Sooo it's been a while since I've taken the time to write anything down on here! I'm still so extremely excited. Tomorrow is my last day of school here in America, and then I have to wait ALL summer until I leave.
Let me fill you in on the past few months...
I had my pre-departure orientation. That was a VERY long 6 hours. There were two other girls there that were going to Germany. It was kind of boring. THEN we got to meet the kids in our area that are here from different countries. I got to meet 3 students from Italy and they filled me in on a LOT of stuff!
We still keep in touch on facebook, and they're really great for when I need someone to test my italian on!
Now in other news... Earlier this week I got my host family info!!!! It was one of the best things to happen right now! I'll be living in San Donato Milanese, which is about 5 km from Milan (capitol of that region)!! :) I'm going to have a sister, Marcella, that's two years younger than me. I would also have a brother, Giuseppe, who's my age, but he'll be spending the year in Germany while I'm over there. That means I get my own room! Later that night I sent an e-mail to my host dad and he got back to me the next morning. He speaks English REALLY well (which could be a good or bad thing) and he seems really nice!
OMG the thought that I will be on my way to San Donato Milanese, Italy in just 3 months boggles my mind! I still have SOOOOO much to do. And now that school is ending I'm realizing how much I really will miss my friends. I'd love to spend all summer hanging out with them, but I have a full time job at Hershey Park as a lifeguard so I can save up some spending money for next year! It seems every decision I make these days is centered around Italy. The stress is packing on, but hopefully the end of this school year will make things a little easier.
I'm out for now. Cheers!
