» 10th Annual French and Francophone Film Festival in San Diego

I have a complete list of all the movies that will be shown at this year’s film festival over on my study abroad blog. I’ve also added trailers for you to see.

The film festival is organized by the SDSU French department and the French Club. It is free for anyone so you don’t have to be an SDSU student to attend. Also all movies will have subtitles for those who don’t speak French or are still beginning to learn the language. It is such opportunity for those who enjoy French film since we don’t get too many French films here in San Diego.

I will of course be there so I hope to see some of you there.  :-)

New video over at my study abroad YouTube channel!

Ryanair is a very popular airline among study abroad students known for their cheap flights and also their fees. In this video I’ll be sharing some of my tips so you can avoid paying those pesky Ryanair fees.

I started a study abroad YouTube channel to complement my blog and this is my first video.

If you have any video requests please let me know.

Today I sent an email to every study abroad student who’s currently abroad and that have contacted me just to check in on them. I’m so glad to hear that they’re doing well and enjoying France. Sure most of them are frustrated with registration but damn, the French system could not be any more different than the American one.

Overall I’m very happy to hear that I can lend a helping hand and be their unofficial study abroad adviser.

I had my first public speaking triumph ever! I went to the study abroad pre-departure orientation at my uni as a speaker this time. I spoke about my study abroad experience in Paris and gave some tips to the future generation of study abroad students.

I think I just love helping people so much that it didn’t matter that I was speaking in a lecture hall. I have no idea but for some reason I was very charismatic and bubbly today.

It was weird…
