C’est officielle… ooh la la…

I booked Montreal!!! YEEEEEHAH!!!!!!

So excited.  I filled out the form online, faxed in my credit card, and phoned… although I had to say “Est-ce que vous parlez Anglais?” to the person which is slightly ominous.

They confirmed.  So I’m in Montreal at least 3 weeks this summer.  I’m thinking of extending the trip at the end because of a few events occuring at that time but I need to think how much of my summer I can justify being away… solo.  It would be only $40 a night to extend my residence at the university.

Today I applied for funding.  It meant I had to fill out pages and pages about how this trip benefits my school, my professional growth plan, my board, etc. etc.  It was crazy how none of the questions had anything to do with Chez Dora (a breakfast place I dig), or life on patios taking in all the art-y culture.

Oh man oh man oh man I am PUMPED about this trip.  Hopefully I get some French out of it too.  😉

    i’m SO excited for you!!!!!! (ou: je suis TRES excite pour vous!!!!!!)

    your mission, if you choose to accept it, will be to share what this passage from Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery means to you:

    “Voici mon secret: il est tres simple. On ne voit bien qu’avec le couer. L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.”
