Hooray for youtube!

Finally my short video has uploaded on facebook! And it looks pretty fly thanks to the HD awesomeness that is my new camera. Check it out!

Well this will probs be a short update unless my writing decides to run away without me again. Which it might. But maybe not.

Today I mostly hung around the house, but at like 6 ish we headed to the beach. The beach here is crazy different- like there are hardly any waves. There is a gentle push and pull or the water, so it’s not like it’s stagnant, but since the Mediterranean Sea is enclosed, there aren’t crazy waves like at the Jersey shore. In fact, the waves in the video I posted above are rather abnormal; they were just happening because of the coldish wind that was being blown down from the north of France that day. So it’s really cool, you can swim and stuff although it is a bit difficult because the water does move up and down. Sometimes it feels like you’re hardly moving at all! But the water is very clear and the sand is super soft and you can honestly like swim laps in the ocean. It was also really cool because people had their dogs on the beach, which my host dad said was technically not allowed, but they do it anyway. It made me think of how if there was even a freaking paw print in the sand at the Jersey shore, the lifeguards would be all “WUT IZ DIS.” Which then made me realize that there are no lifeguards (at least that I can clearly spot) at the beach here! I guess without waves the chance of accidental drowning decreases a fair bit, but it is still rather strange. Anyways, this boy was walking into the sea and his dog was following him faithfully behind. It was really rather cute! And then the boy kept going and the dog was like “lol no thanks” and turned back around.

Tonight we had pizza for dinner! IT WAS DELICIOUS. I was honestly a bit worried that it would be weird because Weiss talked about how pizza was different in French class, but it was very good! Also I went to pick it up with my host dad and there were like 2390583648 attractive men working there. And there I go with the large numbers again. Sorry, it’s become a bit of a habit.

Uh, I guess that’s it for now? This turned into a rather short post, I’m awfully proud of myself! Lolzzzz… yeah so I’m thinking about walking down to this secluded beach type place that I’ve heard is about a 15 minute walk from our house tomorrow. And I’d like to take a video tour type deal of the house since youtube seems to be working now. But I probably just jinxed it. Oh youtube whhyyyy? Er, right then. Good night everyone!
