I am a really bad person, I know.
But from this past November to pretty much yesterday I had tests and oral tests almost EVERY DAY. These months should be called ‘hell‘. I don’t now how, but I’m still alive!
This is the last week of school before the Christmas holidays break and, for me, is the last week of school in my country untill the next September!

As you may know from my previous post, I will be an exchange student; I’m going to U.S.A from January to June (hooraaayy).
As you may not know – no okay, as you certainly not know – at the beginning of November I came to know the State in which I’m going to live for the next six months! (Huge HOORAYYYY)
And the State is…….:
I have seen (thanks Google Earth!) the town where I’m going to live and it’s really lovely! And I also have seen the school where I’m going to study and it is beautiful and maybe four time larger than my current school.
My host family seems so nice to me and yestarday I received the first email from my host mum. She seems really kind and when, in the email, she wrote that she has told all of her friends and relatives that I will be there, I was so touched.
I will arrive in the US on January the 18th or 19th.
My relatives this past Saturday organised me a surprise party. They did a big banner that said: “SURPRISE! You didn’t expect this, did you?!”
They showed me a video with all my photos, from when I was a baby, a little girl to the girl I am now. In this video there were also some message that they had recorded for me. In the background there was the song “Girl on fire” covered by Naya Rivera on Glee.
Needless to say I was a sort of fountain for how much I cried. Love them endlessly.
This is the spectacular and so delicious cake:
And this is the breathless present they gave me (to, exact words from the note: do the VIP in the US!):
So I guess the countdown begins!
If anyone wants to recommend me some particular beautiful place in North Carolina that should absolutely be visited or wants to give me some information about NC, I would be really happy about it!
I leave you with the beautiful, in my opinion, motto of the State of North Carolina:
