Flash mobs and other great ideas.

Living in France and especially Paris means that you are almost 100% depending on the metro system which usually comes quite often OR, especially when you're in a rush, after an hour. Anyway, being a constant "rider" my trustworthy friend the iPhone, functioning as iPod, gives me a bunch of stupid ideas. While I'm listening to a really upbeat song and I happen to be standing almost at the edge of the curb with everyone behind me I always imagine myself as being the first to start a flash mob.. That I'm just waiting for the right moment to start my routine an everyone will follow ending in an amazing movie moment.

Actually I had a moment like this, the last evening I was in Switzerland, almost all of the school went out to the club, which on a Thursday evening was more than empty, all the club to ourselves. At one of the events most of us learnt a small routine to "Danza kuduro" and not everyone was dancing...about 3 people started and soon more as more joined it was so much fun to see the faces of the few people who weren't from our school who looked confused.

I don't remember if I actually ever wrote or spoke about this I only remember always wanting to talk about it when I first lived in Paris last year. I really liked the "dance of the sugarplum fairy" back then and you can't believe how much fun it is to listen to it while doing people watching!! Especially during rainy weather it looks as if people are dancing to it and jumping and doing silly walks it's just a lot of fun. I highly recommend trying it :) especially in autumn !

Most of the time I'm listening to comedians on the metro, long programmes which are funny to listen to and make me look like a nutter while I laugh alone. 
But in Paris...everyone's a bit mental.

Reception du Magic Circus, c'est Giulia bonjouuur !

Hello My Lovelies,

Alright here we go, first blog post on my new job !
I must admit that at first I felt majorly lost, everyone talking in French to me and thinking I was stupid since I understood quite well but never said more than "oui". But now 4 days later I'm getting the hang of it, the girl who is training me did her internship there too, she's quite cool and funny but sadly leaving in a few days but the crew at the reception is quite cool, I like the people I work with and French is getting easier everyday :) check-ins, arrivals, city taxes, group keys and phone calls are not a problem anymore. Although the biggest problem is always the phone, especially if the person is speaking French, in that case most of the time I call someone to take it for me cause people mumble and I'm having my troubles even with understanding properly spoken french haha. 

What I love the most is when I'm sitting at the concierge table (thing I shouldn't technically do) and people come to ask informations about he park, Paris an surrounding areas :) I like that cause I can help and I know insider things about Disneyland :) Yesterday evening a little boy came to me while I was at that table and gave me sweets :) adorable !! I really like the Italian guests, they trust me and prefer to talk to me over others who aren't trainees only cause I can talk properly to them :) there's one girl, I think she left now, who every time she came back in the evening shouted "bonsoooooooir giulia" super sweet :) but it's not all roses and flowers (Italian idiom translated to English) sometimes we do have rubbish and rude guests who blame you for things that are absolutely not in our control, but well if it was only nice people the day would be boring and as a matter of fact the days when we're the busiest with horrible guests are those that just fly by :) 

Now I have the weekend off and next week I'm working everyday from 3pm it's quite alright it's calmer than working in the morning although I don't like that I lose almost all of the day but that's my fault since I'm not a morning person otherwise I could do quite a few things before heading off to work.

Well here that was the first summary of the first days at work :) I hope this will be helpful for myself for when I have ti write my report about the internship for uni :)

Anyway goodbye my lovelies ! If you happen to be in Disneyland anytime soon don't forget to drop by and say hi :)

Graduating: Take 1 !

Hello My Lovelies,

Here I am, writing from my little shared flat in Paris.
Me and Nefeli, volunteering. 
But more about that in another post :)

So 2 days ago I graduated from first year !!!
Can I give you a programme Sir/Madam ?
It was such an amazing experience, so me and Nefeli volunteered to help out during the preparation, tbh they could have done it without us but whatever it felt nice and I was there 2-3 hours before the actual thing started.
We placed brochures on tables and I had the oh so important job of closing the door after all the lecturers did their entrance.

Later on we took some photos outside, I took photos with people I almost never talk to, but in the end (literally) we all love each other hehe.

The entrance was so major awkward and depressing, a very slow asian-y song started playing that just makes you want to cry, I will try to find it and post it. 
After all the lecturers entered, I had to close the friggin door and walk to my place, this was major awkward because "Why the hell is a student walking in, to the music, behind all the lecturers ?" hahaha ah well I had my moment. 
None of them are my classmates.
Then everything was pretty quick, since I was first year and we were only 5 in our class to have passed the year we went on stage got our piece of paper and went back to enjoy the show. Everyone got their pieces of paper (I don't call them diplomas cause one of the years is called Diploma) the BA students got their special red and blue throws on and then came the "Award ceremony" there are a few special awards in our school, Best student in each year, most committed to help students, best in 4 semesters, highest amount of Personal Attitude marks and best newcomer.
Poledancer with a Certificate ;)

While best newcomer was being described I told my friend next to me that no one of our class suits that and I was really wondering who might get it.. seconds later... my name ! I felt like crying. I almost did, I swear I never have been this happy. 
It's an award for the most committed to the principles of hospitality and tourism and the most promising in this industry :) I'm so super happy !!

They're so sweet even though I hardly know them :)
Anyway afterwards more photos outside, I really wish my parents came, because next year i'm sure not to get an award haha.
Then we moved to the "after party" in a little place with a stage, some random guy then came up to me to ask if I wanted to help give out the medals for sports day, and when I say I do all sorts of sh** at this school, I really mean it. I didn't even wake up for sports day but sure, shake hands with the winners and give out the medals and trophies ;) 

In the night we all went out for a last club night together, the club literally ONLY had people from my school :) It was a lot of fun, I turn really stupid when tipsy, I hugged everyone like I actually cared haha but it was nice to say goodbye. Sadly I didn't get to say goodbye to some people I would have really liked to greet, but well.. sh** happens. 
I already miss the school and the people. I really hope to stay in touch with some of my closest friends there :) Aside from Franzi and Nefeli, because I'm sure we will stay friends :D

Anyway now I'm here to start a new adventure. Internship months in Paris, France.


PS: credit for the photos goes to Chris.
