AHHHH! why is this blog so confusing for me! i don't know how to write on it, but maybe this will show up. I don't really like the idea of blogging (which is why i'm so late in writing something) because I feel like most the stuff i'd blog about is personal; but i guess it's a way to remember things and remember this year.
One idea that i'll contribute to JYA Smithies: i think it really is good to make french friends. Just from hanging out with the few friends i have a Diderot, if i go to a party or a cafe and even just listen to them (although talking is good too) i can tell my french has improved. And because it helps your understanding of french culture, it just makes it easier to live in Paris.
