First Official Post

Friday, May 29, 2009

Ok, so due to the complaints from parents and my friend Matt about having no posts... here is the first OFFICIAL blog to Sean's Blog.

The blackberries we got are pretty cool. It will be really helpful to be able to talk to everyone with the email address ( and to be able to get online. I've been looking at the Australia blog, and it sounds like they're having a great time. Hopefully we enjoy ours as much, but I'm sure we will. It also seems that they use the blackberries and computers all the time! Again, it will be great to have those tools with us.

Today, KGAN channel 2 news came to interview all of us during lunch. Hopefully I'll get on TV! It was really funny when they asked me about shots and stuff, and I told them about the polio, typhoid, and malaria stuff, but then also about the anti-diarrhea pills! That got everyone laughing.

I like how today, I officially signed my life (almost) away. There was one line on one of the waivers that said, "I give up all my legal rights" or something like that. Maybe that's not good? But I'm sure they will all come back upon arrival in the US.

According to my official phone calendar countdown, there are only 4 days left now until June 2! I am getting really excited. After the class I'm in right now, I will only have 7 classes left for the school year! The only finals I have to finish now are Spanish and chemistry. Maybe I should start an hour/minute countdown since it's getting so close to June 2. Can't wait to meet everyone in Germany and have a great time in South Africa.
