France – Journal Entry 12.18.2000

 The french trip has finally come to an end.  I now sit in Charles DeGulle Airport waiting for my flight.  I wanted to wait until I was on the plane to write but I’ve become tired of reading the paper and want to listen to my CD’s.  I can’t believe the day has finally come to go home.  It was a wonderful trip and I’m glad to have learned French.  I only wish I could have studied in a place other than Besançon although I did enjoy CLA.  So now I sit in the “satellite” station at the airport and it is cold and not very enjoyable.  The plane leaves in only an hour and a half though so I don’t have to wait much longer. 

   I actually left Besançon over a week ago to meet my sister in Paris and then we went to London. We went around and saw all the touristy things but she seemed rather melancholy the whole time.  I’m not so sure she had a good time here.  I will be glad to leave here soon. 

  So I can’t believe I am going home today. It is going to be like a dream when we finally get there.  I can’t believe I’ve been here for so long already.  It was time to go though because Besançon had become tiring.  It was time for the chapter to end and another chapter to begin.  I must continue with my life and finish my studies.  Only then can I accomplish what I set out to do. 

   I’m glad my computer still works, I put it though the scanner here at the airport.  Twice.   I used to be afraid that it wouldn’t work of one did that but no problem.
