My dance course is over, way too soon of course. In the morning, I had ballet class and in the afternoon I took an introduction to modern-jazz class, which I had never done before. The ballet was great, I really felt like I improved in head and arm placement. Modern-jazz was fun but I didn't like it as much, mainly because I felt silly and I didn't know what I was doing.

Yesterday when I was walking back to class after lunch I very nearly got caught in a thunder storm. I had to run into the school and when I opened the door to the dressing room, BABOOM ! Huge burst of thunder. I made quite an entrance you could say. 
Here are a couple shots of the roses in front of the school.

Sadly I wasn't able to take any photos of the lightning. Maybe next time.
Speaking of sad things, school starts up again on Monday. Wednesday and Thursday I have a prep-test for my junior high "diploma". In France you take three big tests at the end of 9th grade in history, math and French on everything you've done this year, called "Brevet des Collèges" or "DNB" ; so to prepare the school organizes what is called "Brevet Blanc". It's the same tests that we're going to do at the end of the year except they're shorter and they count like any other test. And I have to study for that, plus I'm going to take tests on Wednesday for a special English class I want to take next year in Lycée (or high school), and that's in Brest which is at about an hour and half from where I live. This week promises to be very tiring. So does this Sunday ! 
Have a nice week ! :)

  1. Beautiful photos! And I like your BABOOM story. Glad to hear you didn't get stuck in the storm.

  2. Love your photos. I, too, am glad you didn't get caught in the rain. We actually had rain and lightning here in New England yesterday too. Unfortunately, I did get caught in the rain, but I did enjoy the rainbows afterward.

    Keep up the blogging!

  3. Thanks, you have no idea how happy I am I didn't get rained on, but I'm sorry you did Lynda! :)
    And don't worry, I will :)
