I studied abroad in Lacoste, France for three months. The weather was cold, the village was deserted except for the sprinkle of SCAD students. It was here that I met some of my closest friends and colleagues. The close encounters and lack of entertainment forced all of us to create our own fun, which turned out to be long nights in the lab singing at the top of our lungs (sorry Cedric). I do not believe I will ever know the sweet bliss of eating croissants with honey and brie for breakfast, lunch, and dinner ever again. It’s probably for the best.
