On Saturday I will have officially lived in Paris for a month! This month has come with a whirlwind of emotions. I went from being extremely homesick to never wanting to leave Paris to being extremely jealous of everyone tailgating at the Georgia games back to being content with where I am.
The first few days of being here in Paris were very difficult for me; I was adjusting to a new culture and I was living on my own for the first time. I would call home and tell my parents I know I am not doing the right thing by moving here, but after settling in and finding new friends and places to go I feel that my decision of moving to Paris is probably the best one I have ever made. I know that I will keep in touch with my friends and family (and hopefully they will visit). I feel that over this year I will be able to not only learn about the world from a different perspective, but also learn a lot about myself.
Just within the 4 short weeks of being here I have already experienced so many aspects of the Parisian culture. From dining to going out to shopping and my favorite just sitting and enjoying the Parisian way of life I have learned a lot about this culture and myself. This city really is a magical place and I will update soon on my upcoming adventures!
