My name is Mathieu. I am 24 years old. . I live in France, in the north more precisely, where the winters are cold and the summers are less cold.
My mother tongue is French, so it may happen (and it will) that you find some grammar mistakes in my texts, but I do my best to avoid them.
I love reading and writing, photography, and I love talking to people. I also like to travel. Another one of my passions is coffee, and when I travel, I always try to find the best independent café. In recent years, I have been living in England where I worked as a receptionist and then a French language assistant, as well as in Ireland, where I spent a year as an Erasmus, in University College Dublin.
I’m currently studying English literature, history and linguistics as part of a course which will lead me, hopefully, to being an English teacher (update : I am now an English teacher in a high school). I also study phonetics, more precisely Irish phonology.
There’s not much left to say about me, so I’m leaving you with one of my favourite poems, as well as my posts to read.
Par les soirs bleus d’été, j’irai dans les sentiers,
Picoté par les blés, fouler l’herbe menue :
Rêveur, j’en sentirai la fraîcheur à mes pieds.
Je laisserai le vent baigner ma tête nue.
Je ne parlerai pas, je ne penserai rien :
Mais l’amour infini me montera dans l’âme,
Et j’irai loin, bien loin, comme un bohémien,
Par la Nature, – heureux comme avec une femme.
