Well. Whether I like it or not, my semester abroad is starting in less than a month. Obviously I am incredibly excited to spend 4 months in a country that I’ve always wanted to visit and I feel very fortunate to have been able to put this trip together, but I am still really nervous. It’s hard to put into words why I am so scared about leaving. Maybe it’s leaving my friends and family behind, maybe its being in airports by myself, or maybe I’m not even nervous and I just don’t know how to properly feel excited, but a feeling of uneasyness has been rushing through me since October every time I think about leaving.
I’ve been taking care of more pre-departure tasks such as ordering a PicCell phone so that I can communicate without wireless internet, and asking my traveling father to borrow his secure passport holder that loops around my belt. You can never be too careful
People have been asking me what the weather will be like in Granada and how I’m going to pack. My response is always, “I don’t know, I’ve never been there”, but now I’m beginning to question the weather myself, as I will eventually begin packing. I’ve attached a picture of the average weather, but I’m not taking that too seriously because the “average” weather of Massachusetts isn’t that accurate compared to the weather we have either. So for anyone who was wondering, please see the picture of the average weather.
“Weather” I like it or not, my semester abroad is rapidly approaching, and I’m thrilled to start sharing my experiences with you.
