Well, most of my friends are already in their countries, having a blast, while I'm still here, anxiously awaiting my turn to depart.
I'm not the only one, though. All the outbounds around the world spending their year in France are scheduled to arrive in Paris on Tuesday the 28th. What a party! Upon our arrival, Betty and I will meet up with the 39 other inbounds in our district, 1510, and we will all take a bus trip down to the beach where we have a four-day orientation camp. I just can't wait to meet all these kids and make even more new friends. Plus, what can beat a French coastal town?

Now, these last days are filled with finalizing my packing and seeing friends, having them sign my exchange notebook.
|The notebook a friend of mine cleverly dubbed the "Anti-Diary"|
This is most likely the last entry I'll have before I'm in France. I'm fairly certain that I'll have my next update before the 19th of September, but I'll make it a goal to publish an entry on the 19th of every month at least, as long as I have the means to do so.
But until then, I will once again end with a picture--this time, it's a photo of the school year planner I got this weekend.
