Our EF experience!

Hi!

2 weeks ago I went to Switzerland to visit my friend Géraldine. We decided to make a video about our experience with EF. We have our own opinions and luckily everything went well. Go check it out! 🙂

Lots of love,

The exchange student tag!

Hey! 

Are you interested in becoming an exchange student? Or do you maybe know someone who would be interested in spending a year abroad? Let me know! 🙂 

Me and my friend Jasper did the exchange student tag. We basically just answer 10 common questions to exchange students. I will still continue my youtube channel with videos like this, tips and tricks for exchange students or vlogs. I hope you enjoy!

 

Lots of love,

Leaving home to go home again

Hey,

This is probably one of the hardest things I’ve ever dealt with in my life. Saying goobye to someone so special to you, not knowing when you’ll see them again.
I waited a little while to make this video, just because for some reason I couldn’t do it earlier. I was an emotional unstable person for a little while, every time I would think of my exchange year. But now I’m getting a little better. I miss my Kentucky home a lot, I always will, but I will have to make the best of whatever is coming in life. So I’m glad to say that I have made some videos to remember my exchange year at the best. 🙂 I hope you enjoy!

Oh, and I made another video a few weeks ago. I didn’t post it here because I forgot… So that’s why there are 2 videos.

 

 

Lots of love,

The last day of school & graduation

Hey,

I don’t really have an good excuse for uploading this video so late… I’m sorry. The next video will be sooner! So my high school part of my high school exchange year is over now. It’s crazy how fast this year flew by. I couldn’t wish for a better year here in Kentucky. My friends are the best, they even organized a graduation just for us exchange students! (because we couldn’t walk with our real graduation ceremony) I’m lucky to say that I can stay a little longer and enjoy my summer in Kentucky. I hope you enjoy the video.

A day in my life, PROM 2K16!

AMERICAN PROM, CHECK.

Hi, 
Prom was an amazing experience. It was a bit stressful but we all made it a really fun day. I am so happy with the group I went, I couldn’t ask for a better time. Experiencing the real American prom was always a dream of me and I am happy to say that it was as good as I thought it would be. It makes me sad at the same time, because it’s almost the end of the school year. But at least we can say that we (almost) end the school year with a bang!

 

 

Being in the prom committee, having an amazing group of friends to go with, dressing up, taking 100000 pictures, the sun was shining, waking up early… etc. I couldn’t have wished for a better day. This video just summarizes the day that I had. I am really lucky, because I could go to 2 proms this year. 🙂 I had a blast with both and this is making my experience even greater.

—I know a lot of people want a date for prom, because it’s American. But please don’t worry about that because there were some people in our group who didn’t have a date, and they still had a blast. Going with friends is a lot easier anyway, but if you have a date, or not, it either way is a lot of fun. I jusst wanted to say this to (future) exchange students, because I know some stressed out a little with not having a date. Please don’t. Because it is mostly for the pictures but you will take a lot of group pictures anyway. It’s a day to remember either way. 🙂 —

Here are some of the pictures we took. And btw, before you question why we took prom pictures with a goat.. Well, the goat was named after me so I just had to take some pictures with my namesake Linda the goat.

These memories will last forever. I love them all so much! I wish every country could do it like this. 🙂

 

Lots of love,

Showing Kentucky to my biological parents! 

My parents are coming to Kentucky today!!!!
I am so excited, it has been 9 months since I’ve seen them. Of course we skype, like once a week, but I guess that you can understand that that is totally different. I can finally hug them and show them around where I’ve lived these couple of months. Only my mom and dad are coming. My brother and sister are staying home because they couldn’t manage to miss school. So we will come back one day in the future and then I will show my brother and sister around in Kentucky.

 My parents will stay here for 3 weeks! So we have a lot to do, which is good because I have a lot to show them. We’ll see all the wonderful things that Kentucky has to offer. And of course I am going to show them my school. They want to go to Tennessee and I would love to go with them, but I don’t know if I can figure something out, because the problem is that I don’t have vacation or anything.. So maybe I will just miss some days of school.. Maybe 🙂 (But stay in school kids.) I will let all of you know how it went somehow, maybe through a video or maybe with another blog post, we’ll see. I’m writing this in class right now, but after school me and my host family are going to drive up to Cincinnati to pick my parents up! I can’t wait! 😀

This is just a short quick little update, I will probably (if the footage is good) upload a video of all of this too. I haven’t made a new video in a while, which I really want to do but my laptop, phone, and iPod are all full….. (TOO MANY VIDEOS URGH..)
Lots of love,

Linda
