Nervous as cray about exchange, but also extremely excited! Sadly enough, or is it strangely enough?, I’m already feeling home-sick, despite the fact that I didn’t feel a drop of it during summer school. Perhaps I’m being over-dramatic but this past month has really taught me the importance of family, and my heart breaks thinking that I’m not going to be able to see 公公 or go back to Namly for the next six months.

Also very paranoid about running into trouble: on the bus, on the plane, during travels. But what’s life without some adventure, eh? Given that I’m also a bad judge of character, I’ll probably end up getting conned somehow somewhere. Joking — knock on wood!!

Less than 24h till I fly, the next six months are going to be nothing short of extraordinary.
