A little Vaklempt

You're probably wondering why I was a bit bothered(understatement of the century) in my last post. Well, it sort of was an accumulation of little things that finally just pushed me over the edge into feeling hurt and upset. I won't get into all of them here because, like I said, I feel a bit limited in what I can say plus it's not really my thing to talk about people on here(umm, by people I meant English-speaking people only of course...haha.) Surprisingly and I say this because I don't think it came across that way, the blogging part of it was a very minor factor, but it still added to the enormous pile that are my current annoyances.

One thing is the eternal question mark about what I'm doing next year and where I'll be, that at this point, has come to a standstill and all I can do is wait. I'm crossing my fingers to hear soon, but hearing soon just means being called in for an interview, the position is not necessarily going to be mine. I should hear within the next two weeks and obviously once I have some answers, I will fill you all in on what I'm even talking about. But, I don't want to jinx it by talking about it here especially when I could potentially not even get an interview in the first place. On verra.

Then, Roomie#1 has decided since she's moving out in 20 days: 6 hours: 30 minutes: 15 seconds(ok, so that's just an approximation, can you tell I can't wait?), she doesn't really give an F about keeping the apt orderly, being disrespectful by bringing her FB over, not doing housework, smoking in the salon and just many other unpleasantries. It's driving me up the wall, but since she's leaving soon, I don't want to be picking a fight with her all the time because I want things to end on a good note. So for now, I'll just continue to range every morning when I get up, throw her stuff in her room, leave the window wide open to air out the salon, etc so I can still get my message across albeit passive-aggressively.

The last big thing was finding out that it's 99.9% sure my best friend from home won't be coming. It looks like a big opportunity has come up at work that would last for 4 months and just happens to start the week she was going to come over. So, it looks like I've gotta plan out an alternative vacation or else I'll be bored for 10 days straight. Any ideas? I'm thinking of tagging along with a friend to Marseille and Bordeaux, but I'll need to find 1 or 2 cities in between the two because she's going to Toulouse to visit her host bro and I don't want to impose myself. So, I'm thinking of Avignon, Nimes or Montpellier, but I'll let you know once I buy the tickets for the other places and then I'll have to get recommendations from all of you southerners!

Et voila, now you know what's been getting my goat!

i'm crossing my fingers for your interview!

Samantha a dit…

Well, I don't have the slightest clue as to what is going on, but I will be croising my doigts for you.

And I also have to say way to work the passive-aggressive angle, I'm impressed! What better way to beat the Frenchies at their own game?!?

Emily a dit…

Good luck with the interview!

Sorry to hear about your friend.

I think Avignon is worth a visit. Any chance, you can pass through the Alps???

nicole a dit…

well definitely avignon so you can stay with me. but nimes and montpelier are both awesome. so really you can't lose!

Leah a dit…

V-Thanks, I don't actually have one yet, so maybe first cross those doigts that I even get one? Haha.

Sam-Yeah, I don't even know what I'm talking about most of the time. I guess if you can't beat em, join em, right?

E-Thanks and as for the Alps, it's a possibility since it's all pretty much up in the air. I'll let you know once I figure more details out!

N-Haha, thanks for the offer, I just might have to take you up on it!

Au Soleil Levant a dit…

Good luck with the interview, and with Roomie 1 (where in the heck is the number sign on French keyboards????). Your vacation sounds great though! I have lots of envie to visit all of those places, am thinking about doing Avignon in May. You should go just to check it out for me :)

joy suzanne a dit…

I hope you get good news, Leah!

Leah a dit…

ASL-Thanks! I have envie to visit all the places you went to too, but my wallet would be very angry with me if I did that, so for now, I'm sticking to France. I'll be sure to fill you in on Avignon!

JS-Thanks, croise those doigts for me!
