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!
