I want to move to France. I’ve been thinking about that more and more lately. By the end of the year I will have my bachelor’s in writing (yes, it is going to finally happen) and I keep thinking about what next.

While it would be smart to go find a state-side job and become a self sustainable adult, a big portion of my psyche has been in constant flirtation with daily day dreams regarding Paris. Or Marseilles. Or Nice. I just want to be over there.

This post really stems from today’s daily prompt about what you would do if you could wake up fluent in a language. If I woke up fluent in French (aside from the six years studying the language that I have forgotten) I think I would do whatever was possible to get over there.

I think I have a bit of a delusion about being an American writer in Paris; drinking absinthe, midnight walks in the rain, waking up with a view of the Eiffel tower. At the very least, I would love to just go look at stuff – maybe sit at a street corner bistro.

While I go spend a solid hour looking at trip advisor, take a look at some other posts from this prompt:

Welcome to the empty recesses of my mind! I'm a recent college graduate realizing a Creative Writing degree was a bad idea. Give me a pity like. Or you could check out the about sections (on the front page and about this author page) on my blog to learn a little more about me. Whatever. https://thebohemianrockstarpresents.wordpress.com/
