I'm still alive but busy!!

Hello everyone,

I am extremely busy, as you all see because of the absence of posts, but I am still alive!

It is the end of the second trimester, so the teachers are throwing tests at us left and right.  I also took two BAC Blancs- a practice BAC- one for SES and one for French.  I got a 7.5/20 for the SES and the French one we still have not gotten back.

I am having a great time here in France, like normal, and have gone skiing once more!
It was very nice in fact, because I had a lesson then we took the ski lift to the top of the mountain, which was very pretty not a cloud in the sky, to descend some harder slopes.  I followed the rest of the group fine, a bit slow but it's normal for someone who has skied three times in her life!  It was the beginning of February vacation for the Parisiens, so we now have seven more people in the house!  It is not fair, they get to ski all day while I am at school.

In fact, I have realized something.

I am learning downhill skiing, but when I get home in Holliston will I be able to find ski slopes for downhill skiers?

If anyone knows good downhill ski slopes I would greatly appreciate it.  I want to ski when I get back.

At least in New England there is snow, we still haven't gotten snow.  The last time it snowed was the 18th December.  There has been some snowfall in the mountains, but not that much either way.  There were large areas of the mountain where there was absolutely no snow!

I hope all of you in New England are enjoying the most likely awesome ski season!

I am now reading a book called Candide in French class, by Voltaire.  It is a philosophical book which is very hard to understand, the logic is in fact not very logical if you know what I mean...

Anyway, I am alive, if I had not already specified, it is just that I am having such a good time that I have not found the time to write.

Thanks for reading and I hope that I will be able to write after my two weeks of not-stop ski!

Oh yeah, I almost forgot!

I am going to England!!!

It is a school trip for one week after February vacation and I am so excited!

I will be an American among the French going to England to learn English!!

I have to go set the table, I really am busy!

    Sounds like fun, and we are waiting for MORE PICTURES! As for ski, I think there are a number of smaller places locally like Nashoba Valley and Wachusett, but the bigger mountains are in New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Western Mass.

    Glad you're having so much fun.
