Still nothing.

Well, besides finally getting my visa information! It's not due until July 1st, but I already have it all filled out and ready to go. It really wasn't that much work, but then again, a lot of it is blank since...

I still don't have a city/host family/school/anything. I am really trying to not get too discouraged, but it's very frustrating. Oh well. It will come when I least expect it, and when it does, it will be all the more amazing!

Tomorrow is my last day of school. I do have summer school, but it is my last day at my school. I have so many mixed emotions at this point. I'm excited to move on with this part of my life, but at the same time, I'm so scared. I don't want to grow up! It's just weird to think that I may not see any of these people again for a long time, if ever.

More countdowns!
Grad Night: 2 days
Graduation: 6 days
Birthday: 32 days
Outbound orientation: 39 days

I still can't believe that's all I really have left between now and Hungary.

As always, I will update if I get any news.

District Conference!

So, District Conference was this weekend, and it was amazing. I'm not going to write novels like usual, but let me just say I will never forget it. Some highlights:

The homeless people on the beach, spelling "EXCHANGE" with all of us, chilling in the lobby, 5k walk with a view of the ocean, getting our blazers, the "end polio now" song, watching $24,000 get raised in ten minutes, bike riding with a view of the ocean, falling off my bike, taking pictures with random quinceanera parties, getting ice cream, johnny riding into the pole, dinner in the basement, doing better in Hungarian, holding our breath in the tunnel, watching creepy ghost shows, doing our flag presentation, and so much more.

Overall, I had a great time. I love everyone in the district and all of the inbounds and outbounds. For anyone going through Rotary in the future: cherish the time you have with your inbounds and outbounds, because after your last time, there will never be a time when you're all together again.

Anyway, more countdowns!
Powderpuff: 5 days
Grad Night: 18 days
Graduation: 22 days
Birthday: 48 days
Outbound Orientation: 55 days

Oh, and I may be hearing where I'm going soon. Fingers crossed. And I emailed the travel company, so hopefully I'll hear something from them too. Maybe there will be another post soon. Who knows!

As all of my countdowns get smaller and smaller, I can't help but get happier and happier. I'm so ready for this.
