So as far as the department goes, I can pretty much do whatever I want concerning an internship abroad. And the IFE program is pretty perfect–internship, research component, final report. But it costs 6500 euros. Which is like, twice my UT tuition. And there doesn’t seem to be much out there in terms of grants for doing educational research abroad like that (as in, by someone who’s already lived in France, and wants to do it in one semester). The advisor did suggest looking for an internship on my own given that I’ve lived in France and I have sort of a network. But all of the people I know there work in the public school system and I’m not interested in interning in the public system because, umm, I already basically did that. So I dunno. I mean, maybe I’ll just graduate in December 09 and shit around for the spring. That sounds productive. I mean, fuck it.
