We Were Staying in Paris (…and Dancing in the Streets of Barcelona)

If you’re able to shamelessly catch the songs in my blog title, this is me figuratively giving you a hug:

All kidding aside, my blog has been fairly inactive for the last month (cue me getting asked by everyone about what is going down in my life):

HunterCollege

A few weeks ago, I got word that I am officially attending CUNY Hunter College in the fall to continue my BSN degree! I will be able to keep up a running blog in my time in NYC, and be able to give you the ins and outs of the city (Once I fully develop that on my own, of course!) Still unsure if I will be graduating with the class of 2019 or 2020, but as long as I finish my degree, that’s all that matters.

I’m still single, no worries there.

ALSO I still love french toast so all is normal here.

Now for the REAL reason behind this post:

Tonight starts my spring break, where I’ll be heading off to Paris on a 630pm flight (yay!) to stay for a few days, then flying off to Barcelona for a view of the sights, sangria, and practicing my Spanish, of course. (fun fact: they speak Catalin, which is a combination of French and Spanish. So my muddled Spanish will only help me be able to ask questions in something closer to the native language.)

Honestly, I had no intention of going abroad for spring break, but since a few of my friends study in Paris and Barcelona, I figured now would be a better time than ever to make a trip there!

(Plus, now I suppose I can see if the rain in Spain truly does fall mainly on the plain.)

I don’t have a straight itinerary of everything I’m going to do, rather a list of things I want to see. If you have any more ideas for me, drop me a message and let me know!
