But on the following, we might have some snow. I’m trying not to hope too hard…
The morning was spent doing laundry and studying…
Finals start on Tuesday at 10 am. God am I scared. They’re so many, even though smaller, so I feel like I’m in high school all over again… only, I don’t have a whole year of tests to make up for the ones I may fail. I don’t want to have to retake classes back home!
Once lunchtime came, I went to buy a few Christmas gifts and a swimsuit. What? Yes. I’m going to have a
spa day next Saturday! A few friends are coming with me to Baden Baden (Germany), less than one hour away, because we got all so sad when we realized it could be the last time we saw each other.
Anyway, the interesting fact is that while buying socks at the mall, I was offered a fidelity card for that shop. «No, thanks» I replied «I’m going back home to Italy in two weeks.» «Oh» said the shopping assistant, quite surprised «then you speak very good french!». Now, it’s not just the compliment in itself. Back in early September, I went to that very shop and met that very shopping assistant (even though she didn’t remember, I’m sure). Back then she corrected my french (in a friendly but still annoying way). Today, she complimented me! This only reinforces the idea that what I’ve done here was good, and that my experience is complete.
So, while I’m still feeling nervous about my finals, I’m happy. Whatever comes this week, I know the last four months weren’t a loss of time.
(Now, wish me good luck!)
