Just Like in the Movies…

After a whole week of celebrations – wedding anniversary, birthday, christening (yes and I’m the lucky godmother!! :D), etc… it’s finally time for me to rest…

Um wait, what?

Rest? haha still dreaming.

Yesterday I went to my first Alliance Française course for the year – it’s a course I take every year on French and especially in Literature. At the year end which is in July in this system, I have to take part in exams of course.

But this year is different because I’m shifting. I’m going a class higher, and because in my village they don’t have teachers available at that higher stage, I have to move out to town. So from now on, every Monday and possibly Tuesday, I have to travel to town to attend the classes. It’ll be tiring especially when school will start again, but well I have no other choice.

Anyway, what I wanted to tell you today is that yesterday, my first course was… um interesting.

And just like in the movies…

I felt so lonely.

A column of stairs appeared before me as I entered the clean, modern building. Some young teens were waiting on the porch, amybe waiting for their parents to pick them up. I went upstairs, slowly, but steadily.

Thump, thump, thump.

My tennis black shoes echoed as they hit the polished tiled floor. I went into a familiar library – I borrowed french books from there – and asked the attendant where was the class for les premières… He motioned to the next door, just in front of him. I entered reluctantly, stunned to see about a dozen of students present. They all already knew each other as they were together last year and maybe the years before. As I took a random place in the middle, I guess they all stared at me. I did not speak and only watched around.  Not a bad room 🙂 white everywhere… abundance of chairs and tables, whiteboard… oh the usual.

I was the newbie, the weirdo. 😛

As I watched more students coming in, shaking hands with the others, chatting… I had the impression that I was in a movie, where the protagonist always remains alone on her/his first day at school… I was suddenly eager to begin the course, though the teacher was not present yet. I felt lonely and uneasy, but also fascinated and excited…

I’m a weirdo, I told you so. xD

Anyway the magic of just like in a movie got shattered as a friend of mine unexpectedly came into the room. I was so glad! I went to sit beside her and we began to talk. She was a newbie too lol! Such a coincidence!

So finally I was not in a movie anymore. I had company. I was a normal girl attending AF courses… 😛 disappointed? maybe… I like movies… but I’m relieved as well, as I’m going back today! 😛

Our teacher is very kind and explains very well! 🙂 Like her a lot!! She knows how to capture our attention and make us at ease.

Well I hope I’ll make friends with the others too… as time will pass…

Anyway, see ya! Gotta go!

Wish me good luck for today!

An Evil Nymph.

  1. Big bouquets of wonderful lucky thoughts growing your way as I type, Crazy Chick. 🙂 Love the way you describe things, Daphnee. My heart panged at “I felt so lonely” but was glad your movie had such a happy ending!

  2. Okay, this is going to sound dreadfully stodgy but; you’re just 16? Seiously? You have this delightful old soul quality when expressing yourself. If all people, not just teens put as much thought and honesty in their own expressions what a lovely world this could be.
    Weirdo? I think not. I think you just have the courage to be authentic.
    Thanks so much for sharing these bits about you and your life.
