This is my first blog post about going to Rennes, France for a school year abroad. In all honesty, it hasn't even sunk in yet. I have less than a month to go and I have to start figuring out how I can possibly compact a year of living into one suitcase. I know. One suitcase for nine months. I find it hard to take one suitcase for three weeks much less a whole school year. As the day of my departure creeps closer and closer I am reminded more and more of the people I will miss, especially my family. My younger brother and I, who usually fight constantly have slowly started to dial down our cat fights in the face of me leaving soon. I know that this year will have plenty of ups and downs(hopefully more ups) and that it will be an awkward first month, trying to navigate my new family, school, language, and city but I know it'll be worth it. I can't wait to take on this journey and to bring you all with me. If anyone has spent time abroad either in high school or college, feel free to let me know any experiences or tips you have to share!
Lots of love,
