In fact, every school day for me is different, but all Mondays are the same, all Tuesdays etc. So here is my schedule for every week, I start school every day at 8 am.
11h-History and Geography
14h-History and Geography
14h-SES (Sciences Economics and Sociology)
15h-History and Geography
16h-18h-Arts Plastiques (Art class)
8h-History and Geography
11h-13h-TPE (a group project that we present in March)
14h-15:30- SVT (Sciences of Life and Earth)
16h-18h- Phys Ed
Yes, my school days are very long, except for Wednesdays, but I will get to that . Now that it is Daylight Savings time, it gets dark around five thirty so I get to walk home in the dark! It is not a big deal though because I am almost always with Adélie or one of my other friends. Also, I take karate on Mondays, so I go straight to my friend Mélanie's house with Natacha after school.

Another curiosity is études, it essentially translates to study hall. But you are not assigned to a classroom, you can do what you want because it is a free hour. There are rooms for études, simple classrooms where you can work or listen to music or play cards. Most of the time, I have études at the same time as my class so we go into the études classrooms and work together on homework or just talk.

Now the most interesting of days that you will find in France, Wednesdays. I have class until noon and then Adélie and I go home to eat lunch. It has become a tradition on Wednesdays to eat Ramen, there are so many different flavors and watch the Simpson until 13:45. We have saxophone lessons at the Scart-à-B from 14-15:15, so we have to eat before we leave. After the sax lessons, Anne picks us up and we go grocery shopping. This takes between an hour and two hours, there is a lot to buy! My favorite part of the grocery shopping is picking the chocolate. They have a full aisle of it! Chocolate is very important to the French, and there are so many different kinds and flavors that it takes me fifteen minutes just to look at them all.

Now onto my house here in Bonneville! The house really is a normal house, I have a bedroom there is a living room and a kitchen and all that. I am not really quite sure what else to say by way of the house. The garden is huge and they grow at least ten different kinds of veggies, including that HUGE pumpkin that we ate and enormous zuchini also.
