Kel, outbound to Paraguay
As you are heading into your new countries that will become your new home and things start to become easier you have to remember about time.
My exchange has gone by so fast and its probably because I have had the best time of my life on my exchange and I can't have asked for a better country to spend a year in. Paraguay has captured me by the heart and has shaken my whole world.
Yes it is a different culture and language but the people you meet and the things you experience will change you forever and I couldn't have asked for a better 10 months of my life.
As you are sitting in the interview chair sweating as I did a little too much but you think "If I get this 10 months is a long time" at the welcome home dinner and all the former outbound's tell you it goes by fast and you think they are crazy because you are worried about what to do and what not to do and the language barrier. Just relax and it will all come in time.
One of the trips I took was the best two weeks of my whole entire life and all of you will experience a moment where you feel so happy and you are so immersed in the culture you forget your an exchange student you forget you're one of the girls from Gainesville, Florida.
In closing my time has gone by so fast and my last 17 days are going to go by even quicker. I love Paraguay for its uniqueness and its never ending love from the people of Paraguay. Your country will capture your heart as Paraguay has captured mine.
