Some Things

Hello, world. I am writing a blog post because there are other things I should be doing, and I don't count doing this as procrastinating. Also there are some things I have to say.

I started a Facebook group for my whole going-to-france thing just to make people aware that it was happening and to spread this blog around. We'll see how that works. I know it is pathetic that I have raised a whopping $28 with this blog (1% of my goal!), but it really doesn't bother me that much. I feel the need to say that for some reason.

So those are some thoughts. In other news, I FOUND OUT MY BLOOD TYPE. Finally. It's
Okay so that image didn't work out as well as I wanted it to. I can't figure out how to get the border out of there. And make it bigger. But what really matters is that I now know my blood type, and therefore am now able to go to France. That is the important thing here. So YAY! That happened.

Anyways. Blogging is such a funny experience. Mostly the part about not really being able to tell if anyone is even reading what you write. Either no one is reading it, and that's embarrassing, or lots of people are reading it, and that is also kind of embarrassing. You really have to put yourself out there, and it's pretty intimidating. Of course, this blog isn't super personal so I'm not worrying myself with all that too much, but I can't help but feel a little strange about it. I can't wait until next year when I will actually have real things to write about. French things!

That is all I am going to say right now. There are some more things I want to write, but I will save them for later because I want to keep my posts shorter than they have been. I don't want to scare away the 2 or 3 readers that I may or may not have.

  1. Congratulations on finding out your blood type, Nora! I'm excited to find out about your endeavors to go to France. I also applied for AFS to go to the US when I was your age, and went on to the final selection process - a camp!-but didn't get it because I had lived in the US before already. I should have applied for a different country!! Anyway, much later, I decided to go to France to study, and I did!! The best experience of my life. I will send you some of my Euros for support. Please send me your mailing address, ok?? momotanno(at)hotmail(dot)com love,
    ps dis bonjours a steve et nanc pour moi :)

  2. Love you Nora. I love reading your blog. And I know that in September this blog will be my home away from home to read and be in contact with you. Love you so much. I will miss you so dearly, but I am so very excited for you.

  3. I know what you mean about feeling embarrassed. Reading your blog feels like cyber-snooping and yet I am so happy to know about your plans! I'll make a contribution! I traveled across Europe before studying for a semester in London. Definitely worth it!
