i like who i’ve become here.
not sure if people back home will, though.
Route de la Couronnette, Perroy, Switzerland; with Lake Geneva and the Chablais Alps
i’m currently stuck somewhere between the blissful feeling of “i’m-going-to-eat-everything-nom” and the more dreaded feeling of “oh-god-i’m-going-to-be-unrecognizably-chubby-in-three-months.” it is very, very possible, especially considering the amount of cheese and bread i am eating. and the chocolate. the chocolate. but really, the cheese.
to prevent the latter feeling from coming too quickly, i decided to walk from the train station in rolles to my homestay in perroy today. the picture above was my view for…oh, more than half the walk.
yes, it was uphill. yes, it took 40+ minutes. yes, i sweat like a baby piglet. but also, YES, IT WAS WORTH IT.
i’m sure i looked like the noob tourist i am, stopping every few seconds to take another picture of…basically the same thing.
i think i’ll be walking this route a lot more in the future though. maybe the uphill will do my non-existent butt some good. and prevent me from putting on too much weight from the amount of chocolate and cheese i have been consuming, which is somewhat worrisome and slightly disgusting.
on a different note totally unrelated to my body fat, i started classes today. public health lecture was…boring. it was essentially a 2 hour rehash of introductory public health, which is okay! but hopefully it will become more interesting and engaging once the topics get more specific.
french on the other hand…wow. we sped through material like a little old lady on a harley. my brain was overfried.
everyone on the program (for the most part) has been really great. i was honestly terrified that i wouldn’t be able to make any friends, but don’t worry everyone! i have people to hang out with! and i think they somewhat like me! and it’s not completely awkward to make conversation! it’s great. granted, 남자들은 없지만…oh well. you can’t have everything. c’est la vie.
bonsoir et à demain!

그때의 난 모두 착각했어.
내가 찾던 섬이라 생각했어…
그때의 난 모두 착각했어.
날 기다린 섬이라 착각했어…
honestly so tired of your bullshit.
It was inevitable that my star of destiny should come into collision with hers and that I should spend years in prison and yet more years roaming the face of the earth chasing her phantom and being chased by it. The sensation that, in an instant outside the bounds of time, I have bedded the goddess of Death and gazed out upon Hell from the aperture of her eyes — it’s a feeling no man can imagine. The taste of that night stays on in my mouth, preventing me from savouring anything else.tayeb salih, season of migration to the north
i hate myself for letting you dictate my self-worth.
drowning my sorrows in food, what’s new
All I can say is that I’m really unsatisfied and upset with how my life is going at the moment.
