Lookie here! :D

I hope I can post this without being in trouble. Jóhann Eyfells is an Icelandic sculptor who is quite renowned in Iceland and worldwide. His work was displayed at the 20th Olympiad!

Well, that is all. No significant news.

Vertu blessaður!

Let's Play The Waiting Game

And so it begins. The waiting game.

I went to my first official AFS event (it was a potluck after the orientation for all the students staying in my chapter). I met the volunteers I've been talking with the past couple weeks, and met a lot of the exchange students staying here. They were all really friendly, in case you were wondering.

I had a good time going up there and meeting people. But more about the game (you lost it).

I learned that since I applied oh so early (oh, 5 months or so early), I may not hear back whether I was accepted or not until JANUARY. Oh the agony.

Closer and Closer

I'm going to keep this short(er). I am fully applied now, and am waiting on my results. The AFS volunteer that has been helping me through the process has been great, and I want to thank you. Takk fyrir, Marc!

So, yeah, that's it really. I'm just waiting to see if I'm accepted by AFS-USA and AFS-Iceland. I don't think there should be many problems, but now I need to set up my in-home interview.

K, bye.

Help me out in new ways!

I have new ways for you guys to help me out, and also a way for kids who like to have some fun at the 808 to contribute to me by paying no more than they usually do!

If you want to send me money by check, or just hand it to me in person, that's fine! Don't think the web form is the only way to help me out!

If any of you guys want my address, feel free to e-mail me at any time!
I appreciate either method, but I only keep 97% of whats given to me over the web.

So, more about the kids that like to have some fun. A few weeks ago, the 808 Dance Club offered to make me a deal to help me out, and I haven't done my job of advertising as well as I can, so here I am! For every $10 entrance fee, they proposed to donate 10% of anyone's entrance fee that mentioned my name to me! That means that if you go into the dance club and mention my name, that gives me $1! Get a big group of friends to go, because it helps me out, and it helps me out!

Remember, big groups are more fun! But don't worry, the 808 is a safe place, there are no drugs or alcohol on the premises, and anyone over 21 isn't allowed in on the nights that teens are allowed. The bouncer even goes out into the parking lot every couple of minutes to see if anyone bad's in the parking lot. It's completely safe and fun!
Check them out online, or stop by the dance club right as you enter into Kerrville going from Fredericksburg!

Takk fyrir! Bless bless!
