Reality is setting in. Acceptance letter received, slowly getting the cash together, starting a blog, planning, thinking spinning. I deffinitly cannot wait.
Fall is marching on and I only have a month left of this semester. Soon winter will be here, and the whirlwind of packing and preparing will begin. I have lots to learn and plan before I go. I am torn between researching everything, and just jumping in blind. I believe I will need to find a balance. I need to research enough to get a lot out of the trip, but I will also need to relax and live in the moment. I cannot rush the experience by over-planning and being underwhelmed by the extraordinary.
I will learn to stop and smell the flowers.
