So I know my blog post for this is a little late but to be honest I had started it before and am only just now getting around to posting it.
I know I mentioned that I was studying abroad in Paris this month and I didn’t think it would get in the way of my work for this class, and it hadn’t up until last week.
This is what happened last week…
My roommate and I just had sooo many bug bites, at first I just thought that these were mosquito bites but then they started to SWELL and get BIGGER! And sooo itchy. Then my roommate started to get them as well and we discovered we had bed bugs! Paris isn’t all that clean, we all know that, but bed bugs really?! I know bed bugs can appear even in a very clean home/place but we are living in a dorm where people are coming and going all the time, you would think that they would protect against this.
So we had to first get the people that run the dorms to believe that we actually had bed bugs, which required a angry phone call from the leader of our program here in France, and then we had to move. But before we moved, we had to CLEAN ALL of our things! This took forever! And who knew that the middle of the week was a popular time to do laundry in Paris? We ended up staying up until 2AM washing all of our things, which sucked even more for me because I had just done laundry and now had to pay for it again.
Then we had to do paperwork and actually move to the new room. But guess what? There was only one shower in this new building and it was clogged, so now we had to go outside and travel to another building to just take a shower! Oh Paris…..this made me want to beg for my own home in the states.
But now I am working on catching up with my blog posts as well as my homework for my class here, because of course we weren’t able to move our computers first and we also didn’t have internet in our room for the first couple of days.
It’s hard to remember what I actually did for this class as so much was going on at the time but I do know that I learned how to make movies from clips on my computer using software I already had! That was fun, though it was also the most complicated to learn and complete so I can’t be sure if I will do it again any time soon.
I hope you guys enjoy my work!
