My dear readers,
I apologize for some incorrect information in the previous blog due to my lack of time to write and quick writing pace.
The internship hours, instead of "Monday and half of Friday" include Wednesday, too.
Also, Daniela spells her name with one 'L'
Last night, I worked on my presentation for Business French. The article I chose to discuss was Sarkozy's tv spiel on the 10th, which 8 million French viewers watched. He spoke about an additional 500 million euros that he would like in order to help young people and those who have been unemployed for a long time. The money would come from other Ministry departments. I'm sure those departments will not be happy. Presentation went well.
After finishing it, I went to the movies with Emi to see Au-Dela (Hereafter) with Matt Damon. I was surprised to find out that the movie is actually half in English, half in French with French subtitles during the English parts. It was good, but sad. And I didn't like the end, because it didn't make sense to me. It seemed random. Like Hollywood just couldn't hold itself back from making the two main characters, who have barely met, fall in love at first sight. Ewww :-)
Then, I randomly met a young French guy by my apartment. I decided to make friends with him - nothing to lose! And I'm well protected by my shomer negiah (no touching) status, about which I made sure to inform him. He said that it is 'interesting' and definitely diffrent. Tu parles...of course it's different; it's the opposite of French people haha! If he calls me, maybe I'll invite him to come out with me and my friends tonight for Daniela's birthday (which is actually on Friday, but she's starting early because we go on break that day).
Speaking of which, I just called Chabad of Nice to faire le point (get on the same page) about whether I can sleep over or not. I wish I had called them earlier, because they said that there is no place. Now I either have to scramble (just called Freida to see if her family knows anyone) or try to walk to Chabad from the hotel that is probably not Shabbos friendly. Hoping for the best!
Also, I went to choose my professional photos yesterday, too. Gosh are they gorgeous! It was so hard to choose. I limited myself to 5 and paid 70 euro for them!! Expensive, but once-in-a-lifetime :-)
Lunch with Henry and Caroline today. Time to work on finance presentation (I scheduled all my presentations before the break haha)
