Make it Happen Monday #10: Birthday Week

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Bonjour, mes amis!

This week is (hopefully) going to be one hell of an awesome week, because it is also my birthday week. Just kidding, I don't need a whole week for my birthday, but it is tomorrow which is fairly exciting. 

Last week, I really liked having a Make it Happen Monday/Weekly Wishes post in France, and you were all so tremendously supportive which was very nice. So this week, I have more goals to try and accomplish!

Last Week's Wishes: 
1. Make an Editorial Calendar for September.
Kinda.... sorta... I have a general idea about what days I want to post, and a few ideas for next week's posts on this blog, but I need to write it all down. 

2. Finish all my homework!
Yep. Even my grammar homework.

3. Find a backpack.
Also yep, although it's a bit small, so we'll see how it goes. 

4. Visit the Musée de Normandie and the Musée des Beaux-Arts, and plan a visit to Monet's House.
I was going to go on Saturday, but I ended up going to Ouistreham and the beach instead. Great decision. Tomorrow, I have break from class from 11:45 until 2:30, and the museums are really close to the University so maybe I'll go over my break. 

5. Go back to the adorable café/teahouse/book heaven and remember the name of it. 
Done and done. I went and had some Sakura tea (which was heavenly) and a red fruits/apple tart (also heavenly). The name of the bookstore/café is Memoranda! Easy to remember. It's basically one of my favorite places here in Caen. 

This Week's Wishes:
1. Plan a trip to Rouen. 
My friends and I have decided that we definitely want to take a trip to Rouen, which is also in Normandy. It is where Joan of Arc was famously tried for witchcraft and burned at the stake. We just have to decide on a date, book our train tickets, find a hostel, and make it happen!

2. Write a post about the Mémorial de Caen. 
I may have told you all last week, but I visited the Mémorial de Caen, which is a large, beautiful museum and memorial for WWII in Caen. It was amazing, and I really want to write about it and share it with you all, but every time I sit down to write about it, the post just doesn't feel right. I really want the caliber of the post to match the caliber of the museum.  

3. Have a picnic by the Château. 
I think it's going to start getting cold soon, which I'm kind of excited about, actually. But before it gets cold, I just want to have a mini-picnic by the Château with some nutella, crepes, or something like that. 

4. Have an awesome birthday.
'Nuff said.

5. Re-adjust my Academic goals for this semester.
Last week, I wrote about my goals for this semester in terms of my academics. After the first week of classes, I think I can re-adjust some of my goals and make them more realistic in some cases, and more challenging in others. 

What do you need to do this week? As always, leave a message in the comments or drop a line by email!
