Get ready... I'm about to "glorify busy". For as brilliant (yes, trying to sound British) as last weekend was, I returned to Paris with quite the insane week. I have one midterm paper due on Friday, another due on Monday, and one more due Wednesday. In addition to the extra stressful workload, I've begun interning twice week which is not only an amazing opportunity, but a disconcerting elimination of most, if not all of my mid-week free time. Then there's laundry to be washed, markets to be visited, and yet another friend's birthday in need of celebrating. Oh, and did I mention all is not well with family? Distance doesn't make it any easier.
You might say I'm a bit of a wreck at the moment, and if so, you wouldn't entirely be incorrect. I must admit I smiled and sighed on my walk from the metro today though. I had a Bob's Juice Bar green cocktail in hand (thanks for the rec, Gillian!) and picked up une demi tradition (half-size traditional baguette) along the way. Even though I'm not at my best, it is good to be back... or dare I say, home.
