According to Urban Dictionary

Boheme - Carefree lifestyle unbounded by convention.

Bohemian - Movement of artist and poets in late 19th century France, especially in Paris. Bohemians believed in living outside of the bourgeois (conventional, middle class) mainstream culture. Bohemians were against the Salon (the institution that controlled the literary and art market in France until the turn of the 20th century)and believed that art and literature should be radical. They often gathered in "cafes" and drank absinthe. Many Bohemians were politically radical, being either anarchists or members of the Commune de Paris during the Franco-Prussian war. The Bohemian movement died out at the turn of the century but had a large influence on later movements such as surrealism, the beat generation, and punk rock.
Toulouse - Lautrec depicted the romanticized life of many Bohemians, although the reality of the life-style was often very difficult and tragic.

An apartment finally and a trip to Italy.

Yay I finally have an apartment thanks to mum for finding it on the Net. I saw it today and by Paris standards it is amazing. Ok so there is no washing machine, dryer, bathtub, oven or much cupboard space but as I said by Paris standards it is amazing. There is a huge couch and above the couch is a mezzanine sleeping level and it has a toilet and shower and little kitchen. It is on the ground floor so no climbing a million stairs with bags of shopping. So it is great but i can't move in until the 21st of november at the earliest. So I have two weeks to fill, what better way to fill a spare two weeks than a trip to Italy Land of great food and beautiful Art I leave in the morning and will keep you all posted.
