This is how I feel right now! In a good way of course!
I got great news from my host family yesterday! They recieved my stamped contract from the DIRECTTE already, after only dropping it off less than a week ago! The two copies of the contract along with my confirmation of enrollment in my French lessons are on their way to me right now. I wasn’t expecting everything to actually run so smoothly and fast considering the amount of problems I’ve been having with the process so far. Now I need to get my act together and collect the rest of my required documents to send to the consulate in Montreal, hopefully by next week!
- Need to get two pictures taken for my application. Apparently the size of the photos needs to be smaller than a typical passport picture so I’m going to have to go to a specialty store..( more money spent …)
- Have to purchase an XPRESSPOST envelope to go along with my application so that my passport and other important things will be returned to me!
- I seriously need to sit down and figure out what clothes and items I am taking with me. I have this brand new Roots puffer jacket that I want to bring but obviously it’s not realistic because #1. It’s huge #2. I would look so out of place in Paris.
Only 55 Days until my adventure abroad begins!
