Countdown to departure!


I am leaving the United States in five…four…three…two…one days! It hasn’t really sunk in yet that I will be away from family, friends, pets, my apartment, and the US for four+ months. However, I am so excited to be heading to the UAE and the American University of Sharjah. First, I get to travel to Cairo for a couple days orientation. From there, I’ll go to Sharjah for more orientating. I’ll be there until January 18!

I’m a little nervous. I don’t really know exactly what to expect upon landing since the Middle East is so different from the United States — obviously. I had my friends come shopping with me to purchase some clothes that are more Middle East appropriate. I’ll post some pics!

I’m still pulling some last minute things together before I leave. Taking the GRE on the 31st, and going on a last-minute mini family vacay to an aquarium and to do some shopping. I haven’t even started packing yet! đŸ˜€

Anyhow, more to come when I actually arrive in Sharjah!
