2 Weeks Notice

Countdown to departure: 14 days

Since I returned from Texas last night, I figured it was about time to update my blog! A few things have happened since my last post.

On the 10th I went to the French Embassy in D.C. to get my visa. The Consulate for my region is in the Embassy, so that was cool. I haven't gotten my visa confirmed yet, but it seemed to go smoothly! I hope it worked!

On the 11th I officially un-enrolled from school. Does this make me a drop-out? I hope not, haha!

On the 13th Riho arrived and on the 15th Vici came! They're both great, and I'm sad I wont get to spend the year with them. Although, I'm insanely excited to meet my own host family now!!

Today, we took Riho and Vici to sign up for classes . They are now both officially students at Towson High School!

Coming up are a smattering of going away/welcoming festivities, and then I head to the beach for a few days!

I talked to my host family, and I will be taking math, French, history/geography, biology, physics/chemistry, gym, music, economics, and (wait for it) ENGLISH!! It should be kind of funny to see how French kids learn English!

Two weeks to go! I'll let you know if anything happens!


**UPDATE- 8/22/09**
I got a letter from the French Embassy saying my visa had been approved! Phew....

**UPDATE- 8/27/09**
I went to the consulate again today, and actually got my visa!! With exactly a week until my flight leaves, the day is nearly here!!
