St. Chapelle, Notre Dame and Sacre Cœur today. Also found a vegan cookbook with french recipes :).
Second day in Paris and the highlight was definitely the Père Lachaise cemetery. Saw the tombs of composers and others (including Abelard and Heloise).
Been practicing my french by ordering food and talking to a nice lady at the cemetery.
Anybody remember this place? Brandt Lake, Greensboro. I used to come here all the time and this was where I ran my marathon.
I’m in town visiting friends at school before I leave, but it’s a little weird being back some place that I love and know so well (and knowing that I won’t be able to stay). Ran about 3 miles here, was a little drizzly, but still lovely (and cooler than it’s been in a while).
Sunset last night from the beach. Today is my last day at work!
Over the summer my love for this place, this beach, has just increased so much and even though I’m leaving, Fort Fisher was a place I grew up with and will stay in my heart as one of my favorite beautiful relaxing places. I’ve also learned that there is a lot of trash in the world (some days I felt like I picked it ALL up) and I’m going to work towards creating less waste in my life.
Stay tuned as more exciting things are about to be happening…4 days until I leave the country to go study abroad in France!
Haircut before and after. No more ponytails for me!
After running 6.5 miles last night, I made rice pudding for dessert and breakfast today. Also check them out at theveganstoner.com.
For those of you who are worried, I have not officially started packing. But I’m nowhere near being ready to leave yet.
my cats woke me up at 2 AM this morning and I’m really tired and don’t want to go to work. Ugh.
19 days until I leave the country and I still haven’t started packing yet.
I’ve been absent…
So it’s been awhile since I actually posted anything about what was going on in my life…so here’s a long list of things that have happened since then.
continued to work 40 hours at the beach
got my long stay visa for studying abroad in France
perfected my farmers tan
got back into a good running schedule (I haven’t been on one since February)
read a lot of books
got some new composition software that was really expensive but is really freaking cool and I love messing around with it
made my own vegan veggie burgers (sweet potato, black eye pea and spinach) without a recipe
burnt myself making said veggie burgers
ignored my own advice and ran two miles barefoot out of the blue even though I knew my feet weren’t calloused enough
oh my goodness I’ve started packing for France….so close…
Germany won! (these are not in order) Woo!
trying to convince my parents that a mohawk would be a really cool haircut
went to the farmers market all by myself, got baby eggplants and roasted them (on a weekend when I had the house to myself), felt grown-up
i think that’s all…if you want more detail about any of these things…message me and I’ll do a whole blog post. :)
