This twenty-year-old is ready to conquer the world. Sort of.
Let me conquer the City of Lights first.

two thousand six

I spent my New Year's in Montreal (with the rest of the 18-21 year olds from Massachusetts and New York). It was great fun. I went with my best friend from home, Lesley, and a bunch of her friends from school... and their friends. There were twenty of us total.

The point of the story is that although, obviously, I'm aware that Montreal is bilingual, I was still surprised to see how much was in French. It was the first time in a long time that I had to put my French knowledge and skills to the test. I think I did okay... I'll have to work on not taking the easy way out and speaking English. Gotta start using my French when I finally am overseas.

Anyway, Happy New Year. Or as the French say, Bonne Annee!

Hi Julie. Good luck with the trip to Paris. Just a piece of unsolicited advice that I wish to give on your blog - please change the colour of the text in your blog from grey. It is very hard (if not impossible) to read what you have written. The only way I could read what you were writing was by highlighting the text with my mouse. I am sure you would get a lot more feedback on your posts if you were to do this.
