I can’t believe I only wrote 1 post about Nice before I moved back to Paris. Not that I actually did much over there, as most of the things that were interesting to me fall into the category “to avoid during a pandemic”. Oh well.

It turns out that my blog was hacked back in October 2020, and with the eternal confinement, my move to a different city, my internship, my visa procedures… I honestly had no energy to figure out how to fix it. Having had fansites in the past, I’m pretty sure I not only knew how to do this before, but I must have done it multiple times. It still took some friendly help and random online articles to figure out what to do, though.

So! I’m back in Paris now, sharing a hotel room with a close friend, who I’m trying to rent an apartment with. The search has been exhausting, but I’m hoping it will be the last stressful chapter of 2021 for me. I have a work visa on the way, was hired as an employee of the company in which I did my internship, and have a flight ticket to visit my family in Brazil in June.

Anyway. I really want to write more, and I have some ideas for random and pretty much unrelated posts that I might work on soon.

I hope you all are doing well! If you’re still in a complicated covid-19 zone, please stay safe. ❤

After nearly 2 months staying in airbnbs, I am finally settling in a place where I’ll be able to stay longer! I moved out of Paris and rented a small apartment in Nice, in the south of France. I had been here once before, for a couple of days, and thought the city was so pretty. That was literally my only criteria, as all I really wanted was to get out of Paris and not have to spend an arm and a leg for a lousy room in someone’s basement.

I did, however, also get covid-19 as I was moving, which wasn’t fun. It could have been much worse, though… I had headaches and spent 4-5 days in the bathroom, basically. It was one uncomfortable week and then it was over. The catch, however, is that as soon as it was over I fell off the stairs, so I am now nursing a hurt foot. I am unsure of how bad it is, but I can stand on it and move a little, so it can’t be too horrible. We’ll see.

I have finally finished my thesis! I don’t even wanna know what the grade will be at this point… and I don’t feel relieved yet, I don’t think the fact that my Masters is pretty much over has synched in yet. It might have something to do with the million other things I have going on at the moment (can’t reschedule my appointment to pick up my student visa extension because it is literally impossible to reach a Parisian prefecture by phone, email or facebook, can’t figure out what the hell is wrong with my health insurance, inherited a bug problem from the previous tenant of this apartment, decided to adopt a cat…).
