Today, after a long long long wait, I finally got that last email from Au Pair in America (APiA) that my application has been completely approved and that the matching process can begin. And not only that, but also that they have a family looking for a Dutch Au Pair that they’re sending my profile to directly. So who knows, if they decide to contact me things could be going extremely quickly now! I’ll be glued to my inbox.
Now excuse me while I party like it’s my birthday.
Seriously though, I was so stressed out. It was such a long time since I had heard anything and I was almost completely convinced that they saw something that created a problem with my application. What would that thing be? I have no idea. If you hit me dead as we Dutch would say (al sla je me dood – you could hit me to death and I still couldn’t tell you). Trust my brain to create problems where there are none. So I was extremely glad to hear that everything was alright and that I had officially been approved by all parties.
I will bake celebratory brownies.
I am officially – sooner or later – going to the US!
In other news, if you check in the widget section called ‘Check it Out‘ you see that there’s a new media player feature there. Right now it plays my friend Maia’s music. Click play to listen to her song Lemonade. It is brilliant and it speaks to me on a spiritual level. Also check out her Facebook, Twitter, Website and Soundcloud profile. You will not regret being witness to her awesomeness.
Now, to forth my friends, and frolic in the sunshine. Or rain. Depending on where you live. Anyway, enjoy yourself today. Today is a good day.
