Long one...

Still no internet at home....grrr. It’s so annoying. We got the Freebox in the mail yesterday but the service is not ready. These people need to get it together. It’s been over 4 weeks since we ordered it and still nothing.
Well, the week is over and the weekend almost is too. Friday night we went out for Liz’s birthday. We went to O’Bryans and then to the Salle des Coffres again. It wasn’t as busy as last time but it was fun. I can’t believe what goes on in bars here sometimes. When you go in the bar you have to go down a flight of stairs. At the bottom there is the dance floor. So basically there is a chance that everyone looks at you when you walk in. Some people actually dance on the stairs..anyway, at one point during the night there were two guys dancing on the steps. They took their shirts off...then the DJ said something about them so of course we all look. Then he’s saying something else and they take their pants off. OMG. So there are these two dudes standing there in their underwear. One is even wearing tighty whities. So....the DJ says something else and the one guys turns around and moons us....OMG x 100000. Just when I thought they couldn’t go any further, the DJ says something else and guess what the guy pulls out....yea that is right....krazy. I can’t believe that. What kind of bar is this??? Haha.
On a good side of the bar...I saw this girl that I saw in the tram about two weeks ago. She looked so familiar and this time I was determined to ask her if she was from Canada. It turns out she is and I skated with her in Winnipeg in 1999-2000. That is crazy. So wierd.
Yesterday the landlord came over at like 8h30 (morning) and we didn’t get home till about 3. He had some repairs to do here and we had a few things to discuss. Hasn’t been the best landlord I have a had to deal with, and maybe that has something to do with the fact that he is a "French" landlord. Haha. Who knows. Landlords are always out there to save money.
I didn’t get up to too much yesterday, only left the house to go to the grocery store, but I managed to not take a nap. I didn’t want to take a nap because A) I thought I would either sleep all day or B) I would wake up grumpy. So, last night I really didn’t do much. Jenn came over for a bit and we just chilled and watched some TV. Today I haven’t done much. It is nicer out than yesterday. Yesterday it was so gray and dull. Atleast the sun is peaking through today. I am going to go use the internet for a bit and I am going to go round a friends place for a bit. I should try and do a little work though it sucks not having the internet when I want to get some stuff off it. Oh well, soon enough.
I am really enjoying my job here. For me to say that after 5 weeks is pretty good. The students are really nice and they make an effort. It was a huge step up from highschool. And I think that helps me in the world of prepping. I like knowing that they will try in my class and they are friendly etc. I can even say that I enjoy my job enough that I would already consider it a second year, although I doubt that will happen. There are a lot of other factors that will be playing in on what I do with my life next year.
I start holidays in 12 days!!! I will have one week off. These holidays are for Toussaint (All Saints). I will not be going on elaborate trip like I did last year. This year I will be going for a relaxing week at Bernards place. Kind of funny that this year I will actually be GOING to La Chatre for my holidays instead of trying to leave for them. Haha. Quite funny. I am annxious to go and to see Bernard. It has been 2 weeks now since I last saw him, and by the time we see each other it will have been almost 4 weeks. That is quite a long time, though definitely not the 3.5 months we did this summer. I will also get to see a couple other friends, including Remi, which I am really excited about. I miss having him around at the school. Always was great to talk with him. He is such a sweetheart.
After the holidays I will not be working as many hours. I am really going to have to try and find something else to keep me busy....because if I don’t, I know that I will crazy thinking about certain things...or a certain someone. I need to do some work on French, even though I have been told my french is getting really good (Yeah me!). There are just things that sometimes I question and so I need to do some refreshing as well as more written. I feel I have lost it a bit. Maybe I can take more time and start really cooking. We’ll see.
Anyway, I’m going to get going here. I hope everyone is well, wherever you may be. Keep in touch
