I haven't posted in a while and thought I should update everybody on whats been going on. This weekend was the 6270 District conference held in Green Bay. On Friday I got picked up by the bus and all of the 10-11 outbounds and the 09-10 inbounds drove up to the hotel. When we got there we ate lunch and got our room assignments then we practiced our flag ceremony for a looong time. Then, we changed into our nice cloths and blazers and performed the Flag ceremony for all the Rotarians and ate dinner. There was this rule that only one exchange student could be at a table so we all had to mingle with the Rotarians, which honestly isn't as bad as it sounds..haha. After dinner we had free time and all got to chill at the pool and hang around the hotel and talk about, well, everything. I spent some time with Inbound from France, Romain, and the inbound from Belgium, Pierre, and attempted to speak French with them. They were both really nice and said I had a good accent but when they spoke to each other in French I could barley pick up anything. We all stayed up until two just talking and I had a great time with my roommates( inbounds from Thailand, Twain, and the outbound to Italy) and we set our alarm for 6:30am. The next morning all of us reluctantly got out of bed and we ready by 7 then one of the girls looked at her cell phone and said "Wait, it's only 6am". Some idiot who was in our hotel room before us had made the clock an hour fast so we actually got up at 5:30am! Long story short, we were all EXHAUSTED. After breakfast we performed our "talent show" and at the end we all sung "Stand by me"( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Us-TVg40ExM ). Overall, this weekend i got to meet so many amazing kids and it was really hard to leave. One hard thing about exchange is that you get to meet all these great people, but when you leave you know that there's a chance you'll never see them again. But, now I'm even more excited about this experience.
I haven't heard form my host family yet but i received and e-mail from a kid in France ( assuming he was my Student laison) saying that my neighboring cities would be Cannes, Antibes, and Vallarius. Cant wait till I know for sure! ]
