Hey everyone!! Sorry about the delay but I have been trying to get things figured out the last couple of days, but things are finally getting sorted out. I unfortunatly do not have internet in my dorm, but the beauty of it makes it even. I will have to upload pictures soon (once I get the internet situation figured out).  Pictures I think will not do it justice though. On a more academic note, I took my placement test this morning and will begin the language courses tomorrow. The test was sort of hard, but luckily it is not for a grade : ) I am about to go to the store and look for things to buy for my dorm! I will have pictures soon!!!! Tschuess

Well, It is finally time to depart for wonderful Europa. After a full day of checking, double checking and triple checking my luggage, and a little period of wanting to kick my suitcases when they would hardly zip, I am ready!!! I leave at 10am and have a 3 hour layover in Dallas, then straight to Frankfurt. I will wait at the airport for my other OU friends to arrive (possibly a trip into downtown Frankfurt with a friend while we wait for the final person), then off to Heidelberg. I usually cannot sleep while flying so there is a good chance that I will be very very tired when I arrive, then have another 12 hours worth of stuff to do :(. First blog from Heidelberg soon to come!!!!

It seems impossible that the time is already almost here for me to depart to Germany. It seems like only last week that I was stressing over where to go and all of the paperwork that needed to be done. Well with the choice made and the paperwork not nearly as difficult as expected, I cannot wait to finally arrive in Heidelberg, Germany. Luckily I have almost everything on my list completed!! The only thing that remains is to pack and leave :). The 6 days that remain are going to kill me possibly. The classes I will take once there do not really worry me……yet. Strangely, the only thing on my mind is where my dorm will be and how it will look. Heidelberg Universitaet was originally founded in 1386 and is the oldest university in Germany, so like many other universities in Europe that are old, there is not one central campus location. So my dorm could be multiple miles away from my classroom, but I am looking forward to the walking and sightseeing along the way!

Well I think this is a good start to my first blog on OU BlogAbroad!! I leave this Sunday (the 28th) and will be updating you all on life in Germany very soon (as soon as I wake up from jet lag haha)!!
