolas" books today and already read the first couple chapters of one.  They're easy to read!  And cute and funny.  :)  I dropped off film today to get copies of stuff for Jamie... I wish finals were over!  And I wish I didn't have to move on to level 5 next semester.  I'd rather take something easy and not risk failing since I'm not getting credit anyway!  (sigh)  I love you, Jamie!  G'night!

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/21/01


Well, tomorrow is civ and writing and I'm far from ready.  Probably because I don't know what'll be on the civ test, and I have no way to prepare for writing.  :(  (sigh)  Church was tonight... I like going, but I miss the more contemporary service, and singing songs that aren't hymns.  I like the pastor, Joe, though.  Shonda, Morgan, Sarah, and I ate at Pizza Tino's tonight.  I split a pizza w/ Sarah so it was really cheap.  Talked to Mom.   Nothing new at home.  She said Dad will probably take tomorrow off of work, but he's doing fine after his surgery.  I miss Jamie.  Yesterday, he had just made brownies when I talked to him.  I wish I could be chez-lui eating brownies and drinking milk and hugging him... I'm just kind of depressed right now about the whole school thing and Jamie always makes me feel better.  The brownies would help, too.  :)

I hate knowing that I don't need any of the credit I'm getting for being here, yet I still have to take classes (probably level 5) to be able to keep my scholarship.  It would be fine if I could take an easy level, but taking level 5 means I risk failing a class- and I can't afford to do that.  I'm also worrying right now about planning the Spain and Portugal trip (we leave Thursday and have no plans), planning the February trip (still need to call Matt & Nat), planning the April trip, and planning the June trip.  And when I get back, I need to find a job, buy a car, and move into a new apartment (that I also need to find).  And of course, finals, new semester, and enrolling for fall are all here now.  

I guess just take one thing at a time.  God won't give me more than I can handle, right?  G'night Jamie, love of my life.  I hope you're enjoying your brownies.  :)  I love you!

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.
