My first post!

Hey everyone! So I decided to start a blog since I will very soon be leaving the country and I know you all will want to know what is going on with me. I leave for Sarajevo on May 5th. I am so excited and totally scared! If you dont know the whole story about my move to Bosnia, I will fill you in. During my last semester at school I got in contact with a women who wanted to open a Montessori preschool in Sarajevo. We communicated through email for a few months and eventually I made the decesion to accept a job offer as a teacher. I will be teacing 3-6 year old children. The school will be bilingual (English and Bosnian) so I wont have to learn the language, although I hope to. Everyone I talk to is very concerned about the fact that Bosnia recently was involved in a war. The war ended more than ten years ago and Sarajevo is a peaceful and safe city to visit and live in, so dont worry about me. I am making it a goal to keep up with my blog. I hope you will check it every once in a while to see what I am up to.

P.S. Download Skype if you want to talk to and see me. I have a webcam! My skype name is hails64.
