Damn you French. Damn you!

The first thing I did when I started 365 til 30 (other than have a panic attack because I was scared that I took on more than I could handle) was sign up for French classes. I stupidly assumed that my French goal would be one of the easiest to tackle. Boy was I wrong because easy it was not. It brought me right back to high school French class and I was quickly reminded that while some things change a lot in 10 years…others don’t. I happen to still hate being in a classroom situation and learning the French language still proves hard for me. To make matters worse I had my type A mother (love you mom) as a fellow French student. Clearly, I like a challenge.

I was chatting with an old friend Shaun, an actor who’s working and living in Paris for three months. He was telling me how fabulous it is to live in Paris…he also mentioned that he is well on his way to being fluent in French.  My stomach dropped. Oh the jealousy! Not only is he living in my favorite city in the world but he’s also on his way to being fluent in French! Truly unfair! After we hung up I decided that I am packing up and moving to Paris. I’m kidding. Although doesn’t that sound romantic? Moving to Paris just because. I wish! I am now convinced that if I could spend time in Paris that I too would speak French once and for all. Until I figure out how to manifest living in Paris the month of June I will have to purchase Rosetta Stone tapes…or maybe find a brilliant and very patient French tutor?

** PS. My plan to force Brian to watch christmas movies last night to celebrate Bert’s arrival failed miserably and we ended up watching “Inglorious Bastards”. Not really the cozy movie I was imaging.**
