It’s official.

My bags are packed, my boarding pass is printed, and I am hours away from leaving for the airport.  I can’t believe this is happening.

I have been consumed by so many different feelings this week—excitement, homesickness, ambition, skepticism…  But right now, I just feel anxious.  Not necessarily the bad kind.  It’s more like anticipation for what’s to come.

Before today, I was worried that I was unprepared to go abroad.  The more I think about it, though, I don’t think that anyone can feel truly prepared for an experience like this.  As much as I can read about a new culture, there is no way to truly understand it until I’m living in it.  By the end of the semester, I hope that I can say that I have done just that.

I will document my adventures as often as I can with photos and ramblings (and maybe an occasional video).

Goodbye, America!
