Hey there world... this will be my last post from Los Gatos, CA for approximately a year, and perhaps from the USA. I head off tomorrow morning at the ripe 'ol hour of 5:00 AM for the YES Abroad National Pre Departure Orientation in Washington D.C.. We will have three days full of bonding, workshops, and visits to the State Department and the Thai Embassy. I am excited, sad, and nervous. All of the emotions expected of person who is about to venture off into the unknown for about a year. I don't have much to say. It's true that it doesn't feel real yet, yadda yadda.
All I really know is that I hope I live up to the standards of the greatest exchange vlogger in existence:
And I love you all. And I want you to know that.

I am really just dreading saying goodbye to my parents. I know that there will be tears, and I just don't want to have to face that solemn pit in my stomach once more. :| But in time, it will be replaced with the excitement of arriving at my destination, and the beginning of a new and irreplaceable experience.

So, I would like to say adieu.

That's all for now, folks,


  1. The feeling is mutual, but the year will fly by and you'll be back before you know it, having gained another surrogate family and a lifetime full of memories. We love you.

  2. I am picturing you on a magic carpet ride with a big smile on your face. Love, kisses and hugs,
    Your Aunties

  3. I am so jealous of you (in a good way, of course). I would love to get a second shot at exchange; that familiar excitement and anticipation, the chance to experience a "new" foreign culture... You're so lucky, and I hope you have the best possible exchange! :)

    1. Aww don't be jealous. I'm sure you are having marvelous adventures in Denmark :D
