however, since i do live here, it doesn’t get much journal love since i see it every day. but don’t worry, i was productive and finally got around to looking through some photos I made during my first week or two here.
When people ask me why I am in Evreux or the academie de Rouen, they are always surprised when I say that I chose it. After all, none of the other assistants (or workers) put Rouen as their #1. Just me. And I always give 4 reasons.
1. Close to Paris
2. My prof came from Rouen, so it seemed like i knew it more (even though it was still as mysterious as the rest of france)
3. Rouen is very unpopular, so i thought my chances of being accepted would be higher if I picked somewhere that no one else willingly wanted to go.
4. the clouds
one, two, and three make sense. but people always are confused by number four.
always. how can one not love those puffy clouds that make the sky so dramatic and lovely? i’ve visited the south of france – and while it’s nice, the skies are clear and blue. like texas, which is all i’ve seen my entire life. i want cloudy, diffused lighting, puffy goodness!
and i’ve got it.
evreux, i love you!
