Didn’t know how to call it—- Anyway. It’s the end. I’m gone. Fini. I left on Sunday… It was SO weird. I can’t get used to the idea that I won’t come back to Tréguier, that tiny but cute town in Bretagne (cheesssssyyyy). I didn’t even cry because I felt I was leaving for the holidays and that’s all. Anyway… I’ll resume my exchange year as one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I met AMAZING people from all over the world and I really don’t want to stop talking to them! I tried thing I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to try in my country, I changed my way of thinking about different things and I learned a lotttttt. I have no regrets. I’m happy I lived this and even if I really want to come back to see everyone (I’m not back yet, I’m passing my holidays here) I don’t want to leave either. I feel “divided” in two parts. I have like two lives. I don’t want to forget the life I built in France and I’m hopefully coming back soon! I recommend this to people. It’s an experience that changes your life, even if you realize it at the end. It’s not the end, I’ll come back.

I haven’t really realized I leave in exactly 2 weeks… TWO WEEKS. 15 days… I hate the idea of leaving my friends… I’ll probably never see them again, so … it feels weird haha. I’m really excited about going home, though! Seeing my friends again, my family, my school, my country :) I’ll do a little summary of my year the 16th :) or the 17th (the day I leave) I’ll travel for a month around Europe so I won’t be able to write a lot during that month! My friend’s are doing a farewell party on friday 15th :) I’m really excited haha and kinda sad. I lost 1 pound, btw :) Which means I’ve lost 9 pounds! I still have a lot of things to do, and next week is my last week at school soooo…. I’ll enjoy my last days here! :)
Now that I have time to write… I’ll resume this month I’ve spent in France.
Paris was absolutely amazing. As soon as I got there I said: this is where I’m going to live. I just know. I love it. I also met some amazing people from all over the world!
My host family is also really nice. The house is beautiful, the town and everything’s been really nice. My first day at school was the scariest thing ever, but it went really well and now I have friends and all. I guess I’m lucky, I understand almost everything when the teachers talk and the people I met help me all the time and they’re REALLY NICE! It’s been really cool.
Things I like:
- THE FOOD IS AMAZING…. Though I’ll get fat. (No, WON’T HAPPEN. CAN’T HAPPEN). - The host family. - The school. - Paris. - People in general.
One thing I don’t like: I left EVERYTHING in Colombia. I’m very fond of fashion, you know, and now I can’t dress because all my clothes are in my country and I just cant go and buy everything I want. Another thing I don’t like: I’m the knid of person who doesn’t shut up, but in french is so difficult to express myself. I have this NECESITY to talk, but can’t haha. It’s horrible. Mas ça arrivera, ça arrivera.
That’s a sumery of this first month. I don’t talk to much becuase I don’t have enough vocabulary, but next month I’m sure I’ll improve! Ça arrivera.
Nooo way… I leave in threeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee days!! I can’t realize it yet. I already packed half of my stuff and I don’t know if I’ll have enough space… damn. Tomorrow I’ll go to a party to say good bye to everyone!! It’s gonig to be so weird. Every time I say goodbye to someone I won’t see anymore, I feel like I’m seeing them the very next day.
I have a lot of feelings right now: I’m stressed because I have a lot of things to do, but I’m soooo relaxed because I don’t do anything hahahahaha. I’m really happy about going home because I miss everything and everyone, but at the same time I don’t want to leave my friends here! I’m actually “divided” in two parts, one here and one home. Guess I’ll enjoy what is lefttt!!
So… It’s been 9 months or something since the day I step foot here…. C’est dingue!! I can’t believe it! Time goes by really fast! I think at this point of the exchange I only think about going back… that’s the only thing in my head… and losing some pounds too! lol! I miss my family, friends and country so much! I try not to think a lot about it because I want to enjoy this last month too, but it’s really hard! I’ve been having a lot of ups and downs and sometimes I’m kind of a bitch with everyone haha but I always realize it before doing something I know I’ll regret later! I’m a bit stressed because I need to do my Colombian work (30 pages) and I haven’t started yet! It’s really hard for me to start because I have a lot of distractions and I feel I don’t have all the elements to do it! But I need to focus on it! I HAVE TO DO IT!!!! Motivation! I’ll start running 30 minutes 5 times a week and I’ll stop eating like a fat girl! I can’t stand seeing my fat face on the mirror! I’ll try to go to the pool 3 times a week too for an hour min! MOTIVATION! MOTIVATION!
What else?? Mmmm… I’m probably going to Paris next weekend! I really hope it works out! If not, I’ll go to a friend’s party! :) Both things are ok, but Paris is of course the one I want the most! Wish me luck!
I want time to go fasterrrrrr!!! Courageeeeeeeeee…. goshh I don’t want to re read this haha it sounds so cheesyyyyyyyyyyy :/ lmao!
