First off, let me apologize for missing yesterday’s blog. Overall, it was just one of those days, so I decided to blog today to make up for it.
That’s enough of that – Let’s move on!
The countdown. That’s right. Only five days remain before I head off to France for a month. This is about when I start to get those little butterflies in my stomach, who flutter around and send my anxiety through the roof. Not very pleasant. Not at all.
I’ve never gone to France before. Now, the first time I do go, I’ll live with a woman I haven’t met before and work full-time in a place I’ve never been.
Nervous? Maybe a little.
Who wouldn’t be?
The problem isn’t necessarily speaking French for four weeks, though that’s definitely part of it. Just all the little details together make for a big cause of stress. I’m not one who likes to get worked up over things like this, but a few raging nerves still survive.
I have my list of things to take – though books are still up for grabs – and I intend to start the packing process tomorrow. Saturday is the day I leave, so I want to get things ready ahead of time.
The woman I’ll live with does have internet, but only on her computer. I’ll do my best to keep this blog updated, but I can’t guarantee three posts per week. At the very least, I’ll make sure to post once a week.
It’s the least I can do. I’d hate to abandon this thing I’ve worked so hard to build and perfect.
Even if I don’t update often this next month, worry not.
I’ll be back.
Any tips or advice on how to lose some of the nerves, or prepare? Have you ever gone through something like this?
