Hi! I'm Alyssa. I'm 16 and I'm from Renton, Washington. On August 23rd I will be heading off to Cholet, France, to live for the next year. I will be attending a private school that I know almost nothing about and I'm entirely not ready. I suppose I'm as ready as I'll ever be, but it doesn't seem like thats enough. The best I can do for now is find time to do laundry, make sure I have everything I need and watch a lot of French movies. Hopefully diving into this head first won't be too difficult.
