6 days. That's all I have until I leave for France!!! I can't believe it's so close. I've been waiting to go since last year. I'll be gone 3 weeks. It will be a nice break from my usual summer routine, which consists of sitting in my cold basement watching TV and going to movies with friends. There's nothing wrong with that though.
Some of my other friends are going to Spain. They leave the day before I do. They're going with the spanish class and I'm going with the french class. It should be interesting.
I finally got an email from my french family, they live just outside of the city of Nantes, which is close to the coast. They have a little boy and a little girl. They also have two horses. It's gonna be awesome. I stay with them for one week.
I'm getting kinda nervous that I'll forget all the French that I've learned and that I won't be able to understand anyone. I'm sure I'll get through it, I can always ask the other people going on the trip. My friend Brittany and I, we'll work together on it.
Well, I should probably go and work on packing some more. I have my coolest cousins graduation to go to (Congrats Jes!!!!), so I have to be pretty organized before that.

i hate driving around my town at night with my friends. i don't mind riding with someone, but i hate having to drive. first of all, i'm pretty lame and don't race or go fast at all because i'm kind of freaked out by cops. and secondly, i hate when people start to follow me, even if i know them. that's exactly what happened tonight. i was driving on the one-ways with my friend and all of the sudden this car starts to follow us. i'm freaking out because i hate that stuff. it turns out to be some of the guys that go to our school. they were like hanging out the window and yelling at us. i think they wanted us to pullover at one point. but seriously, they wouldn't leave us alone for like 20 minutes. i was freaking out because i thought that i was doing something wrong, but my friend was laughing and was telling me that people just do that for fun. that kinda ruined my night after that because i didn't want to drive on busy streets in case they found me again. i'm so weird and paranoid like that. i need to loosen up a bit. oh well, i'm done venting for now.

the girls on the distance team for track are seriously some of the sweetest girls that i have ever met. two of them are my 'big sisters', one of which is my good friend, and for a gift for me, they all pitched in and bought me a brand new pair of running spikes.
this is like the sweetest thing any of my friends have ever done for me, it made me so happy. i wore them for my meet today, and i must say that my time improved on both of my events, the 800m and the mile. hopefully i'll keep improving in the next two weeks that we have left. i'm so excited for summer, then i can run whenever! i know that's kinda sad, but i love it, it's fun.
all this talk about running makes me want to go running now. i have a lot of energy. oh well. i'm gonna stop now and go. bye.

this has been such a hard year for seniors at my school. first one of the seniors lost her mom to a heartattack. then, one of our hockey players was nearly paralyzed during a game and is still being hospitalized. now, one of the seniors just committed suicide. i just can't imagine being so depressed that i just don't want to live anymore. i pray for anyone who feels like this. this just isn't the way to end a school year.

my friend natalya, a foreign exchange student from ukraine, left to go back home today. it was so sad, she didn't want to leave and no one else wanted her to. the worst part is, she had to leave her boyfriend. that was sad. i exchanged addresses and e-mail addresses with her so hopefully we'll be able to keep in touch. i'm gonna miss her. she was my french partner too, so now i'm all alone in class. i really wish she didn't have to leave so early. i wish i would have hung out with her more, too. oh well, at least i got to know her. that's about all i can do.
