so wait lucien came by tonight as a surprise and it was literally the cutest thing ever
i was watching the phantom of the opera with becca and andrew (which was also lovely, i love our movie nights) and out of the blue he texted me asking how my sunday was going and i was like good thanks and then he sent me a picture of him in front of bj and was like “is this your dorm??”
and i sort of freaked out and obviously texted him back and he found my actual dorm eventually and i went out and found him and we exchanged what was literally the best hug i’ve had in such a long time
so i brought him up and showed him around and we chatted for a bit and then because lucien has bad timing i had to go to house council and while i was in there he had to leave because apparently the decision to visit me was so spontaneous that his parents did not know where he was and wanted him home lol
but he’s coming back to visit for real later this week and i’m super excited
also i had a really really nice time with becca and andrew tonight, they’re so lovely and i love talking to them and i love our movie nights and it’s just been a good evening all around
No, it’s to express the cause by defining something by what it’s not. It’s useful when the cause isn’t as obvious as people would think. For example:
J’adore Nicki Minaj, non pas qu’elle soit une chanteuse extraordinaire, mais son discours sur les femmes est vraiment juste.
I love Nicki Minaj, not that she’s an amazing singer, but her point of view on women is really accurate.
Il a loupé ses examens, non pas qu’il n’ait pas assez révisé, mais il a été discriminé à cause de son nom étranger.
He failed his tests, not that he didn’t work enough, but he has been discriminated because of his foreign name.
Tip: It’s ALWAYS followed by subjunctive.
things that have made me happy recently
do you ever just feel like an idiot
