I am learning Icelandic!
I'm going to start taking lessons, or whatever you'd like to call them, tomorrow with Johann Eyfells, an internationally renowned sculptor living in my town! It's going to be so great learning Icelandic from an actual Icelander, rather than listening to youtube videos of it and trying to read it from my Icelandic books.
I was really tired of seeing my shirt designs when I opened my blog.
Anyways, I found the other person going with me to Iceland!
I was told there was another person, but not who, and they barely hinted that this person was female. The only thing I heard about her was that "she didn't near live you."
I emailed some coordinators at AFS and they couldn't tell me who it was, obviously, without her consent. They said they would give her my email, but I don't think that happened... unfortunately.
So I was looking at the Sponsor an AFSer and I was looking through the blogs to see how much other students have raised (honestly, I was looking for her, but don't tell anyone!), and came across her blog (well, it was the only one that mentioned Iceland). I got her email from her blogger profile, then added her on facebook like a total creeper. But hopefully not too much.
Anyways, I got really excited when I found her. That is all.
Her name is Margot (and honestly I still don't know how to pronounce it).
