I couldn’t resist the pun.
Last Saturday (March 10th) was the 8 week mark for my trip, which means the semester is halfway done and I can’t believe it. But more on that at the end of the post!
One of my friends here discovered that there’s a store that rents out rollerblades, so last Friday a group of us rented pairs for only 8 euros!
Okay, so I guess it’s technically not a snow day since it was on Sunday, but it was a day full of snow!
When I officially committed to coming to Nice to study, I made a list of things that I knew I had to do during the semester. One of these things was to go snowboarding in the French alps.
When I was in high school I hated doing things alone. Going to the movies? Going to the mall? Going to the grocery store? It could have been the most insignificant task but I wanted a friend to go with me, because for some reason I was afraid people would judge me if I was alone, as if anyone was actually paying attention. I started to grow out of it in my final months of high school, but it wasn’t until my first year at UMD that I really discovered the joy of doing things on my own.
This past Wednesday I had the day off from classes and decided I needed a day to myself, so I took a day trip to Èze, a small village just east of Nice. It takes around 20-25 minutes to get there if you take the bus.
