Here's the deal:
Last year I applied to be part of an AFS International exchange program, and I got accepted!! AFS (American Field Service) is an organization that connects students from all over the world through semester, year, and summer exchange programs (I'm doing a year program). I will be living somewhere in France with a host family, going to a French school, and learning the French language and culture through total immersion. I will also be oceans away from everybody at home, which brings me to this blog.
Since this is such a cool experience, and since I want everybody in the states to experience it with me, I'm starting a blog! It will be my way of sharing details of my adventures with you all. I'll post updates on the status of my program, the status of my day-to-day life, and the status of my sanity. Check back for developments soon.
