Out of everything I've learned here, I think that there are two things that are the most important to me:

 1) be brave, be strong 
2) don't take things too seriously

Was that three?

Ma Chambre

I thought that some of you (namely, Mimi) might want to see where I live, exactly. I took a few pictures of parts of the walls in my tiny, tiny room. Basically, I put up any free brochure I can get my hands on. It's worked out fairly well, and very colorfully. 

Also, if you've ever sent me a card, chances are it is hanging in my room. Thank you :)

Tulips Galore

Tulips are my third favorite thing in the world. Behind chocolate and books and followed closely by bread and wine. So when we went to the Keukenhof festival in Holland, I was overjoyed. 

These are called honeymoon tulips, aren't they so cool?

Sorry for posting only flowers lately, but it's been a long, long winter.

In case you missed the memo, it's April. Which for those of us in Paris means pure, unsolicited joy. There are babies, flowers, and sunlight all over the city. It's enchanting. I bought myself a mini rose plant, I've been running more than ever and I even skipped class today to enjoy the beauty.

The following were taken on a monday morning stroll through the Jardin des Plantes, in which there are finally some living plants.
