Hey it’s Hannah here As you may know I haven’t been posting for the last week , time got the better of me . I was very busy due and forgot to do everything social media . Time is precious , even more precious  than money . What you spend your time on is your choice , after all it is your time What is time ?  a definition is not easy to come up with . There is no definition of time that is simple .  we deal with every day, it’s by definition  compact and robust definition of time has proved to beRead More →

Hey it’s Hannah here At school , there was quite a few clubs offered . The first year wasn’t really our choice but at the the same time it was . When we first met the headmisteress and the headmaster they asked us what we liked to do . We said we liked to play the flute / clarinet and sing etc . It didn’t come to our surprise to find out that we were put in orchestra and choir . It was terrifying , everyone was nice but i was so much out of my confort zone that i propably seemed like it iRead More →

Hey it’s Hannah here walking in to the school for the first time was like walking into a unknown world . The school looked so different to any school i had been to .

Hey it’s Hannah here Moving to France has been a journey that I will never forget . Before moving to France we had to sort out a lot of things . We had to sort out stuff like school , a place to live , where to move to etc.. We had to say goodbye to loads of people and sort out the stuff to bring with us . We were told about moving to France a few months before . I remember like it was yesterday saying goodbye to friends and family in England . The worst part of being told we were movingRead More →

Hey it’s Hannah moving to France has created problems I wasn’t prepared for . It caused a feeling of belonging nowhere . Let me explain : when I moved to France I didn’t and don’t feel like it fit in , I am not french and will never be like everyone in France . Things that make me feel like I don’t belong are : I don’t speak like everyone else ( I don’t have a french accent ) , I don’t have the same culture or traditions as everyone in France . I have found my self  to celebrating them because I find themRead More →

Hey it’s Hannah here When I came to france I had to learn french quickly . It wasn’t how i thought it would be . I thought it would come natually going to french school every day . It wasn’t the case.
