So, I had my interview two days ago for CBYX. It was a lot of fun -- many potential CBYXers came to Richmond for the group activities and later, the personal interviews. The group activities were a great way to get to know the other exchangers. We all had to write an acrostic poem using our names, to describe ourselves. For the record, my name is Fizzy.

Two Zs.

And a Y.
My poem ended up being... well, I'll let you decide for yourselves:

F- un
I- maginative
Z- any
Z- ??!?
Y- earn to learn.

UGH. Yearn to learn? (it was between that and Youthful, though. :P)

My personal interview, I think, went well. I can't tell, looking back on it, if I spoke in actual, coherent sentences or if I had massive, quality word vomit. Hard to tell. I guess I'll find out in April, when I find out if I made the program or not.

Hope you have a lovely day! I'll update probably next around April, to let you all know if I got the scholarship or not. ;) I am so excited!

Late update!

Hello everyone!

I just thought that I'd write to tell you all that, since my last post, I've accomplished quite a lot, including:

Chosen a country (Germany!!)
Chosen an organization (CBYX)
Submitted application to organization
Gotten a confirmation email from CBYX, saying that I'm going on to round 2 of the application process, which includes an interview. No problem. I am confident that I will do well.

Germany is my first choice of a country, regardless of whether I get into CBYX. If I don't get accepted, I'm still going to Germany. Somehow. I love the country. Fascinating history with vibrant culture.

I'm pumped! =)

With love,
