The time has come. My bags are packed.
Thanks mom, for some great peach pie to accompany my last supper, if you will.
Tomorrow my parents will drop me off at the JFK Hilton before they take off for a trip to Maine. And I'll finally get to meet the other students who are going to France with me. My flight is on Thursday--an overnight flight. We arrive in Paris at 6:45am their time. We spend the rest of Friday and then Saturday in Paris (more about that to come) and then on Sunday I get to meet my host family at long last!
So, I've come a long way already and I have a big leap coming up. Am I nervous? Absolutely. I have been having my doubts about making this choice. I know it's going to be really tough at the beginning. I know I'm going to miss my parents. But I also know that it will be amazing and new and exciting and instructional and I'll really be able to get a taste (perhaps literally) of a whole new culture. This is it!
