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!

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/13/01


Our 2 yrs, 11 months anniversary!  I forgot to say that when I talked to him earlier.  :(  I'm really upset about money issues.  I don't know how I'm going to do all the traveling I want to and still pay rent and eat.  (sigh)  I wrote a letter to Jamie tonight, but I still have a lot of others to write!  Hopefully I'll do some of that tomorrow along with thinking of what to teach and making bunches of pbj's and fluffernutters for my classes.  I need to go to bed soon... I finished the last book of the three dad sent - just to find out that there's a fourth!  I'll have to ask him about it when I call tomorrow.  Bedtime.  G'night Jamie.  I love you!

Clermont-Ferrand, France - 1/12/01


Our supplementary lit class was almost an hour and a half long.  Yuck.  And I didn't get any mail today - pretty disappointing.  I really need to start my letter writing again.  I have... (well, I just went through and took the time to address some envelopes, but I forgot to count - so)... some/lots of letters to write.  I finished the second book of that series tonight, and started the third.  My writing/thinking skills go downhill as I get more and more tired.  Sarah and I had our x-ray and doctor appointments today.  X-ray was quick - strip from the waist up and press yourself against a COLD metal thing, take a deep breath, and you're done.  We waited about 45 minutes before getting in to see the doctor.  He asked "height, weight, wear glasses, any problems" and we were done.  I love you, Jamie sweetheart!  G'night.
