What is Foreign Exchange to Me?

November 22, 2010: Before Anything Real Happens...

Hey everyone! I'm going to try and write about all the upcoming Rotary events in order to try and get used to posting regularly for when I actually go on my trip... and eventually I'll think of a creative way to start the entries, until then here it goes... :)

In case you didn't already know, my name is Angie and I'm going on foreign exchange for a year with Rotary, or so I hope! I play piano, soccer, badminton, and like to rock climb in my free time.. though I haven't had much of it lately. I have curly, semi-blond hair that usually has randomly placed braids in it and I'm hoping to go to Switzerland.

Today everything began to feel real! This evening I met Gaye, Valery, and Carolyn (sorry if I misspelled any names) for my interview in Oakmont! I'm so excited, I can't even describe it! The interview lasted almost 2 and a half hours, if you include miscellaneous socializing that took place afterwords, as well as Gaye allowing me to play on her beautifully tuned baby grand piano.
Which, might I add, was fantastic!

I'm going to also try and get into the habit of posting pictures, so I'll start with one I took today in the store we stopped at before the interview. We were early and decided to get some hot coco :)

To get a general idea, here are a few photos of me and my favorite pastimes here in America :)


As time progresses, I'm going to work on making this blog have a better display. Until then auf Wiedersehen!!
