Hey fellow MacRumorians, since I am on the brink of temporary leave, I just wanted to post up my plans and situation. Apparently, several years ago my parents decided to take me out of school for a spring semester (I am in high school) and send me traveling around the world with my mom whilst being home schooled so I won't fall behind. I just found out recently that that time is...this Saturday! I am going to finish up my finals this week and on Saturday morning I'm off to Japan for 3 weeks. When I come back, I'll be here for about 2 weeks. Then I'm going to an Spanish Language Intensive school south of Mexico City for around 2 months. Hopefully by then I will be close to fluent. (I'll be in a Spanish speaking country surrounded by Spanish and in a Spanish Language school for 8 hours a day!) So I have that to look forward to. Once I return, I will stay for about 3 weeks taking STAR tests and the like, and then the final trip will be to Europe to visit my relatives. Most of my friends think I'm crazy when I say I'm essentially leaving school to go traveling, but I honestly am excited for it, as it is to me is a rare opportunity to not only (hopefully) learn Spanish, but see the world for decent periods of time... rather than the 5-day quickie Spring Break visit. I am a little saddened to miss anything that may go on here while I am gone, but hopefully when I look back I'll realize that it was well worth it. So, hopefully I will be able to occasionally browse the forums while out of the country, and maybe I can even send in some pictures. Is this just a little bit crazy or is it just me?
