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 🙂

Until then…

T-Minus 5….and counting

Well, Memorial Day Weekend is officially over, and that means that I am 5 days away from leaving (on a jet plaaane, don’t know when I’ll be back again…). Anyway, it’ll be a busy next few days with work, packing and cleaning my room (which currently looks as if a tornado has hit it). Should be fun. …

Might as well keep this first post short and sweet. I guess I should say the obligatory “stay tuned!” to all of my readers, for lots of good stories will be coming your way via this blog! 🙂 I hope you all make your own account to comment and give me your email and home addresses so that I can stay in touch!

Until next time…
