Today's blog post is about being a functional lazy person, knowing oneself, a poignant French film, and how I live my life.

Hello everyone! How do you do?
I recently had a conversation with one of my favorite students, Mr. A.
He is special, think Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory. He is an annoying know-it-all, brilliant man, and me, being the female version of him; we have hooked horns on a couple of occasions.
You would think that those outbursts would have ended our professional relationship, instead, it has actually enhanced them because we respect each other as human beings.
We both know we are not perfect, make mistakes, yet at the end of the day, we are doing the very best we can. We have an odd, sweet, professional and refreshing relationship, it just works!
I find French people more civilized and refined than most vulgar Americans and Brits.
I believe it comes down to education, meaning manners.
You are SUPPOSE to communicate, you are SUPPOSE to figure out a solution to reach true success, together. But, alas.
Mr. A and I have learned from one another and our special relationship has assisted me in how to live my life and surprisingly, how to really deal with French people. (I'll get to this soon, just stay with me!)
So, how does this story relate to being a functional lazy person, well, I'll tell you -- the key to being a functional lazy person is organization.
Working with Mr. A has made it necessary for me to KNOW what I am teaching, to KNOW how to communicate, in such a way that is easy and understandable, and to KNOW myself, the good, the bad and the ugly.... and the beautiful!
Bonjour et Bienvenue!
Thank you for stopping by for a spell!
I am a 40-something year old American woman. Born in Texas, raised in Las Vegas!
Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
