"Dun Dun Dun. Another one bites the dust!"

Let's be honest- I am pretty terrified about what is going to happen in the next 4-5 months. For me, things really weren't sinking in. Until Melly left. And then Mike left. And today Drew left. Tomorrow Dem leaves. Everyone else is back in school. It's just me, my mom, and the dogs. I think having all of this extra time is causing me to overthink.

When I'm not freaking out, I'm pretty darn excited. Buenos Aires is one of those incredible, "once in a lifetime" opportunities, that a girl just cannot pass up. Kinda like going to NYU- new city, new people, new campus. Except this time it'll all be in Spanish. : )

As much as I hate to admitt it, I really needed a break from New York, and everything it held. Don't get me wrong- I do not for one minute take the last two years of my life for granted. It's been a great experience, in a amazing city, with some people I really love. But I was ready for a change. Change of pace and scenery. And let's face it, when I get back to New York, things are going to be quite different. : ( Going abroad and learning how to readjust (again) will really be helpful.

So right now, the goal is to focus on the positive. I'm working on a puzzle (haha), have some books to read, some work to do around the house, lots of family in Flint, and some friends too. I have three more weeks to prepare to live in a completely different way for a semester. And I really am excited.
