I wanna go home

Don’t let the title set you off! I really do love it here. The family is incredible, the people here are so friendly, the food… is not terrible (every time i want to complain about the cafeteria food here, i just remind myself of my first year eating at CJ’s). So then what is it?…

weekend

Okay, quick recap of the weekend! On Friday, we had a Soirée Québécoise where everyone had to wear traditional costumes (or if you were like me and didn’t have one, anything plaid worked).

But praise God I…
