It is time to say goodbye to Kennebunk High School… It was my last day of school before I go to Turkey. I will be leaving in about two and a half months, which is still hard to believe. I can’t wait to experience a new culture, language, and family.
So far, my last summer in America seems great. The weather in Maine is great during the summer, so I plan on going to the beach often. I already have many things that I want to do, along with learning Turkish (of course). I recently bought a new unicycle to learn with and I found out that I am actually not that bad at golf, so there are two activities that I will be doing. I am still hoping to get a job, too!
I also have a few vacations lined up. I am going to D.C. in August, which I am really excited for. I am also going to theater camp later this month for a week, which was great last year. This year, I am going with more friends, so hopefully it will be even better this year J
. My dad is planning a trip to see his family in Pennsylvania, and I will most likely tag along.
For my AFS trip, I bought another Turkish language book, this time it is a vocabulary book (my other one is more grammar-focused). I have also begun to raise money by putting donation jars in some stores across town. I thought it would be a good idea because my town has a lot of tourism, and it seems to be working just fine; I checked my earnings from the past few weeks and I already had at least $45! It might not seem like that much, but it is way more than I expected.
So anyways, not much has happened except for school, which has been difficult with all of my exams. I am excited for my summer and my foreign exchange, and I will continue to update throughout the summer J
