Réallouer (ray-al-oo-ay) means “to reallocate.” This summer, the program I normally work at in Paris reallocated me to St Andrews to start a brand new program. It wasn’t my first choice, but, since it was a promotion to Director, I signed up. So far, and with only a few days to go, it’s been a great experience. Then, the person who was scheduled to be the Director of Paris pulled out at the last moment. My bosses scrambled to find a replacement at the eleventh hour – and came up with nothing. Then they devised a clever plan. The Director I first started with was available to cover the first two weeks, then my program in St Andrews will conclude, and I will be reallocated to Paris for the final three weeks. So now, I get to be the Director of the Paris program and I’ve been promised first pick of St Andrews or Paris for next year. As much as I have truly enjoyed St Andrews, my heart belongs to Paris, now and forever.
