I got the email yesterday. I'll be spending the next 10 months of my life living with a host family in Senegal, Africa. And it is honestly a dream come true. I can't believe it. I can't wait. I'm ecstatic. My dream is 45 days away. It's unreal. I'm walking on air. 

Senegal is absolutely gorgeous, I've always been SO intrigued by African culture, and I get to learn

I've decided that my favorite word is IMMERSE. And that is exactly what I'm going to do. Immerse myself in their culture and my surroundings. Soak in every single little thing. I've been dreaming of making this trip happen for 8 years, and it's really happening.

 It's not a vacation, it's work. But that's what I want. It's REAL. I am living there, with a family. in a home. I'm becoming a local, living the life. I'm so excited to learn. Ahh this is such a dream.
