1 Week!!!

I leave in one week and I couldn't be more excited! I will hopefully be able to see Yuri, the girl from Suwa that my family hosted in March at the airport. I miss her and all the other girls we've hosted so much! It'll be great if I do get to see her there. I leave on the 17th and fly to LA, and from there we go as a group to Tokyo. Time has flown right by since March and I still feel unprepared, but at the same time I'm excited. I'm a little nervous because I know I won't be able to understand anyone but I think I'll have fun while nodding and smiling nonetheless. Akita, here I come!
