Until grade 9 I excelled at and enjoyed learning French. It wasn’t until grade 10 when the other kids decided that learning French wasn’t cool that I decided to give it up (though the geek in me won out and I studied Latin for two years instead). Every time I crack open an issue of Vogue Paris, visit Montreal or hear the bf speak en français with my french-speaking friends I wish that I had stuck with it.

The sixth item on my 12 Days of Christmas Countdown Extravaganza wish list is French lessons.
And now that Carine Roitfeld has stepped down as editor-in-chief there’s a job opening at Vogue Paris. Who knows? Weirder things have happened ;).
