Graduation, class 2010

So this is only semi related to exchange but none of it would have occured without Belgium.
Tonight was my high school graduation and I am now literally done. Its such a weird feeling. I started high school with a certain group of kids with the intention of completing my four years of school and graduating as the class of 2011. Within the span of this year, that idea has completely changed. I have just graduated, in 3 years, with a group of people i hardly knew, and as the class of 2010.
Anyway just saying that im glad my hard work paid off and that its weird :P

For those of you unfamiliar with Belgian geography- here is a conveinent little map :D
The line in the middle area is the showing the boundary with Flanders in the North and Wallonia in the South. The red dot is supposedly where I will be living.

famille d'accueil

Okay so I have something intersting to write about. I just got my host family which has brought about a whole new wave of nevous/excited energy. According to the sparse info i have, I'm going to be living in province of Namur in the town of Perwez . Its basically right in the middle of Wallonia. I have 6 host siblings in addition to the parents but I don't know if all of them live at home. From what I can tell, its a small town of about 4000 in a rural area.

So its all pretty good essentially. I wasnt expecting to get a family for a long time so this came as a pleasant suprise. But like i said, now i'm going to have thses thoughts swirling in my head for the rest of the summer.

a bientot!
