Day 2- June 30th, 2011- at the apartment

Well I just got to my apartment, it"s old and a little sparse, but I"m sure I can make it homey in no time.  i have my own room, but there are six rooms total...and only one bathroom.  Right now there are three other room mates that I haven"t had the opportunity to meet.  Once I get all settled in and they"re done with whatever they"re doing I"m sure we will get aquanited.

I don"t think they are all American, but I"ve been told over the next couple of days two other girls will be arriving, and atleast one of them is from the states as well.

First on my agenda is to exchange my money, next it will be food and then some time today I will be finding a pillow, because in the four bags of luggage that I brought, that is the one thing I forgot.

I"m gonna grab a shower and take a nap, then I"ll be meeting with Nathan (the guy in charge of the program) to get all the information and junk.  I start classes Monday : )

P.S.  I"ve taken pictures of the inside of my apartment, however still trying to figure out how to upload them on this ancient computer.  May have to go to an internet cafe or use a computer at the university... but pictures to come : )

Day 1- June 29th, 2011- on the plane

Feeling a little sentimental.  I already miss everyone i"ve left behind in Texas.  I know I should be excited, and I am, but right now it"s more nervous than excited.... This is my first trip alone.  No family, no friends, and no idea of what to expect.

I think i"ve been keeping myself from getting too excited so I don"t get let down, which tends to happen to me.  I let my imagination get the better of me and then nothing, no matter how great, can measure up.

I know i"ve been saying once I get on the plane it will feel real, but it still doesn"t.  Once I leave the airport and see where i"m staying, and meet my roommates, I think it will finally hit me.  Hopefully.

I just hope I can sleep through most of this 10 hour flight.  I brought a book, my Ipod, and melatonin.  Think I might even have a cocktail to ease the nerves.  (sorry mom : ) )

I do realize what a great opportunity this is, and what a big accomplishment this is for me... Leaving the country and the people I"m accustomed to...going to a country that doesn"t even speak the same language....However I will be dancing, and dance is a universal language.

This is going to be an interesting and exciting adventure!!!!

P.S. I warn you all now, this keyboard is different than i"m used to and the spell check is in spanish, so my spelling and punctuation wont be awesome, but i"ll get my point across
