Leaving in 9 hours

It's 7:00 am in NH right now, I am packing up the rest of my stuff. I think I should have everything but who knows. Rodger Federer just won the Ausie Open. The third set was the only challenge for him as it went into I think 18 tiebreaker points.
Leaving for the airport in 4 Hours. Right now I'm feeling more exhausted and still a little queazy from Friday night (Thanks a lot assholes) than excited.

This should be my last post from the states until I get back. So wish me luck and I'll see everyone in 12 weeks!

Counting down the days

Today is Wednesday, 3 days before I take off for France. I am getting really excited! I still haven't started a research paper that I need to finish before I leave the states, woops. It will get done, I'm not worried about it.
Today I exchanged for my first euros. I ordered 500 euro and had to pay $760. It would have been $740 but I had to pay for overnight shipping because I didn't oder them in time... stupid me.
That money will be going towards my "flat" deposit, key deposit, and keys... why do I have to pay two key fees you ask? I haven't a clue.
yeah.... exciting stuff right here!

Side note- Olympics start soon and I couldn't be more pumped. I really hope there is a place for us to watch the games while in France. I want to shout USA USA USA so badly.

Until next time....

Blogs suck

Blogs suck but I'm doing it for you, yes you.

Leaving in 12 days (January 31) from Boston. My last day of work is the 29th. I need to get all the money I can, the dollar sucks compared to the euro. However it is getting better. On 11/12 $4,000 = 2671 euros, on 1/10 $4,000 = 2774 euros, on 1/18 $4,000 = 2784 euros. Hopefully it keeps getting better while I'm over there, if not, I may be calling home for more money!

I encourage anyone to come and visit, I will be living in a small flat but I am sure we could make it work. Private beaches, indoor pools, tennis, and a casino (I think) right down the street! ha-ha
There a couple weeks not good to visit so contact me and double check!
Speaking of contacting me, Best way is by e-mail. I just recently created a new gmail address, I will of course still be on my AIM when I have internet. I also created a SKYPE account. my username for skype is Scott_Kirouac.

Thats all I can think of for now, I'll try to keep this updated for everyone while I'm over there.
