The countdown begins

It is less than three months before I leave for the Netherlands and yet there is so much to be done!  I have already done a lot for this trip; I have my passport, I have applied and been accepted to the program, and I have picked out my classes. I still have to book my flight, complete my housing application and finish my scholarships!  We have a meeting next week, for the outbound students to talk with student who have gone in the past.  It will be nice to talk with other students to hear about their experiences so that I will know better what to expect.  I especially need tips on things to pack because it is going to be interesting trying to pack for five months! It is nice that there will be 2-3 other people going over seas with me. 

I do plan on staying in touch with everyone here in the States while I am gone so you all can live vicariously through me and not miss me too much! I will try to post all my pictures on facebook and I will also still have my school e-mail account.  I also just created a skype account so I can set up skype dates with people.  I hope to us this blog to give updates on how things are going and I would like to include pictures and videos as well.  It will be interesting to see how long I can keep this up!

This semester is going by so fast; I will be in Europe before I know it!
