A new year.
A new adventure.
A new blog.
Last time I restarted a blog was 2007, 2006, or something. I was writing about going to Switzerland on exchange. I was nervous, excited, and ready for a new adventure.
"But these emotions are so weird. I mean, it's so crazy looking at my house and my stuff and saying, "see you in a year!" And I just can't get over the emotions. Any emotions of saddness and regret have not entered my brain..." "...I just think forward and I'm so excited and in awe that I really don't have anything to be worried about."

Well, it seems like I'm drawn to experinces like that. Up for an adventure.
Hello, my name is Mägi and I'm going to Switzerland for the next year. I am going back to Switzerland, my home for a year.
Now get your notepad out and take note, here are the details:
- I will be living in the town of Arzier, near Nyon.
- It is in the French part of Switzerland - 20 minutes from France.
- My host family has two children, a 7 year old girl and a 3 year old boy.
I will be an au pair. An au pair? Is that some French word? Why yes, indeed it is. It's another word for something of a nanny. It's menaing is something on the page of "equal to." It's a relationship with a win win situation. I'm something of a domestic housekeeper and nanny, but as pay, not only do I get money but I get room and board in a foreign country. Whoo hoo! Culture!
I guess I'd have to say, I'm excited.
Yes, indeed, I am quite excited.
