8 weeks...

And many more to come.

The other day on facebook another girl who is studying abroad in Spain right now wrote that she has six more weeks until she gets to see her family. That made me think about how many more weeks I have, in total it's around 34! And eight have already passed, that's a total of...a lot!

So today marks the day that I left Maine, exactly two months ago. WOW! What an adventure so far. And today was no less of an adventure than yesterday. For yesterday consisted of a lot of old teenage guys, their girlfriends (just imagine because I don't want to describe) and a bounce house. Entertaining, I would say yes. And today was a monumental day, because I took my first French test and totally flopped. I think in total I left about 5-6 answers blank because I had no idea. How am I suppose to be able to remember French vocabulary when I am just trying to get a grasp on Spanish.
The class corrected the tests after we finished and me having once again good luck got a nice girl who "fixed" some of my answers to be correct and had me write in some of the questions that I didn't answer because, well because I didn't know the answer. Its cool that people are looking out for me, even people I don't even know.

A thanks goes out to all of those people who have helped me along the way thus far, and whom I know will never read my blog.

p.s. I got a 5 on the bio test!


  1. Why does she get to see her family in 6 weeks? Is she only a semester long? Congratulations on your 8 weeks mark, 5 on biology and completion of your French test! You rock! Love, Mimi

  2. It is incredible that you are even taking French at all. EEsh--my brain would have difficulty. But just think, so many neurons are firing, brain cells are growing, in so many directions--even if you just learn VERY basic stuff. So keep at it. but mostly, have fun. You are amazing and I love to read all that you are doing. Things are all the same old, same old here. Nothing new, you arent missing anything, other than some cold rainy days, alot of white people speaking English and not knowing or even imagining knowing another language or culture.
    So take this all in Heather--you daredevil you!
    I love you,
    love, Connie
