Switzerland does not equal Sweden

So, for those who don't know I, abby, am going off to Europe for ten months. No, I am not pregnant and if I was, my dad would not waste his precious money to send me off to give birth to a child. This is not the fifties people!!! Anyways, I'm doing a full year study abroad in Neuchatel, Switzerland. My major is French with a minor in Art History. It's my junior year at the university and I have been planning on doing a wicked study abroad like this one since I was a sophomore in highschool. Hey, I have big dreams!

So I have bee telling people that I'm off to the switzerland for awhile ( it's a good conversation starter), but, I don't know why, maybe people haven't taken geography, but people keep saying "Oh well, you look Swedish, so you'll just fit right in!" ......????? At first I just never corrected them. Why? I don't know, but I felt bad for them. But it happened so much that after awhile I was so fed up with it that I would just say "That's sweet, but that's Sweden: poeple from Sweden are swedish." They would get so embarrased, and I felt bad, but it had to happen.

Anyways, about my trip. I am super nervous. My visa hasn't come in yet, and I feel that I might have to marry a Swiss man just to be able to stay in the country to go to school....haha! I'm just axcited to go to school. I'm a nerd, but when school starts, I get so excited! The first couple of weeks of school, I just get really organized and read and do homework every night to be on top of my game, but then after that I'm just thinking "When in the hell is this semester going to be OVER??!!!" Ha! Anyways, I'm going to make a promise to write on this blog more because....ya.

Anywho, ummmm ya that's about all I wanted to write so byyyyyye!!!!
