Hello again.

More than two months have passed since my last post...
Now there are only four months remaining until I leave. Holy cow.

My life has been crazy busy this past month. I've been assistant/co-directing a production of Macbeth for my school's student-run theater program which opens on Tuesday. It's been a huge learning experience: overall very positive, but not devoid of stress and insanity. I also took part in a plant sale sponsored by AFS this month. It's the only fundraiser that the program sponsors and helps organize for students, and it was really successful. I received over 15 orders, which doesn't sound like a lot, but resulted in my porch filling up with 131 plants (which actually looked really cool). I'm so grateful to the people who contributed, it's really going to make a big difference.

(This is a thank-you card I made for the people who participated in the plant sale.)

I'm going to my first Pre-Departure Orientation this afternoon in Eden Prairie. I'm looking forward to finding out all sorts of information and details about my upcoming adventure.

I check my email about four times a day to see if they've sent me my host family assignment... No luck yet, but I'll keep you posted.

Have a good Sunday! It's beautiful and warm and summery here. There are only 16 days left of school.
