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!

Lovely Links

I have found some pretty cool gems this week on the interwebs, and have shared most of these links with a lot of my friends already. Feel free to leave a comment with your favourite internet find this week! Here are a few that I’ve been frequenting lately:
  • These statistics were just too interesting to not post! Do everyday twitter users have longer relationships? And does your diet have anything to do with oral sex frequency? Too cool!

  • These absolutely gorgeous photos of ballerinas in striking urban settings. I showed this to my brother’s ballerina girlfriend and she absolutely loved them.
  • Thinking about doing a big (or even small!) travel around the world, or a new place, in the near future? Check out these 6 Tips To Travel┬áby an experienced world traveller.
  • I laughed out loud at this video! If you wished you were at Coachella last weekend, and have a similar sense of humour to me (as well as most people on the internet), check out Funny or Die’s hilarious movie on Jeff Goldblum at Coachella.
  • This post really opens your eyes to the reality of how others really see you, and how to accept this information without obsession.
  • My amazing friend back in Australia made this lovely video on youtube this week. Damien Rice + painting = chill. Check it out.
