Clearing something up

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.

Santé y’all.


About Emilie

I'm a small girl with big ambitions and very little common sense it seems. I decided after I graduated from college that I would move from my little city of Lafayette Louisiana to the raging monster city that is Paris. In 4 months of planning I have now uprooted everything I had in an amazing town to live in a truly wild place where I have no idea WHAT I am going to do. But isn't that the fun of it all. So here is cheers to getting lost, breaking hearts, starving, and many wonderful adventures that come along with finding yourself.
