The big day is finally almost here. Can you believe it?! – I can’t. I’m sitting on my bed right now, unsure of what to do next. Fill out visa paperwork? Begin packing my duffel? Clean/organize my room? Write a somewhat pointless blogpost? Stare aimlessly around my room? I think you can figure out what I’m actually doing versus what I should be doing.
The reality of things is starting to hit me: I’m about to live in Europe for a year. And I won’t be taking classes the whole time, I’ll be working for a lot of it. I’ll be back at Christmas so it’s not like I’m completely freaking out, having second thoughts, etc. but it’s just kind of crazy. I drove home from Ann Arbor today (after celebrating Hilary’s 21st bday!) and it was the last time I’ll be doing that for a year. I said goodbye to friends I won’t see face-to-face until Christmas and it’s…. just wow. This is big.
My “To Do List” for tomorrow is long and daunting – it is scaring me more than actually flying to Germany on Saturday! I was never good at getting things done in a timely manner, and now I’m paying the price.
Anyway, I guess I should start this paperwork. My next post, I predict, will be from Freiburg 🙂
