"This has all been wonderful, but now I'm on my way"

I obtained my visa with no hang-ups, I was able to leave Morehead City with no hitches... Everyone talks about how much they will miss me, etc. It's nice that people like me enough to miss me, but it also makes me feel bad to hear them say it. Yes, I will miss them too, but I am eager to leave. This is not the end of my summer. It is prelude to a new adventure. I have mixed emotions of excitement, joy, bliss, anxiety, and nostalgia.

My departure is TEN DAYS AWAY!!! I can only hope that while I am away from the Americas, everyone I love and care for will do great things for themselves.

I plan to write again soon.

time to, prepare to jump...

I leave Morehead City in three days. I plan to spend time with my brother and parents before I leave in less than fifteen days. Tonight, I decided to drink some brandy and pay attention to my blog (sort of).

Everyone asks me if I am super-excited about my trip...or if everything is 'surreal' to me right now. Yes, I am excited- but it is the kind of excitement that come in 'waves.' I don't know if that makes sense, but I am so happy to go somewhere new, yet I realize that I have NO IDEA what I am in for. I am on edge, hoping that everything will work out. That says it all.
Put yourself in my shoes- imagine moving to a city with over 12,000,000 people and signs that don't even used romanized letters. Well, it's not all that serious. I will be laughing at myself for most of the way anyway.
