Life and random 'Thoughts' on Saturday
Why does it always rain on a Saturday?? and why is it always when I am out and about in Paris?? one of the strange phenomena I'd say.
After spending an unforgettable days with my uncles in Paris (photos will be updated soon), I am back to being the poor student in Paris! I have to say the experience is quite liberating...
I met with one of my uncle's HR assistant in George V after a trip to Hediard just yesterday and she was explaining about the downturn effect of the economy. If a customer starts limiting themselves to indulgences and the many things of everyday necessities, then sooner or later it will become a habit and then it will be a part of their lives. One will live with less things and surrounds itself with only a few basic pieces. Now, I am not inclining that One should do that in time of crisis but as I live my life in Paris each day, supporting myself with the money I've saved last year and of course my parents are a call away if I need more money... I feel that it is a valuable lesson to stop spending for awhile and enjoy free things in life. Being in Paris helps a lot I guess...but to know that I can live my life as I am living now, and taking each day as it is...well that is invaluable.
and to quote from my uncle... "Well 20 years ago...while I was in Paris for three months...I did survived with only 4euros a day!" (the latter a quote I will one day say to my own family and friends...)
