“The end is right there!” Every professor said this phrase this week, thinking that it would make students happy… The idea of me leaving scares me. I just got used to this new way of life, this American lifestyle which helps you to define yourself, allows you to discover great opportunity and much more. Me leaving this and being happy? No!
Anyways, I can remember every detail of my last post which shows how fast time is flying. More changes have come to my new way of life. In fact, I believe there is a strong correlation between the amount of time left in the US and the amount of cash in my wallet. Therefore, I can say goodbye to my Vanilla Latte every morning. Instead, I started cooking nice omelets thanks to the $1,12 egg box at Trader Joe’s. Also, I never knew why we associate students’ diet to pasta, now I know. I make pasta every day. First, it was tedious because it took me a lot of time and the end result wasn’t very good. Now, in my humble opinion, I’m a chef. Room 602 is now officially Ristorante Marrochino!
This week has been one of the most important weeks of this American political year. Although I don’t understand much the American political landscape, I went to an event organized by Prof. Porter where we enjoyed discussing the outcomes of these elections while savoring some pizza slices. I knew that the Democrats had to win a lot of seats to take control of the Senate but it wasn’t the case. In fact, it was a win-win situation for both parties. One of the good news of these elections is the number of women elected to the House of Representatives.
As I have a couple of exams next week, I went to several tutoring sessions at Gelman. It was particularly interesting to have someone else than the professor who re-explains the lecture in a way that I can understand. It’s free, efficient and very helpful.
This weekend, I went shopping and I bought some gifts for my relatives. Finally, the good news of the week is that I am invited to Mr. Leblanc’s house for Thanksgiving. I’m really looking forward to Thanksgiving. Cant’ wait to eat that turkey tight!
Also, what’s going on with the weather? Anyways, I have my solution for it:
PS: 0°C= 32°F 🙂
