I’m here! Currently sitting in my room at the Jeppesen’s house, thinking that this has been the longest day of my life. But so far so good. I already met some cool DIS people on the plane to Copenhagen and the hellish registration/check-in that lasted from 7am to noon. It was great to share our fears and concerns with each other, to realize that they are exactly the same. I have no doubt that I will make countless friends when I’m here, and be able to get out of my cozy home-stay lifestyle. Speaking of which, my host family is amazing. They are so nice and understanding, I feel at home here. It’s almost as though I’m not even in Europe right now.
I would love to go on and on about my first moments here in Denmark but honestly I’m too exhausted to think coherently enough to do so. Right now I need to get my butt out of my room and help the family cook. I think Nadja’s boyfriend is here. I don’t know if I can handle meeting more new people. Can I just sleep forever??

I emailed you my address, hopefully you can send it to me that way. Yay mail! And yes my family speaks English fluently except for one of the daughters who speaks a little broken English. They are awesome 🙂
