T-minus three months! Incredible! I have been in France for seven months now and I can't believe how fast time went by! I am already starting to feel sad when thinking about having to leave this beautiful city in less than 3 months.
To be honest, I have not always appreciated all the amazing opportunities that I was given. I was sad, unhappy and not satisfied with myself from time to time. But now I think I know the reason for my mental disaster - the weather. Yes, believe me, Parisian winter is quite horrible, no snow, plenty of rain and fog and tiredness.. Not something to be happy about. However, I am incredibly thankful to have a supporting family, a loving host family and lovely friends here in Paris that helped me to get rid of my winter sickness & now that the days are starting to get longer & that Spring is officially here I couldn't be happier! I honestly have to suppress my tears when thinking about having to leave this beautiful life in less than 3 months..
BUT, I have so many beautiful things to look forward to. Firstly, I'll be back to my family in Austria & my beautiful friends (Gosh, I missed them). Secondly, I'll finally be back to my dancing school! I missed this so much during this year! And secondly, I'll move to Vienna with two of my best friends & I'm gonna start studying! I honestly can't wait to finally start my studies in Vienna, I am super excited for that!
So, after all, I can say that my time in Paris has been absolutely incredible so far, with many ups and downs and hard as well as good times, but hey, that's life, isn't it? I'm happy to have mastered all the difficulties and challenges & I'm happy to be living here for three more months! La vie est belle, il faut en profiter - n'est-ce pas?
This spring, I have been up to some great things. Besides visiting beautiful castles, interesting museums & some incredibly delicious breakfast places, I am currently preparing myself for university & a French Exam in Paris, which is quite exciting!
I really hope you are all doing well & enjoy the beauty of this year's spring!
Je doutais toujours si la vie était aussi belle que les fleurs du printemps. Vue que ces fleurs disparaissent assez tôt, je n'étais jamais sûre si la beauté de la vie reste pour toujours. Est-ce qu'elle est éphémère comme les fleurs du printemps? Est-ce que la vie est quelque chose de fugace, dont la beauté n'est vu que pour un petit moment?
Oui, plus ou moins, la beauté de la vie est fugace et il faut en profiter aussi longtemps qu'on peut. Mais, si on le fait correctement, ça suffit. Si on le fait proprement et avec plein d'enthousiasme et de passion, on ne voit pas le caractère éphémère, on ne voit que la beauté.
I hope you are all doing well & I wish you all the best!
