la joie de vivre

From California to Lyon, France: living & studying abroad…and coming back!

Balancing the Ego

Learning a foreign language is a roller coaster:


Sometimes you feel like you're on the top of the world...

Po and Shifu

and other times you feel like you've gotten kicked in the butt!


And sometimes you feel like this...


when you want to be feeling like this

I got all my grades back for the semester, and they turned out great! …and then I got put into a lower-middle French level class after a placement test, which after being here a semester and taking all my classes in French, definitely is a blow to my ego :P

But life moves on :) And we’ll have to see how this class is along with the 12 other classes I will be attending next week!
