My last few hours. AH!

As you can read from the title, I'm in my last few hours. I'm supposed to leave the house in 6 hours.. dang. I should really sleep. But this good, now I'll be exhausted for my flight from Philadelphia to Frankfurt. I want to sleep then.

As usual, I'm not prepared.. I think I finished packing, but I'll have to check it once more to make sure I have all of my basics at least. :)

Then I should tidy up my room... I know my parents don't want to deal with it.

Today will start a new chapter in my life. I want to turn the page already and start!

Actually, this will be my first time flying. I have 2 flights by myself. I fly from Moline to Chicago and Chicago to Philadelphia by my little lonesome. Let's hope I can find my way around! But in Philadelphia I'll fly with about 15 other exchange students. I'm the only one staying in Estonia, the rest are staying in Finland. But when we go to the language camp, I'll meet the 5 other students going to Estonia. :)
So basically, I'm ready to go now! Maybe not completely... I'm still chilaxing in my pajamas listening to Depeche Mode, but I think you can catch my drift. I'm excited!

So all I have to say to the Americans reading this,

Hey! My name is Maarja and I also found your blog... somehow :) I'm an Estonian also, though not an exchange student going anywhere, although I'd like to. I hope you won't be disappointed in our little country. Some Estonians tend to be a little reserved at first, but don't lose your hope :) They'll change when they'll get to know you better.
Also, it's so cool that you are really coming to Estonia instead of ... Germany ... France ... Italy :) :) :)
As you can see, a lot of Estonians are reading your blog already, so if you ever have any questions, just ask us.
And btw, if they other 5 students coming to Estonia also have blog, it would be very nice of you to share they blog addresses :)

I hope you'll enjoy you year!
Maarja / btw, I'm from Tartu (the second largest town) /

Best of Luck,
