the time is near

I don't quite know what to do with myself for the last month of being in America. This summer has been the weirdest summer I have ever had and it makes me question whether or not I am ready to leave my home. I can't picture myself in Zagreb and probably willn't be able to until I get there. All of this is still a dream and might come true if my travel agent ever calls me back! I have been talking to my host mom now for a while and she is really cool and even reminds me of my own mother. There is nothing more to talk about than my fear of being the one person in the RYE program that doesn't get to go because I forgot to get a form signed and the ambassy of Croatia will not let me in. For now atleast I can just pretend that I am not going so my nerves don't get the best of me. I have been doing a lot of traveling lately, going to D.C. to see my capital before I go live in another, went to the beach and revisited my childhood in VA. It's all been great but it's a little weird coming home and having nothing to do and finding out that most of my friends have changed a little. They have all spent their summer together and I was off traveling. I guess it is better to be deattached from the ones you love before you go and live somewhere else for a year.
