I should have maybe written this before but I really sort of thought it was obvious. I just want to clear things up to people who may not know me or quite get what I am doing here
This blog is the story of MY life. It is about the observations I make and opinions that I form on the things that I see and do in this country.
This is not the ultimate guide to Paris and I am not a reporter for the New York Times. I write about things I see every day and how they strike me. Also in this format I am required to generalize. Are ALLLLLLLLL French people how I write them? NO not in the slightest. The examples of people that I use aren’t even people I know none of these people include any friends or acquaintances unless I say so.
I am not an expert on the subject of cultural differences, nor am I in the domain of French culture. What I do know how to do is express myself in writing. This expression includes a humoristic approach to all the frustrations and freak-out moments that I encounter in my everyday. And I mean EVERYday.
I like to laugh at the differences between Americans and the French. I find the French to be the sort of people that take criticisms so well and maybe the only culture that truly understands how to laugh at themselves. I just hope to be able to share some of the humor that helps me get through a lot in a huge city that I’m just learning to understand.
Could this blog be informative? Yes I think so. Is everything in it a global truth? no not at all. Could someone observe what I have in a different way? I really hope so.
This Blog is MY story. It is not full of facts, but things that I have lived, learned, and chosen to share.
