Although as I write this, I haven’t left my house yet (flight is at 6 pm..the countdown begins!) I can already say one of the definite perks of studying abroad in the Fall is having the whole summer to prepare. An organized student can really take advantage of the summer months to research, brush up on their Italian, pack ahead of time, and plan out trips and excursions.
Which I did!
…Okay, not really. But I’ve always been more of the “spontaneous adventure” type rather than “plan everything ahead of time”.
Now that today is THE DAY, my feelings are a little more like this:
Am I ready? Maybe.
I know this is going to be an unforgettable, life-changing 3 1/2 months. I can’t wait for it to begin!
