July 29th

It’s about a month until I leave. kinda crazy to think about but I am excited. It still seems as strange as it did 6 or 7 months ago. I can’t wait though. I have gotten my itinerary for my flights out to Berlin. I’m taking off out of Fort Wayne International around 1 on August 22nd. I’m heading to Detroit, where I’ll sit for a few hours until I head out for my long flight to Amsterdam. After that i have an hour or so flight to Berlin. I will get there 8:20 am on the next day. I can’t wait to meet my host family in person and start my year abroad.

I miss band. Band camp has started and I miss all my children. I miss my horn and I miss catching the sun. I’m not bored though. My class is going well and I enjoy it. I’m into history so it’s nice that I can study that. I feel anxious but that’s just because I don’t know what to expect with everything. Oh well I’ll just have to figure it out, I guess that’s part of the fun.
