Nothing like the rain when you’re in outer space

As I sat here listening to some of my current favourite songs for the first time in a very long time, I found myself paying much more attention to the lyrics than usual. Having just gone through my first break-up, a lot of the songs that I have always loved and listened to suddenly took on a complete new meaning.


The French Riviera

After 6 months of searching for a job in France, I landed an internship at a real estate agent in Nice. I was not quite sure what my job would entail, but at the time I was simply relieved that I had finally secured a French internship after countless rejections. At this point, only a few weeks before the "year abroad period" was due to begin, I could finally allow myself to feel as excited as everyone else at the prospect of living and working abroad for the next year.
