My landlord now wants the rent to be made on the 1st day of each month instead of on the 3rd week. She sent me the text message at 10pm and it's February 28. 🙄

Now that it is more sunny ☀️ I'll be walking more and more from my place to Paris and just remembering to make the most of my time here! Just going around looking at apartments in Berlin for mid this year...

Had a very nice walk out to a market nearby. Had a slice of handmade pizza with chevre cheese and a cannoli, again with chevre cheese! Little moments of good food with some 🇮🇹 and 🇫🇷

Ah one less daily stress source in my life with this. Now I just need to address the other daily stress source...

Some good news this week - it turns out the landlord wants to keep the bedroom free for when she visits Paris.

Decided not to go to this rooftop terrace event in the afternoon, have this fear that the 3 hour event is all in French, it takes me about two hours to and from so that's 5 hours wasted.

What do French women do in their spare time when they hire all these au pairs/nannies? One would think that France has great benefits for mothers/those on maternity leave so less need to have two income households.

Definitely a bad day, starting with the flatmate not cleaning the shower with clogged pipes. And now I had to go to the pharmacy to grab a couple of things and to top it off, I realized that I have cuts on my fingers and I'm not sure why this is the case...

Interesting differences on a French migrant to Australia businessinsider.com.au/life-in (the title refers to him as an 'expat' but considering how he's been living in Australia for 7 years and just applied to become a citizen....)

@superruserr oh no go to the sun in the park and lay on a bench and feed the doves do not be feary

This might be the third time I need to see a doctor here in Paris. Which is crazy, considering how I saw a doctor 0 times in 1.5 years.

And it's not OK to have detail like "I have my partner living with me half the time" actually being left out of a lease agreement. 2 nights seem to be norm, but staying over 4 nights per week is OT. Not to mention that has not really contributed to the flat at all ie not washed the dishes that they leave out, not taken out the trash, says she does not have to clean as a visitor, and so on. It's just downright uncomfortable to have to confront, so I stay inside a lot...

Quiet happy that this is the second last weekend with the flatmate and his gf before they both move out. I won't miss feeling like being a caretaker/maid for this couple (different expectations with being apartment being clean, lack of pitching in with duties etc). Also not having to overhear the fights and not feeling like a complete third wheel.

Last weekend is actually their last. Either that or will start moving out. I actually want to take a trip out to Rouen, but I need my hours :/

@superruserr Oui déjà une promenade avec mes enfants ... et surement une deuxième après le goûter !

Je suis allée me ​​promener dans Bastille et j'ai achetée gateau le noisette, fromage, et manger de asiatique. 🌏 🧀 🍰 🇫🇷

@hcs En France, on appelle cela la médaille du travail.

@Phigger @superruserr It's not permeated very large parts of the population I'd say :) It even has a wikipedia page: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verlan
