today is a good day

Got round to choosing my modules for Montpellier on Friday and I'm studying a mix of Sociology and literature which will be really great.  Going to a different university on the ERASMUS program means I can try something new that I can't do here in Cardiff.

I scanned all the paperwork today and e-mailed it off so all I need to do is wait for a reply e-mail confirming my enrollment and then I can sign for the apartment.  I also found out on Friday that my parents could drive me down to France from Germany.  The original plan had been that I was going to go on my own.  I'm so glad they can set me up in Montpellier.  It would have been hell trying to get all my books, clothes and things to France on my own.  The thing that scared me the most was arriving on my own in an empty apartment.  Fish out of water so to say.

Things are finally falling into place and I can finally start to get excited about it all rather then nervous constantly.  Things are looking up.

moving forward

So finally things have been moving forward on my year abroad front.  It's been non active until about yesterday which was so frustrating.  I'm the kind of person who needs to have plans to keep everything running, I need to know what happens and when it happens.  But obviously it's harder with this situation because French administration takes longer and then even here at my uni in Cardiff none of the departments are synched up together and nobody really knows what's going on.  

But yesterday I got my last bit of paperwork for the uni signed so that needs to be scanned in and sent off and then I need to sort out my paperwork for my formal flat application so hopefully by the start of June I should have most things out of the way.

It's been giving me so much headache all of this.  I feel like I run around with the biggest frown on my face and have given into watching Teen Mom 2 to stop thinking about next year.  Yeah it's reached that stage.  I'm just trying to remind myself that after this I will be able to do anything, and the skills I'm learning now will last me a lifetime.

new blog, new adventures

Hello all, this is me: Nina.  I'm 20 years old and currently a seconds year student of English Literature and French at Cardiff University in Wales.  I'm in the middle of the loong and tedious process of starting my year abroad in Montpellier in France.  It's part of my course and I will be spending my third year attending the 'UniversitĂ© Paul-ValĂ©ry, Montpellier III, Arts, Lettres, Langues, Sciences Humaines et Sociales'.

I thought this blog would be the best place to talk about the experiences that I am currently going through and my preparation for this year.   It's going to be a difficult year, I know that much but I also know that it's probably going to be one of the best experiences I will ever have.
