Saturday’s here as well the first day of the Twenty in Paris sale- woohoo! This weekend I am mixing work and pleasure. I have lots to work for Twenty in Paris like an up coming post for GoAbroad.com- I can’t release much about it but I can tell you that it is about a very important day in French history, more posts for this blog, editing the 2nd installment of the How to Pack for Studying Abroad YouTube Series and a new tumblr campaign that will offer fun and useful French language/culture tips as well as answer your study abroad questions. What am I doing for pleasure is scrapbooking! It is a lot of work but it’s very enjoyable and relaxing (to me at least). Studying abroad is what actually got me hooked on scrapbooking. There were so many unique things like the metro passes, school IDs and immigration papers that were too neat to throw away so I decided that when I returned home I would scrapbook them and I’ve been doing it ever since. Don’t throw away any of the things you come across while studying abroad- even if you don’t become an avid scrapbooker, just putting them in a folder or binder is good enough. You never know when you’ll want to do a walk down memory lane and look at the “artifacts” from the time you were Twenty [years old] in Paris.
