8:47 PM; Sent The Envelope, with a worried mother, and two best friends
Monday, March 30, 2009
Yesterday I sent the first forms to AFS,they should arrive by Wednesday or Thursday. I felt really happy when I did that, I'm sort of happy for the next step which is a bigger application form. It feels nice to know that you want to do something so bad but to do it it involves hard work which works out to be rewarding. That what I feel, with hard work, lots of support, I know it can come with a good result. I'm not totally sure I'll get it but I'll be positive and be myself. Mom was kind of sad when we sent the letter in, I think she realizes that I'll be leaving her for a year. It not me who will have a hard time with this but also my mom who has a hard time living without me, I think. I reassured her that it would be alright and that if I go she can contact me any time, and after a while my mom calmed down and return to normal. Now she is just making sure with tons of questions that I'll be safe in Japan. I understand her feelings. Also today my friends are realizing that if I go I won't be with them for graduation so they're starting to do plans. They're making lots of plans with me so they will have enough to be with me. This made me happy inside and sad, but mainly happy because it showed how good of friends they're. I also think it good for me to hang out with them every weekend or every other weekend because it will give me a chance to bond with them and just be buddies. I enjoy hanging out with them and if i go I will truly miss them, especially since now they're trying to figure out a time when we can all talk on msn together while I'm over there.
I know it may sound stupid to think this far ahead, but it cannot be helped or I guess overlooked. I joined a process and all I can do is try my best, be myself, and remember to be optimistic. It may sound dumb to be talking about this now, but it's seriously how I feel. Anyways thats all I got for today . Till next time, I'm off to sleep.
It's hard to believe that last Thursday I e-mailed my dad and told him about AFS and he said he liked the plans and it was a sincere e-mail. Yesterday, Saturday, me and him went to Houston Pizzas after Japanese class and ate,talked about AFS. I showed him everything, the whole program's information, what was included. The pro's and con's. Why I wanted to go on the exchange, and that I would work for the fundraising. He said he would think about it and then we both went to see The Race to Witch Mountain which was a pretty good movie but slow in some parts. After that I told him to think about it and I went inside and discussed the days events with my mom. I remembered what my best friend Brittany said to me, or has said to me many times, "Think positive and good things will happen, think negative and bad things will happen to you." I remember these words from her and said to myself "Think Positive" and I did. For the last few nights I haven't been able to sleep, too much on my mind, and maybe I'm thinking to much ahead. Anyways during these restless nights I just stare at the ceiling. Last night, I turned on the music to help me. I was really worried but kept to my promise of being positive. This morning I kept looking at my phone to see if Dad had text me at all to tell me his answer, nothing. I checked my phone three or four times this morning. So I just went on with my dad and this afternoon I finally decided to look at my phone and I had gotten a text from my dad saying to read my hotmail for a e-mail. So I quickly rushed onto my computer and did just that, but the weird thing was their was no e-mail. Maybe he just sent it, I looked at the time the text was sent. Two hours ago. That's weird, or maybe fate is trying to tell me to face my answer in voice and not just over the internet. So I phoned my dad and said, I didn't get the e-mail. And he said yes to the AFS thing. I was so happy that I want to scream, I still do, but I kept my cool and he told me that even though he said yes their is a contract that he has made to which I must follow if I want to go and get his haft of the money. He says I must go to church once a month, instead of going to movies and dinner with him will eat at his house and watch t.v, and of course I said yes. So I was happy. Mom doesn't know Dad said yes yet but I'll tell her over dinner tonight when we go to Moxie's. I'm going to be working part-time to get the $5,000 for fundraising. I want to work for it. I feel this year and next is going to consist of worrying, hard work, being optimistic, lots of praying, following the rules, and letting life take me in the path I'm meant to go on. Oh My God, I'm so excited XD I decided I'll be blogging my journey of this AFS experience of me working hard and if I'll get in or not. I told my Japanese Teacher about it, well one of them, she was so happy for me. I'd never seen her this happy, I feel that I'll have not only my family and friends support but also my Japanese teachers support.
Anyways I few weeks ago I bought Detective Conan 10 Anniversiry Movie Guide and Cafe!Buono CD so here are the two pictures that I took of them. I got them last week XD.
10:40 PM; "I'm Back& And Applying For AFS"
Thursday, March 26, 2009
I've return to blogging, well no I've been blogging on other blogs and still am but I've return to put more of my love and soul into it. I've got some quick updates for you: First I don't have arthritis or M.S, Second in July I'm going on exchange for 2 weeks to Japan with my school program. I'll be staying with a host family and going to school.Third I'll be applying for AFS Canada to go on a exchange for a semester to Japan. I want to do another exchange because I want to learn the language and culture more, 2 weeks isn't enough. Also I want to make new friends XD
See the first exchange which is two weeks long is I go to Yokohama for 2 weeks and stay with a host family and then they come here in April for 2 weeks. The two girls that are staying with me are coming in 2 weeks. I can't wait!!! We started the organizing for this exchange in January of 2008, so it's been a long time coming. I'm so excited.
The second exchange which is with AFS is to go to Japan. I have the preliminary forums and wish to go in the Summer of 2010 for a semester. I'll be 17 XD. See my mom agreed to it but I needed to get my dad to agree so I emailed him and he gave me the OK after some thought and I've been so happy ever since I received that text message from him. He said we talk about it more on Saturday when I see after my regular Saturday Japanese class. I really hope I get to go on this exchange because I think it can be a once in a life time experience. Pray the best of luck to me.
Other then that, I've moved to a new house with my mom. I really like it, and we got a puppy which I named Yuuki which mean's gentle princess in Japanese, and yes it's Yuuki's Cross name from Vampire Knights.
This is just a shot post, saying I've returned and will be writing more!!!
