According to what my interviewer told me two days prior to the submission of my complete application, I snagged one of the six spots that were left in Belgium! I just received the email today informing me that I will be spending the 2011-2012 school year eating chocolate, drinking beer, and learning French. Excitement does not accurately describe what I was feeling when my mom texted me at school to let me know that I had been accepted. THANK YOU AFS for this opportunity. If anyone is in same boat as me (going to Belgium), or quite literally on the same plane as me for departure in August, I'd love to get in touch with you! If you run across my blog, please don't hesitate to leave me a comment. I can't wait to meet all of you! I'll be back with updates as they come. I have a feeling the wait to find out my host family will be much more painful then the one I have just overcome.
