Day 87 – L’amour

Hey there, My time in Paris has been immensely transforming, and just when I thought I was done having my soul completely reinvigorated by all this city and living here has to offer me, the universe chooses to bless me with more, flood me…

Day 70 – All Things In-between

Hey there, I apologize. There are vast gaps between each of my posts. When it feels like a job rather than pleasure, I am deterred from sitting and doing it. And, truthfully, going through my numerous Japan photos is what deterred me completely. So…

Day 40 – Kissing Hemingway

Hey there, Last night I dreamt I was walking down the Latin Quarter with none other than Hemingway himself! It was a weirdly constructed universe because I was as I am now – same style, same age, same look. Paris looked as though it…

Day 39 – I Can Let Go

Hey there, Luna isn’t improving. In the past week, she’s had numerous episodes with whatever odd condition may be plaguing her. I’m convinced it’s depression at my absence, and that thought really does break my heart. But it’s okay; my flight back is December…

Day 29 – 31: Annecy, France

Hey there, Sorry that I skipped so many days. As life starts to take on a routine, I don’t have much to post about other than my musings but they’ve been pretty quiet the last little while. This weekend I took a trip to…

Day 22 & 23 – Night Walks

Hey there, Something I haven’t done often since being here is night walks around the city. It’s truly the city of lights, but, being a single woman, I also want to feel most safe so I usually head back to the apartment as soon…

Day 20 & 21 – La Vita e Bella

Hey there, I got a substitute position with the International School of Paris. I’m doing a “trial run” of a philosophy lesson for another International school on Monday. I was contacted by my favourite expat magazine to provide them with article ideas. A friend…

Day 19 – Let’s Get Lost

Hey there,   Today I let myself get lost in my neighbourhood and, as usual, discovered corners of it I never experienced in my last 18 days, here. There is always something new. There is always some beauty hidden if you take a moment…

Day 17 & 18 – Silent Film

Hey there, Not much to share: – I had a phone interview for a philosophy teacher position, and I have an in-person interview/meeting on Thursday – I traversed through the Passages of Paris, today: these are 19th century covered passages that were once main…

Day 15 & 16 – Passions & Versailles

Hi there, I cannot believe I’ve lived in Paris for 16 days. I also cannot believe my request for a bank account only got approved yesterday (IT TOOK FIFTEEN DAMN DAYS). Moving onwards… I wrote this last night but I genuinely have no recollection…

Day 13 & 14 – Ode to Artists

Hey there, Day 13 was nothing worth posting about but day 14 has been W[A]NDERful. I had a day off and wandered Paris. It’s as good as you can imagine. Wandering lead me to familiar places and to find some new discoveries. The great…

Day 12 – My Own Terms

Hey there, I don’t have immense excitement to share with you today. It was a day of errands and wandering, but that’s part of everyday life in Paris, and, having made a goal for myself to write every day, here we are. Today begins…
