To start the weekend...

Being separated from your loved one isn't easy and we could all use some advice and creative tips on how to make it just a little bit easier.  FSI developed a course focused on maintaining and strengthening long distance relationships.  I took the two and half hour course last year and thought it was not only helpful, but also entertaining and fun.  You will have the opportunity to hear from others who are preparing for or are experiencing time apart and learn what has and hasn't worked for them.   The course is being offered next Wednesday, Feb. 29th. at FSI so sign up today!  Email FSITCTraining@state.gov to enroll.
