It's Only a Matter of Time

My appologies for the length of time since my last post.  But life has been pretty quiet and uneventful since I started classes again.  In fact, starting over this semester was significantly easier than when I started last September.  Maybe it's that I already knew what to expect, was already settled in, and already knew some language . . . but regardless, starting school this fall was a breeze.

I decided to stick around an extra few months to improve my speaking/listening skills and to learn some Occupational Therapy specific vocabulary.  Since starting back up in Massy, I've been emailing a contact I made last spring, along with an OT department at a University in Paris in order to spend some hours each week learning terminology.

La Rentrée

That's right.  It's back-to-school time!  Or as we say here in France, la rentrée.

I'm not sure if I can express in words how absolutely FABULOUS it is to not be a débutante this September!  I go to class and I can not only understand what my prof is saying, but I can respond . . . in complete sentences (Hey now!!  I said complete, not grammatically correct!!).
