um, how the fuck are you?
ok, not really a good question, so here are a few of the more answerable nature.
Dorms or homestay?
If dorms: any roommates/floormates, are they cool, are they local, etc?
If Homestay: Is your host "mum' (i'm guessing thats what they'd call them) cool? Any siblings?
So far which City is more exciting, NYC or London? Obviously i realize you haven't had much to decide slash it may be one of those things that you never decide.
I am doing swell, just getting settled into london, figuring out which classes I’ll be taking and trying to figure out how to organize my time while I’m here.
I’m staying in the international dorms at my school, which has been great most of the time, although I wish I knew more Brits. The dorms are pretty comfy, singles with their own bathrooms and a shared kitchen between 6 of us living in this flat.
So far London is coming out on top. We’ll see once I get back into the grind of school, but this city is absolutely amazing. I don’t quite live in the most exciting part of town, but I’m really loving everywhere I’ve been in the city.
A French soccer team won’t let one of its veteran players, Yoann Lemaire, back on the team after he came out of the closet and took a sabbatical. It appears what team you play for really matters.
In 2009, Lemaire took a sabbatical from the amateur club FC Chooz after teammates made homophobic comments in front of television cameras. Now Lemaire’s looking to return to the team, but management has turned him away, apparently because of his orientation and the “trouble” it causes. (Lemaire says that only two of the 60 players on the team have an issue with his sexuality.) Obviously, the team’s refusal to allow Lemaire to return has nothing to do with his talent. His ball handling skills must be top notch by now.
