Expenses

Other sources of funding:
none
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits
Housing, primarily, is ridiculous... high prices for few commodities (consider yourself lucky if you have things like a stove, refridgerator, oven, etc.), and everyday living expenses such as clothing, food, and telephone are so much higher than in Sweden, where my home is.

Personal comments
Beware the EDF (electricity) bill! They estimate your consummation every time they bill you, so you usually get money back at the end of the year even though the sum you have to pay might seem extraordinnary at the time. Find the closest LIDL in your area, learn to love it and make it your best friend. While not as glamorous nor with a very extensive product range, you will save incredible amounts of money on your weekly food expenses (a 3 euro lasagne is big enough to feed one person for 2 days. i rest my case!)

I spent more money on rent in France as I was living in the city centre therefore it was more expensive. the nightlife in france was alot cheaper than in the UK as we did not have to pay for entry into clubs.
