Posts Tagged ‘Barack Obama’

Hey, everyone! Sorry I haven’t been keeping you all up to date! Work and my life have been really hectic recently. I’m in France, though, so it makes it all better! I can’t even begin to tell you how much weight I am gaining! All of the cheese, chocolate, NUTELLA, breads, ugh! C’est magnifique! Every morning, I tell myself to remember throughout the day to brace myself. By the end of the day, I know there’s always tomorrow. Hopefully one of these days I will learn some self-control.

By the way, I know I posted this before, but I’m so happy about President Obama. It feels like such an honor to be alive during such a historic time and being able to call Barack the president. One of my high school friends contacted me and we were just fawning over it. I don’t know a single supporter of Obama that when watching the inaugeration, didn’t have tears in their eyes.

Some of you have taken the poll a few posts ago asking me to talk more about my high school experiences. So I thought, I’m in France so why not talk about my first experience there! It’s not exactly about my high school experience, seeing as it wasn’t exactly school. But, it was the summer going into junior year that I had my first romance, whiskey and coke, trip to France, and bite of nutella. All of which would change my life forever.

I should start this out by saying that in school, I wasn’t exactly in the “in-crowd”. There was one group of about 10 girls always buying designer clothes, not caring about grades, and having amazing social lives. Then there was where I fit in. A group of about 5 girls who loved each other equally. We were each others best friends, but we were also friendly with the rest of the grade. I don’t know if this is making sense. The most important part of this fact is that you understand that going to an all-girls school and not having the best social life, my experience in France was dynamic.

I did a summer program in Paris. I went with “Miranda” the year we went into our junior year of high school. The drinking, the smoking, the partying, the friends, the history, the Seine, the shopping, the independence, the no school aspect! It was all a dream come true! I took Photography as my major and Cuisine as my minor. “Big”, a guy from L.A. was in my Cuisine major. I remember sitting down at my desk, looking up, and seeing his face. I was shocked that people that good looking were in my cooking class. But I guess I was staring. I looked up at me, caught my gaze, and gave me the “guy nod” and a half smile. I remember the second thing he did that caught my attention. We were going around the room talking about why we decided to take the class, my reason being that my mom loved to cook so I wanted to share her passion. When it came to him, he said basically he just loved to eat, and this class seemed like a good excuse to eat french food and pasteries. This got the whole class laughing. I looked at him, he was staring at me, making sure I heard his joke.

It was the start of something new.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

Congratulations to newly titled President-Elect Barack Obama. All my thoughts for John McCain. He fought hard. But, I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that Barack Obama is our new president. It’s taken more than two centuries, but we have an African-American president.
Let me just say, I’m proud to be an American. Are you ready for change? Yes, we can
