Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

     That's actually the name of a Jack Johnson song and I felt that it goes good with what's happening in exchange world right now.(x So anyways as you can probably gather from the title I am sitting...and waiting for AFS to contact me about...anything. And I am wishing. I am wishing to get accepted by AFS and that the rest of this process will go (relatively) smoothly.
      On another note, I just received an email from my liason...

"Hi Nicole,
 
I wanted to wish you a Happy Holiday season!
 
Next year at this time, I will be writing to you in Italy.  That is pretty exciting stuff.
 
It won’t be long now and AFS will be reviewing your application and sending it to Italy.  And then you will wait ..... until they find you a host family.  And then you will wait ..... while you establish a bond with your host family.  And then you will wait ...... until it is time to start your trip.  Exciting times for you.
 
Best wishes for a happy holiday season."
 
 Haha yeah, so as you can see, exchange consists of a lot of waiting. But it is pretty amazing that if everything goes well, I will be in Italy in less than 9 months! Also, next Christmas I will be with mia famiglia italiana.(: 

Happy Holidays everyone.(:
