Today I had my class at 1:30 like usual so I got ready to go and walked there...unfortunately I decided to wear my new shoes that day and by the time I reached Tanneurs my heels were acutally bleeding. It hurt all class, and to top that off I did the wrong homework so I didn't have it ready and she called on me first. That test next week is going to be hard if it was anything like that! I had to walk home after that...and I was scared for my feet. They already stung like crazy so I put some tissues in the back and treked home. Not a good day for my feet. After I cleaned them up and changed shoes, Valeria and Mamie came home with baguettes, ham and cheese to make sandwiches in the park right by our house. The guys came to join us and we spent the afternoon in the park together. It was sunny, warm and beautiful. I wish everyday if France would be that gorgeous! We also saw a kid get arrested in the park. There were over 10 police officers there for a kid that was about 16...I think it was a little excessive, but something big must have happened!

After that I had choir rehearsal, so I went to that while Val and Mamie went home. It was too long...like it is everyday, but it was needed! Bruckner is going to harder that Verdi's Requiem...even though it's only like 5 minutes long opposed t0 1.5 hours. It's definitely hard!
We got home just in time for dinner, which we ate quickly and then got ready to go out. It was St. Patrick's day and we promised each other we would go out even if the French didn't celebrate St. Patty's day. But they do. Everyone and their brother was out. Romain was trying to surprise me and show up after telling me he wasn't coming, but we ended up running into them before he could make his big entrance. We went to one place, but it was to crowded, and then Aaron came to find us and said they had room at their table...which they didn't. So we found another place that was relatively empty. In other words, everyone was out on the patio so we had the inside to ourselves. I got a glass of Vouvray wine. It's my favorite wine that I've found so far. And the girls got special drinks...that were way overpriced! It was a very calm St. Patty's, but bigger for me because I've never celebrated it in my life. Afterwards we spoke Spanish to Luze and her friends in Place Plumereau, and Romain showed off his Spanish skills...he didn't do too bad! Then they took us home and I'm exhausted so I'm off to bed. Goodnight!
