Hello LJ! For those of you not on Facebook: yes I am still alive, yes I still have internet. Life has been hectic but I have good news!

I only have one more week of school left and then I will be done my first year in the translation program! I have only two more assignments to hand in; both are for my History of the French Language class and so I am now breathingeatingsleeping French history, and hovering between complete disgust and utter fascination for the subject. I have developed a fantasy of studying ancient French - I studied an old French poem, La Chanson de Roland, that is somewhat reminescent of the Arthurian legend, and now I dream of doing a comparative study between the two. Also I sometimes dream of becoming the first intelligible/interesting history professor, but then I remind myself that I Do Not Like Teaching.

More excitingly: Rob has FINALLY landed a job in Ottawa, and is moving back! In three weeks!! For good!!! I have been floating on a cloud since we got the news. I cannot say how relieved I am, I was starting to doubt that we would ever live together like a normal married couple. But we are finally moving forward. We are even thinking of saving up this summer and buying a house, although we only just started discussing that possibility. Still: FINALLY.

I promise an art-spam when I finish school, because I have so many projects bottled up in my brain. Including one about La Chanson de Roland - I said I was breathingeatingsleeping French history!

This summer is looking to be a good one.

La Chanson de Roland is a great epic poem. Though I've only read English translations.

Congrats to you and Rob!! I'm so happy for you both!

Thanks!

I tried to find a full, modern French version of the text but I could only find the ancient French one... Do you have a copy of the English?
