Just about a month and 14 days.
I still haven't heard of a host family! aaarrrrgggg >:[
But I'm waiting as patiently as I can.
Now, whenever I think of what's coming, I get this awful quiziness inside the pit of my stomach.
It's just a mix of nerves and excitement.

I have to get my drivers license before I leave.  This will be fun.  I HATE HATE HATE driving. I detest it.
And I am not the world's best driver, as many teens are not.  But I just don't like operating automobiles.
I just get one try at this test because I won't be here long enough to be able to take it again.
Oh well.  Let's get this over with. I just need this extra form of identification.

I've been away for awhile.  Just nothing to write about.  I'm not just blogging this for my family, and friends, and for the other future AFS students, I want to have this all written down to show my children, and for my future friends and family.  Yes. And most importantly, me.  I'll probably forget lots of things when I get older and I'll want to accurately re-call these lovely moments before, during, and after mis adventuras.

Well I had to go get a few passport/Visa pictures taken today.  On Friday, I'm taking the train from Milwaukee to Chicago.  One of my favorite things to do is take the train. But back to the matter.
I have an appointment at the Spanish Consulate for my visa.  This process is like nails on a chalkboard, and I hear that most countries' visa processes are not as complicated, but it will all be worth it.

Luckily my parents have gone through many processes like this before.  So they are not completely foreign to this.  It's a little more tedious, but not impossible.   Just aggravating.
To any people thinking of going to Spain with AFS!! -----> KEEP EVERYTHING ORGANIZED! EVERYTHING IN A NICE ORGANIZED FOLDER.  Keep every little email regarding the Visa application.  Read everything.  If you're not sure about somthing, ask! ASK! Email AFS, or email me.  I'll be happy to answer questions.  One little mix-up, no matter how trivial in the beginning, can blow up in your face later on.  That would stink.

Anywhoo I hope summer is a happy time for everyone right now. Stay cool. Ill talk to you sometime after Friday :)
