Free Taxi in Paris! Or at least 20 euros free!

I thought about creating a life-hack post about surviving in Paris..and the first one is how to get a free taxi in Paris! It’s probably temporary, but right now, you can download this APP on your phone. It’s called UBER and all you have to do is use a promotion code:

  • Download it
  • Create an account (here it is required to add your email, phonenumber and bankcard number too but it won’t be debited don’t worry)
  • And use v3o91 as a promotion code to get your account loaded with 20 Euros

This is an awesome way to get a free taxi home from a party in Paris…the taximeter is not that much higher than normal using this application and since 20 euros gets you quite far in Paris it hasn’t been a problem at all ^^

So easy and nice!

A student life hack in Paris, you’re welcome! (And thank you “Cocotte Min(e)’ute” for the awesome tip!

A magic trick

Just goofing around outside an Alice in Wonderland themed party. Haha.
The students of Ecole des Mines have an amazing university spirit and they love to party and sing their songs. At the end of this one they had a huge water fight. The day after, you find them ready for the 8.30 AM class like the true engineering students they are, and like last night never happened.

Sooo I need to learn French

Like now now now! Why is it so hard? It feels like I improved a lot in the beginning but now I’m just standing still, and at an inadequate level if I may say so myself! I need to get better at French and I need to get better faaast because I’m having trouble keeping up with the exercises and having casual conversations is extremely tiring…like my head hurts and I’m tired all the time from searching for words and trying to understand what’s going on. I am going to start trying to read french newspapers in my school and practice more…watch french movies and like I don’t knooow do french things!!!

That is if I don’t follow through on the April fools day joke I posted on Facebook about being sick of France and going back home….some of my sweet friends believed it and were super confused! hahaha I was like helloooo do you even read my blog? I guess you don’t but that’s okaaay, it ain’t no thiing, it’s a hairflip ( Holla Nadine, at least you read it!)! My point is that France is good,  so far I love every corner of it, and I can’t wait until Easter vac to start planning trips all over this country ^^

This week is extra good because during campaign week my school is awesome with free food (A.k.a crêpes and gauffres) all the time and parties every night. Tonight I’m staying in though, cause I’m tired from doing marathon sightseeing all weekend and having been out a few nights in a row ( I’m getting old, I know, I’ve been looking forward getting home to watch my quiet and funny series for a few weeks now)
