In other news, the semester is picking up! I have my first assignment due this Thursday, and after that a steady stream of essays to write; none of them are looking to be incredibly incredibly difficult though, just tedious.
My friend Colleen is visiting the first weekend in March, the next weekend my Best Friend's boyfriend (who is also one of my good friends) is coming to visit for 2 weeks, the following weekend my little sister (in Alpha Phi), Emily, is coming to visit for a weekend, and the weekend after that I am going to Prague to visit some Tufts friends with Best Friend and her boyfriend. April 8-15th I'll be in Italy with Best Friend and two other new friends I made while here, the 17th-21st I'll be in Ireland with my Mom, and then the 21st/22nd my actual little sister will be in Paris and I'm SUPER excited about that, cause she's going to get to come have dinner with me and my host fam.
Oh and I'm seeing a Taylor Swift concert in March, which I am also vair vair excited about, cause I've been listening to her new album a lot and it's fantastic.
Here are some recent photos:

the French have never really been into the whole politically-correct thing.

|So much meat, but not a grill to be seen...|
|"Si tu vois un Eskimo, tu finis en beauté, si tu vois un Indien d'Amerique, c'est raté" ...A translation wouldn't do it justice, but suffice to say it's another example of the French not caring about being offensive/politically correct.|
