For those of you who didn’t know:

Weeks of strikes, protests and demonstrations have brought much of France to a standstill as workers, students and others voice their strong opposition to a government proposal to raise the age for a minimum pension from 60 to 62. A quarter of the nation’s gas stations were out of fuel, hundreds of flights were canceled, long lines formed at gas stations and train services in many regions were cut in half. Protesters blockaded Marseille’s airport, Lady Gaga canceled concerts in Paris and rioting youths attacked police in Lyon. 

The unpopular bill was passed by the French Senate on Friday evening.

Yesterday I received confirmation that I was accepted to my university’s study abroad program in Paris, France. I will be there from January 5 to February 3, 2011 studying fashion and food photography. We’ll be visiting every museum imaginable, going backstage at fashion shows, eating incredible food, and possibly making a day trip to Antwerp. We might even see a show at the Paris Opera. This will be my second trip to Paris and I could not be more excited! Now to start practicing my French again…

Hier, j’ai reçu la confirmation de mon université que j’été accepté à l’étranger programme à Paris, France. Je serai là du 5 janvier au 3 février 2011 pour étudier la photographie de mode et de la nourriture. Nous allons visiter tous les musées imaginables, aller dans les coulisses des défilés de mode, manger la nourriture incroyable, et peut-être faire un excursion à Anvers. Nous pourrions même assister un spectacle à l’Opéra de Paris. Ce sera mon deuxième voyage à Paris et je ne pouvais pas être plus heureux! Maintenant je dois pratiquer la langue française de nouveau. (Toutes mes excuses si cela été mauvaise; je n’ai pas étudié le français depuis presque trois ans. =P)
