Look out, Future, here I come

Well, this is it! One week from now I will be out of the country. Or maybe flying out of Philadelphia and just barely out of the country. One week from 9:45 A.M. tomorrow my plane will be landing in Paris. One week from tomorrow afternoon sometime my train will be pulling into Dijon, where I will study at the University of Bourgogne for four months.

Do you believe that? If so, you're doing better than me. Study abroad was always the distant part of college. Now suddenly it's here. But after eight years of French, I guess I'm ready for France. :)

Here's my year: France till early June, a month at home, Argentina from late July till early December, then home for another nice long Christmas break before one last semester and graduation (now that I really refuse to believe!).

My first plane ride's coming, yippee!

Hey, I understood that without using the translator!

(I'd come, but then I'd just drive you crazy. Better I stay here and annoy your father)

'Twas good to see your name on my Xanga. I've been thinking of you and missing you. I guess I assumed that you were already out of the country though, so I wasn't sure what email address to write to. But now I have your blog! :-) I'll be able to hear all about your grand globe-trotting adventures *squirms with jealousy*.

I hope you have a safe trip. Enjoy your plane ride too--I think planes are cool. Oh, and make sure you get up and walk every couple hours. People who sit on those long trans-Atlantic/Pacific plane rides are at a significanly higher risk of developing potentially fatal blood clots in their legs (you really don't want those buggers traveling up into your lungs or brain).

What will you be doing in Argentina?

Ma Hoyt said...

She's bringing home prime steaks for Loren and I :-D

Merci, Catey, j'anticipe la réalité de vous voir!

Thanks for the advice, nurse Kendra, I sure don't need blood clots. And I'm glad you have a blog, finally (one we're allowed to read!).

Thainamu, Argentina will be study abroad for Spanish. I don't think I would make it past the security dogs with steaks.

Thanks for the helpful comments, ma chère maman. :) Je t'aime, tu sais.
