Alright so I’m a sentimental sack of shit. Like, seriously. It can literally immobilize me in my bed when I think about anyone/anything/anywhere that I will miss while I’m abroad. I didn’t prepare or think about how much I’m going to miss everyone. It’s all going to hit me like a tidal wave once I board that plane.
I’m just lying here at 2am the night before my first solo flight. In 24 hrs, I will be flying over the Atlantic Ocean to London. In two days, I will be getting on the ship that will be my home for next four months.
I don’t think people understand how sentimental I am. I’m not necessarily sad, but more nostalgic for things to come and for things that have passed. Nearly everything has so much meaning to me. I get attached really easily to things and it is something I need to tone down. When I tell you I’ll miss you, I will truly really miss you over this semester.
Spending the rest of my night watching the movie that inspired it all: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Don’t laugh at me.
It’s nearly time for my newest adventure. I was born to travel the world, I just know it.
There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.
Hello hello! Welcome to the Captain’s Blog.
I’m going to be mostly using this blog for my study abroad adventure (if I can keep up with it…) and I’m so happy to have you join me! Originally I created this blog for my journalism class but I decided to continue it for more of my travel adventures. Which I do expect to be abundant throughout my life. Everything’s better written down right? I’ll get to relive my memories again through these nonsensical but hopefully eloquent posts.
I’ll be traveling with Semester at Sea on the MV Explorer for the Fall Semester. 115 days. 15 countries. 17 cities.
Internet access will be severely lacking over the next semester but feel free to email me: email@example.com
Nine more days!
This and my email is how you lovely people will be able to keep up with my oversea adventures. :)
There’s so much to do in so little time. I’m a bit nervous. Nonetheless it’s nearly time for my newest adventure.
I’m done. All my study abroad fees, as of today but after UCSB Financial Aid receives my paperwork, are paid.
All I need now is a credit card to link to my account, finish buying books and get my visas back. Maybe find some extra cash to spend on adventures. I’ll post my travel blog soon. : )
16 more days.
