Sorry Sorry Sorry

Ok So I know it's been a while since I last posted. First I was traveling, and I went and had a very very lovely time in Gujrat, which is a neighboring state, and I saw a very exciting desert festival there, and then I came home and was being lazy (also nothing exciting happened so no point in blogging) and then I was caught up in depression being away from Home and family during Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years and didn't feel like doing ANYTHING and then there was once again nothing happening, and then I switched families and I was staying in the middle of nowhere with a rather orthodox family who had no computer, but then I went CRAZY and spontaneously moved out and was living with my friend Gwen, who's from Germany (I swear she's a gift from heaven, I'm sure I drove her crazy but she let me stay anyways) and FINALLY I shifted into a new family, the Namjoshi's, who live within walking distance of my first family. And I'm finally all settled in and happy and everything.

Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with my camera and uploading pictures. As soon as I can do that, I promise that there will be a mega huge giant blog post detailing my activities since the beginning of November. For the time being, I'm just settled in. Not much exciting is going on - just kind of a day to day life. I get up, go to college, and then mostly just hang out with friends, go to a dance class at 3:00 (Exchange students have to learn an Indian dance for the upcoming Rotary District Conference in February) that's done by 5:00 and then I'm home to just hang out, read, watch TV, average things any teenager does. I was having some difficulties, but life goes on. Not living with the family I was placed in before this has helped, and also got through with some arguments with friends, as well as just continuing to try for a positive attitude. India continues to amaze me with it's beauty, and I couldn't be happier to be here. Pictures and details of my activities to come soon!
