In order to get to know each other a little better, last weekend, the old, current, and new lecteurs formed a team for the #ColorMeRad “Color Run” in Valenciennes (take note — COLOR not COLOUR). This event has really taken off in the United States, and it was a fun thing to do with everyone I work with here in France.

That night, we had our crémaillière, aka our housewarming party, because after 3.5 weeks, I finally moved into my new place! It was fun to have everyone around, and it definitely helped set a positive vibe for the year.
I’ve officially been in Valenciennes as a lectrice for one month already. So far, despite the papers mishap, things seem to be going well, and I am really happy to be back.
