I have at long last decided on a permanent name and URL for my blog! Take note of the URL, particularly the hyphens. If you think it's too long, I encourage you to bookmark the page.
New developments in my Romanian journey:
1. I have applied for a renewed passport. It was very irritating that I had to pay the extra fee since it was my first adult passport. I had a passport before but was just under 15 when I got it. I was very sad to part with the extra $25.
2. My Romanian friends with whom I work have been teaching me new words and phrases, as well as correcting my pronunciation and spelling. By the end of the summer I hope I will have speaking skills good enough to get me through stores, restaurants, and public transportation successfully!
3. I am unofficially leaving the US for Romania on September 27th. I haven't bought my plane ticket yet, but that's the date I am planning to fly!
4. We will be having a sending off party on September 17th. Everyone who knows me well enough to be a Facebook friend or have my phone number is welcome to come, as are family members. Details may be obtained by request via personal correspondence.
