Okay, yes, I will be staying in Paris for a while. Before I wasn’t too sure because to be perfectly honest, I think there are other cities that have more to offer me personally and the ugly truth is that as much as I like Paris, I don’t love it.
It’s probably just that, almost a year in, I have yet to completely adapt to this city. When I moved back to LA after a year teaching in France, I was devastated. I grew up there and so to me, moving back home felt like I was taking a step backwards. I promised myself that if I was going to stay, I would have to find reasons to love this place. I decided to approach it with new eyes and realized that when you love you a city, it loves you back. I stayed for four years.
For now, I’m okay not loving Paris and I still want to live here.
Okay, so what happened this week?
