I have been waiting for this trip for what feels like an eternity (almost four months), and it is finally here! It just hours away, yet it still doesn't feel real to me. Maybe it will finally sink in once I am on the plane. I'm ready for dorm living, campus tours, a different time zone, meeting new people, and the East Coast!
This whole week I have been asked how I'm feeling in regards to this trip, but I honestly don't know. I'm excited of course, but that's not really a new feeling. I've been excited since March 5th, the day of the interview for this program. So, I guess how I really feel right now is a bit scared. Scared that I will enjoy it, meet many wonderful people, and make amazing memories. Those are good things right? Why am I scared you ask? Well, when you're enjoying yourself, time tends to pass by rather quickly. Pretty soon this trip will be nothing but a memory. So my lovely cohort, let's make it an unforgettable memory.
