Listening to the waves crash along the shore, surrounded by beauty on the beach at St. Tropez, all I can do is think of is how lucky I am and how thankful I am to have this amazing opportunity to study in France!Each day is like living in a dream, not in the sense that it is unbelievable or that nothing bad ever happens but in the sense that everything is magical. Even the days on which I get up at 7am for class at 8:30. Getting up isn’t magical but once I hit the bottom of the hill and see the edge of the city, alive with people off to work, little kids on their way to school, bakers making fresh baguettes, and venders setting up for the market, I can’t help but SMILE! I forget how early it is and all I can think about is how wonderful this experience is!
So THANK YOU to everyone who convinced me to go, told me I could do it, shared their fantastic stories with me, wished me well, and a special THANK YOU to my PARENTS for sending me to France!
