I didn’t even think of posting a picture of my LOVELY visa until I saw that another Auxiliar had done it on her blog.

So here it is 🙂

Oh yeah, that picture is FANTASTIC


netflix, tv shows etc. abroad

Today while I was channel surfing, I started thinking today about all of the tv shows and movies that I’ll miss while I’m in Spain. Not that I’m super obsessed with any shows or going to the movies in general, but I do enjoy watching stuff from Netflix at home or on my laptop. I really wish that there was an option to just have instant view access every month from Netflix, but to keep that feature I have to have at lease one DVD out at a time. An option for tv shows, other than Netflix, is definitely Hulu, but I’m not sure about their selection. Another option is going to the station’s website and hoping that they have full episodes available.

What sites do you use for tv shows?

what to bring?

I talked to a guy that I will be working with that is returning to one of my schools for the second year (so he definitely knows what he’s talking about!). You know what the kids in his classes liked the MOST that he brought?

I find that so hilarious! He told me that they love stuff like that, especially if you can’t find it in Spain.

This makes me think of all of the things that I want to bring when I go. I know that I’ll HAVE to bring a ton of American candy after talking to my co-auxiliar, but what else? I want to bring children’s books, photos, maps (suggestions from a different returning co-auxiliar), some music maybe (I might have to copy my sister’s Justin Bieber CD to my ipod haha), silly bandz?! I’m trying to think of what is popular among young children in the US, and maybe bringing some of that so that they can see what is trendy and “cool.”

What do you think would be good to bring with me?


first post – more to come

It’s hard to believe that I’m not going to class today. Today marks the first day of classes at UGA for the Fall 2010 semester, and I will not be attending. Being a graduate still feels kind of weird to me. I feel like I’m in this weird in-between phase because I don’t have a real job yet, and I’m not in Spain yet either. Excited and nervous at the same time, I’m wondering what my life will be like in the next few months and my departure date is only a month and a few days away.  I’m ready to see something new, but I’m sad that I have to leave everything and everyone I know to be able to do that. I guess it’s all about growing up, and I am certain that a lot of that will happen in my 9 months abroad.

Stay tuned for more posts as the trip gets closer.
