Becoming a Native

February 25, 2013

As the time passes, I realize I am becoming more and more of a native. I listen to my music on the bus and the tram instead of constantly peering out the window for fear of missing my stop. I’ve had to recharge the minutes on my cell phone and pretty soon I will have to buy yet another bus pass for the month of March. The days are passing so quickly but I am happy to say I don’t feel like it’s slipping through my fingers. After reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower over Christmas break I decided that my new years resolution for 2013 would be to “participate”. For the month of February, I feel like I have lived up to my news years resolution. I went to the “Fripes Party” which in my opinion appeared to be a thrift shop, a soccer game, the history museum of Nantes, the Machine, as well as the farmer’s market. Considering each experience has been eye opening and wonderful I will continue to profiter.
