Sorry for the confusion of switching urls I swear this blog still exists.

Photobombing Level: Lexi
After a very crappy month, things are starting seem brighter and brighter. The snow is melting and people are generally happier. Valentines day was about a week or two ago, but Romanians don't celebrate Valentine's Day they celebrate Dragobete. It's the same idea except celebrated on the 24th. The exchange students and me went to a Rotary party for Dragobete. It was very interesting except we paid 10 lei for water O_O Water is usually like 1 lei haha oh well. There was a live band playing eighties music and there were plenty of people there. I can say we all had a good night....I think haha. Who couldn't have fun watching drunk Rotarians dance around to Jump haha. Also only on Dragobete can one get married for a single day! The mayor came by our party and married a bunch of the people there, it was soooooo sweet.

Also now in the center of town there is a market for Martisor. Martisor is a Romanian celebration where boys give girls these cute little pins in honor of spring coming! It also has a lot of cute valentines day stuff there. It was nice to see people out and about again, after being frozen in the snow!

That is my Valentine's Day Tree

"I'd like to fly. Then I wouldn't have to wait in airport security lines," Jim Morris

"I'd like to fly. Then I wouldn't have to wait in airport security lines," Jim Morrison

I actually strangely enough love airports, I don't know if it is the exciting feeling that comes with them or just the fact that you can people watch people from all over the world. I just recently got my tickets for my return flight to Durango and lets just say I am excited. I leave on July 4th and arrive in Durango July 5th, so I'll just barely miss my countries independence day!

I leave Bucharest July 4th at 6:20 am and will arrive in Frankfurt at 7:55 am. 

I leave Frankfurt at 12:45 pm and arrive in Chicago at 2:40 pm.

I leave Chicago at 5:00 pm and arrive in Denver at 6:38 pm.

I leave Denver, July 5th, at 8:20 am and arrive in beautiful Durango 9:30

Now this isn't set in stone but I think I will keep it like this or try. If I do then there is a fairly good chance that I will be flying with my good friend Lexi all the way to Chicago! Also I can meet up with one of the mexicans, Marco, in Frankfurt. 

I calculate my entire travel time though and it will be about 36 hours O_O
As long as I can find either a Tacos place or bagel I will be fine.....

P.S. Tacos and Bagels I miss you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH! I AM SO STOPPING AT STARBUCKS when I find one... hey I have three four airports I'm sure there is one

Half Way...

Casa Toscana wondering what on
earth is happening behind us
Today it has been exactly 5 months, basically my half way point. Even though I don't know my leave date yet.

Well these have been the most interesting 5 months of my life I think. I am almost getting tired of "learning experiences" haha. I have gone through every emotion on the planet, and still I never regret coming. One really never knows how life will play out, but it's strange to think of the choices that got you to a certain point. The choices that got me to sitting in my room in Romania writing a post to inform all of the people in America that I'm still alive... SURPRISE!!!!

Well these last ten days have, sadly, I have been putting forth effort for my return to America. :(
I now I am signing up for classes in the states and lets just say my schedule doesn't seem fun, in fact, knowing I have to do everything when I get back is kind of scary. I take the classes AP english, AP franceza, AP US history, trig and functions, chemistry, and hopefully free periods! None of this is for sure, but I really really hope that, that is all I am taking :D

I also am planning my plane ticket back, but I have no idea when I will be going back yet.

The muppet dog
I never thought I would EVER say this, but I really do miss the States. I have come to realize that just because it is amazingly uninteresting where I live, there are things that I love. I love my friends, my family, my animals and I am excited to see them again, but not that excited.

I see what you did there
Although I am excited to go home, I am not that excited I still have a half a year right! Overall things have been going pretty well, this weekend is the birthday of one of the exchange students Liz. Everybody wish her a happy birthday!

I know this post is kind of random but it's a weird feeling being half way through. I feel like I am ready to go home and at the same time I feel like I need a lot more time! Although in the end I know I will miss the days of exchange a lot more than I miss the US right now. The time is going by way to fast, to fast to even think. January is already gone!

Exchange wish: BE SPRING I WANT HEAT!
Exchange wish: FLUENT IN ROMANIAN... haha
The pictures are just from the last week :D
