“Adventure is Out There!” – preparing for my trip of a lifetime

So, the day is finally here; the day before I leave for Ireland and I am absolutely losing my mind. I am so beyond excited I don’t even have words for it and yet at the same time I still don’t feel like this is really happening to me. I cannot even seem to process that all of the stress of this last week (and really the last semester) will actually amount to me boarding a plane that will land in DUBLIN, IRELAND. It is still not real life, yet I am sprawled out all over my living room floor with jeans, and shirts, and toiletries, and blankets, ect. ect. I still feel like I have so many things to do and I am nervous about how the flight and customs will go once I land, but I am trying to focus on spending as much time with my family as possible. Although I go away to school, I always know I am just a bus ride back home however that will certainly not be the case after tomorrow. I know I am going to miss my family and my dog very very much and it is going to be pretty hard to say goodbye to them, but I feel better knowing that I will be able to skype them and we will still be in touch. I can’t wait to see what Ireland and the people there have in store for me!! So on that note, there is packing that needs to be done so I will let y’all know how everything goes!
