Excitement!

Okay, can we pause for a moment and take in how EXCITING this day has been for me?!

I applied almost two months ago to go on a semester abroad through my University in Guatemala (think: living with a host family, learning Spanish, traveling there with with a group of ~20 students from my University, etc. etc.).

Today I found out that I was accepted! I am just ecstatic, and so unbelievably excited for next January, when I’ll be going!

I know that in a matter of time (days? weeks? months?) I will start freaking out…Living with a host family? Living in a developing country? Being taught some courses by Guatemalan professors? And the organizing will cause headaches (visas, immunizations, flight plans). Additionally, this will only further complicate/provide further challenges for my already long-distance relationship (assuming I’m still in one next year!). Domestic long-distance will become international long-distance…oh, the joys of being young!

Nonetheless, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me, and I am so grateful for it! I will keep updating as things progress!
