In Paris!

So, probably the best thing to do at this point is to IGNORE COMPLETELY the previous few posts made on this blog.  I am not deleting them, but really they are more relevant to what was going on a year ago in my life.

This is the current state of affairs in Bekopia (since a year ago):
  • Graduated James Madison University with a Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs and Political Science
  • Four days after graduation, I flew to Paris to meet my boyfriend (Loïc, we've been together for seven months)
  • Travelled to Munich to work as an Au Pair (this sucked, and warrants a seperate post altogether)
  •  Moving to Vienna in early August to start another Au Pair opportunity, fingers crossed that this won't completely suck

So what you should ultimately draw from this post is that I am CURRENTLY LIVING IN PARIS!!  Basically this is the young American girl's dream.  I have a wonderful French boyfriend and the only thing keeping us from complete bliss is the unbearable heat.  As I type this, my feet are immersed in a green basin full of water, in the hopes that it cools me down in this apartment without air conditioning.  Seriously, I don't know how Europeans deal with it.  We should be getting a fan this week, inshallah.

So right now, my goal for this blog is merely upkeep.  I want to keep posting, I really do.  Ideas for posts include observations about the French, German and Austrian cultures, and, as before, articles that I deem interesting.

Au Revoir,
