My host family has a younger boy, somewhere in the 6-8 years age range. He doesn’t speak any English, so his communication with me is in hand signs or translated via family members. He is, however, a fan of Minecraft – I’m not sure why I’m surprised at all, what with the game originating much closer to here than my home.
Spent the day wandering around a castle-slash-themepark thing. It started as a castle, and stuff got added on. The castle is called… okay actually I’m just not gonna try spelling the name. I’ll get it wrong, guaranteed.
It’s a goal of mine to do some writing on this blog about my exchange to Denmark this summer, so I may as well start now: in the car, on the way to the airport. (Worry not, I’m not driving.)
I’m nervous and excited – this is the first trip of this magnitude, in terms of both length and distance, that I’ve ever taken. Everyone keeps assuring me that I’ll have a good time, and I’m quick to tell them that I’m excited, and I am. Just a bit nervous, too.
But it’s 03:30 PST, so I’m barely able to coherently think, much less write. I’ll leave this post as it is and try to get some rest or something.
Bye for now, Internet.
