Wooo ... It has been two months? Already? I have to update this blog! So I'm going to write a bit more than usually because I feel like it! It was Spring Break last week. What have I been up to? Good question - here is the answer :)
You probably already know (or not) that Panama City Beach is really (really really) crowded during Spring Break because teenagers from all over the US are coming here to get drunk and party on the beach! What did I do? I ran away from that of course!
I left PCB 4 days before our Spring Break starts and went to Georgia with Marit and her host family (I hope y'all know her now!). They rented a cabin near a little village called Helen and we spent 4 beautiful days there! We visited Helen and we also played mini golf. What else? Oh yeah! There was a hot tub and we enjoyed it! We left the cabin on Sunday and went straight to Atlanta and we visited a giant aquarium! I tried to create a video about this wonderful experience... it's my first video so be nice please :)
THE BEACH HOUSE :
Spring Break just started when I came back from Georgia and Myra rented a beach house 30 minutes from our house (no comment...) but it still was really nice! A friend of Tara stayed with us the first night and the next day we went to a little restaurant called LaCrema and ate so much chocolate (yummy!) We went to the beach and rode bicycles and relaxed!
Lets talk about my life in the US after almost 8 months!
The first thing I have to say : 8 MONTHS? What the heck? Time goes by so fast! I still remember when my family told me "It will go really fast, you'll see" and I was like "A year, it's A YEAR and it's going to be so slow!" I was wrong of course!
What about my English? I think I can say I'm fluent in English now and I'm very proud of that! I still have my French accent but americans love it so I don't worry about it!
Am I homesick? Mmh not really, it's really rare now. Maybe sometimes... When I have a fight with one of my host family member but it does not last long and I always have people who I can talk to!
You have two months left, how do you deal with that? I'm not sure... I'm having a real struggle with that! I'm obviously really happy because I'm going to see my family, my friends, my village, my bedroom, everything I left behind me! But I'm also scared and sad. Sad because I've made a lot of friends here and I know deep down that it's not going to be hard to stay in touch when I'll go back to France ... Scared because things I hold highest now, no one at home will ever understand... Scared because I know I will start realizing how much things have changed.. But it's a part of being an exchange student! And I will never regret this year!!!
