Bonjour! Je m'appelle Sophie Amélie Moreau, et je suis une poupée d'une fille américaine. J'ai 12 ans, et j'aime voyager à l'autres pays, et j'aime écrirer quelques choses dans mon blog. Alors, comprenez-vous?
Oops, I forgot that most of you aren't fluent in French. My teacher isn't even fluent, as she's always telling me, "Slow down, Sophie, repeat yourself calmly and rationally." Anyway, my name is Sophie Amélie Moreau (but you can just call me 'Sophie,' 'Soph,' or even 'Figchen,' the nickname of Catherine the Great when she was still referred to as Sophie). I am an 12-year-old American Girl doll #25, but to be honest with you, I'm not all that American. I was born on August 9th, twelve years ago, in Paris, France to Jean-Luc Moreau and Sylvie Kowalsky. Et après dix mois passed, my younger sister, Juliette Adrienne Moreau, followed me into this grand world. That's right - we are exactly ten months apart! We're practically twins!
But, anyway, I decided that I'd had enough French schooling for now and proceeded to enroll myself into Fair Hollow School for Girls, an elite girls' school particularly for girls with an interest in the fine and/or performing arts. So, with a few bittersweet tears, I headed off to America, trunk in tow. It was très difficile, very difficult, at first, trying to fit in to a place that was so unlike home, but once I get the hang of things, I'm not at all shy. Now that I've taken part in classes, solved a few mysteries, traveled a bit, and written loads of letters to ma famille, I feel like I'm truly an essential part of Fair Hollow School for Girls (or FHSG, as we call it).
I'm starting this blog not as the school assignment it's meant to be, but as a way to record my feelings throughout daily life here at FHSG and, hopefully, to preserve pictures of any travel adventures that I embark on. I'd also like to keep this blog up for longer than it takes to fulfill my grade. You may remember that some of my classmates, Lindsey and Anya, had blogs as part of school assignments, but they decided not to keep theirs up. I'm determined to be different. I may not post every day, but I do think it's essential to keep up my journaling, even if only as a way to send pictures back home.
If you're reading this (and you're a fellow doll like me), feel free to link my journal to yours, and we can correspond back and forth--I love new friends!
