I woke up this morning with severe heart palpitations, but don’t worry it was not because I was about to go into cardiac arrest; it was because of my overwhelming excitement. In less than 24 hours the thing that has been on my mind for the past couple of months will finally be here: the day our trip to Columbia University will begin! I cannot tell you how much effort it took me to maintain my excitement for the past week, so I veered my concentration to packing. Yes folks, I started packing a week early.
|Bye Panda :(|
So now that I am completely packed that just leaves for me to agonizingly wait for time to pass. I should also take this time to spend time with my family and my dog. This will be the first time that I will be away from them, and I have to say I am really nervous about. This will really test how independent I think am versus how independent I really am.
And now as I go to bed early to wake up at 3 AM, all I can think about is that for the next 4 weeks I will be away from the familiar surroundings of my room and the familiar faces that I have come so accustomed to. Being thrown into the east coast lifestyle will definitely be a culture shock, but it is one that I welcome with open arms.
