Here I am, the end of my American journey is near. In three months, I will be home in France. It is really strange Â to think about this; I am used to my life in Rhode Island now. For eight months I have been climbing the University of Rhode Island hills, eating the cookies at the dining hall, taking Zumba classes at the gym, spending hours at the libraryâ€¦ I am going to miss all of that!
Of course I am super excited to finish school and go home, see my friends and family, eat French food (actually, thatâ€™s what I am the most excited about!) but I feel that I still have a lot to discover here. I just did a lot of Rhode Island â€œmust-doâ€ in the past month. As the sun finally came back last week-end (thank god!) my roommate took me down to Narragansett each for a nice sun bathing. We also enjoyed a delicious New England Clam Chowder, followed by a just as delicious lobster roll. No wonder why Rhode Island is called the Ocean State!
Then, I ate a marvelous peanut butter cup Brickleyâ€™s ice cream.Here is another thing that I love: Reeseâ€™s peanut butter cup ( which by the way I discovered thanks to the Cigarâ€™s editor who bought some for one of our meeting, thanks Alli!)I will try to bring some to France, if it fits in my suitcase. The suitcase issue is a big one. I bought so many things here (especially clothes, which are cheaper than in France!) and I want to buy more memories to bring back with me. I guess the huge amount of photos I took is enough, but still.
One thing I am not going to miss is the nightlife around URI. Frat parties? No thanks, that is not for me. BonVue? That is not really my thing either. What I prefer here is Ocean Mist, it can be really fun on Ticket Tuesday. Â I also had a party at my house for my birthday which ended at 1 a.m. because ofâ€¦the cops. Yes, what is wrong with them! I guess we were too loud and my neighbors called but come one, it was my 22nd birthdayâ€¦ We will rarely see such a thing in Europe.
Anyway, all of this, ups and downs, have been a part of my life I will never forget. Rhode Island, I hope I will see you again soon (for the summer please!)
