Mood Music

I love being able to share music between friends; it’s such a good way to discover new artists. A friend of mine introduced me Zaz a couple days ago and it has been playing nonstop. Even if you don’t speak French, you can still fall in love with the jazzy beats. If you would like to listen to the full album for free, check out their music and many more on Spotify.

Zaz – “Je Veux”

Lyrics Translation: Je Veux –  I Want

Give me a suite at the Ritz hotel, I don’t want that
Chanel’s jewellery, I don’t want that
Give me a limo, what would I do with it?
Offer me staff, what would I do with it?
A mansion in Neufchatel, it’s not for me
Offer me the Eiffel tower, what would I do with it?

I want love, joy, good spirit
It’s not your money that will make me happy
I want to die with a hand on my heart
Let’s go together, let’s discover my freedom,
Forget all your prejudice, welcome to my reality

I’m fed up with your good manners, it’s too much for me
I eat with my hands, I’m like that
I speak loud and I’m direct, sorry
Let’s end the hypocrisy, I’m out of it
I’m tired of double-talks
Look at me, I’m not even mad at you, I’m just like that

I want love, joy, good spirit
It’s not your money that will make me happy
I want to die with a hand on my heart
Let’s go together, let’s discover my freedom,
Forget all your prejudice, welcome to my reality

Testing Our Comprehension

Studying abroad in Spain this September at ICADE has been deemed an upcoming challenge for me and my classmates. Nine courses in the Spanish language five days a week is not going to be an easy task for any of us. But there might be a slight curve ball; eight of the nine courses are business courses while the ninth is said to be a language course.

We filled out our language request forms yesterday claiming which third language we would like to learn in Spanish. Yes, we are learning another language in Spanish. Our choices include the following: French, Italian, German, and Chinese. I am leaning towards Italian, but any recommendations are welcomed. This might be the stepping stones to being trilingual in the future. We will have to see how well this fall turns out.
