So last week I heard that I was accepted to a study abroad program in Brussels, Belgium! I'm super excited, but now that I have the list of things to do and their due dates, I'm becoming a little nervous. The cost also caught me off guard a little bit. I know the euro is stronger than the dollar, and it would make sense that a trip to Europe would cost more, I just didn't put two and two together.
I'm really glad that I'll have this opportunity to study abroad next fall, but it's also a little hard. It will be my senior year and I'll miss somethings, like voting in my first presidential election (I know I can vote absentee, but that isn't the same!), missing homecoming my senior year, and mostly just missing those last few times of hanging out with friends. I don't really know what's to come, but world, here I come!
Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe.
Pools of sorrow waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind,
Possessing and caressing me.
