  • French Test Update: Bureaucracy Strikes Again

    Awful news from the Alliance Francaise that I just received via email:

    Bonjour Celina,

    Thank you for your patience while waiting for the updates on the DELF/DALF exams from the December 2014 session. As you might know, the DELF/DALF exams are taken at the national level and the confidentiality regulations stipulate that all exams need [...]
  • The Final French Days

    I write to you live from LAX where my connecting flight to SFO is delayed 2.5 hours. I’m tired, I stink, and I’m no longer in France which is really weird. That being said, these last few weeks have been amazing and this is what I did…

    Last week, Tuesday the 25th perhaps, I [...]

  • The Beginning of the End

    I have been a busy beaver (or castor) the last couple weeks, trying to get in as much Paris as possible before leaving on the 5th. Thanks to my to-do list I’ve had some direction, but let me tell you – time passes trop vite!!!

    On the first Friday of the month, I visited [...]

  • Parisian Confessions: Naked Services


    Also, I leave in about two and a half weeks. CRAZY. Still poor, need to spend a couple hundred dollars to get luggage and pay for said luggage, so feel free to help me get my stuff home by clicking here.

  • Riviera Dreaming

    Before heading off to the French Riviera on Friday, there were normal things that happened in Paris: tried to redye my hair (but now it’s blue again, DAMNIT!), had a home-made crêpe by a Bretonne (girl from the region in France from which crêpes originate), chowed down on some bimbimbap (not an important [...]

  • Chateau Life

    It was really just a matter of time – everyone in Paris seems to be sick, and it was my turn a couple weeks ago. I tried to sweat and sleep it out, got some pho at Asian Soupe in Belleville, and went through a box of tissues before meeting my tutor on [...]

  • Parisian Confessions: La Procrastinatrice

    I’ve always had a knack for procrastinating, but it’s insane how good I’ve gotten in the last couple months. This whole no-class-private-tutor thing is NOT helpful for my natural ability to put off work. Things I have done: posed with a giant pumpkin, clean the apartment, paint my nails, rewrite and reorganize my hand-written [...]

Welcome, good to have you here. Would you like a drink? I can't get you anything, because obviously you're on a website and that's just silly, but I thought I'd ask because it's polite.

First off, you should check out Celina in Paris, my new project detailing the adventures of my preparations for and soon-to-be life in France.

Peak around. Below are Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram feeds. To my right, my Twitter. Obvi, there's some overlap because I'm a 20-something who pushes some of the same content to multiple social media outlets (some would call that multi-tasking... some are also just lazy).

I'm awesome, and since you're here, you must be, too. Nice to awesome meet you.

    French Test Update: Bureaucracy Strikes Again

    Awful news from the Alliance Francaise that I just received via email:

    Bonjour Celina,

    Thank you for your patience while waiting for the updates on the DELF/DALF exams from the December 2014 session.
    As you might know, the DELF/DALF exams are taken at the national level and the confidentiality regulations stipulate that all exams need to be taken on the same scheduled dates and following the exact hourly schedule.
    Unfortunately, due to weather conditions, we weren’t able to follow these regulations for the C1/C2 levels during our December 2014 session at Alliance Francaise de San Francisco. Therefore, after conversations with the CIEP in France and the Department of Educational Affairs of the French Embassy in Washington DC, the decision was taken to cancel the exams for the C1 and C2 levels.
    We will of course refund you the full exam fee that you have paid with us and we apologize for this situation. Please send me your current mailing address and our accountant will prepare the refund check.
    If I can assist with any questions that you might have, please let me know.
    Merci!
    What does that mean for me? Basically the last three months I spent in Paris I was studying for this test. I move back home, take the fucking test, and have to wait two and a half fucking months to hear that it’s void. I totally understand the circumstances, but am rightfully disappointed. Also, I’ve not studied French in the same way since, so if I were to try retaking this test I probably wouldn’t do as well as I had done in December.
    Bummer, yes, but it wouldn’t have been a Parisian adventure if the bureaucratic bullshit of the French didn’t come back to haunt me one last time.
    C’est la vie, n’est pas?
