Life Update Part 3: Delphine et la France

Dear fellow Babblers,

One last post to conclude my Life Update series on relocating to France.
If any of you have read the two earlier posts, you’ll well be aware that I am no longer living in the states and I am writing these posts as a way of somehow connecting with the world as well as reflecting on my initial impressions and thoughts of my new home here in Joigny, on the outskirts of Paris. These posts are written as I wait to be finally connected to the wifi. I haven’t had internet connection here for the past three weeks, and being a blogger and a gal trying to fill out grad school applications just let me tell ya that it’s pretty killer. However, this post is the first written in which I have Wifi so you can only imagine my relief and utter gratitude for the bimbo technician that finally came along to connect the bastard.

Anyway. This post is going to be devoted to my new work as an assistant English teacher at the local high school, where I am also currently living, and some new discoveries I have been making of myself as I begin to perceive the world around me under a different sunlight and moonlight.

Life Update Part 2: Delphine et la France

Dear fellow Babblers,

Welcome back to my “Life Update” series. These posts are basically just a detour back into my last few weeks and how my life has drastically changed, having moved from sunny California to nippy Joigny.

The first post of this series was really just a deep and personal reflection of my first impressions of France and in what ways my life, in terms of my overall mentality, has changed and what it has done to my perceptions of life and the world around me. In this second post I will get into some of the places and many adventures that I have had since arriving. Of course I will not be able to include everything, but I thought it would be rather fun to bring y’all into my life outside of my blog and book-reviewing. Also… Another reason for these posts? I haven’t picked up to read a single book since I got here… YIKES. That probably wouldn’t be such a big deal if my blog wasn’t umm… well… a BOOK BLOG!!!  Continue reading “Life Update Part 2: Delphine et la France”

Life Update Part 1: Delphine et la France

Dear fellow Babblers,

Good evening from France! So, obviously, I haven’t been all that active on wordpress and really any of my social media except for Instagram for the past three weeks. Moving from Los Angeles to the Burgundy region of France has been an extremely huge life change and although I told myself hundreds of times that I would remain committed to my blog…well, we all know how that ended up.

So much has been going on in the past three weeks that it would be a bit too ambitious of me to sit and recount to y’all every single little detail of my move. As a result, I thought I would just go ahead and babble along for a while and let you guys in on my new French countryside life.  Continue reading “Life Update Part 1: Delphine et la France”
