La Vie à Paris
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about Paris, and namely about how I’m not ready to leave. The completion of my thesis means a new chapter is about to begin, but what and where it’s all about, I’m not so sure yet. My days lately are spent translating my CV into French, which is an interesting exercise in itself on my quest to express what it is exactly that I do in any language. Ironically I’m able to be far more concise in my French version than in my English one (the fatigue of translation has it’s benefits). But each day instead of stressing about my future, finding a job and the papers to stay, I’m trying to savor the little things and enjoying the company of my wonderful friends (iPhone pictures from Catherine‘s birthday celebration yesterday). Spring has arrived in full-force this week (will it last is another question) and it feels like a new page is beginning. But even when it’s not sunny and warm out, it is the most mundane moments of Paris life that I love the most, and was reminded of in this video that Kristina sent me.
