Beginning to freak OUT.

Alright…the countdown is on. I have sixteen days. 17 more hours to work at BFRS (ok, it’s making me MUCH sadder than I expected.). Approx 18 million errands to run. Only 100 lbs of my life to take with me to Spain (inlcuding teaching supplies and a 6lb bag of American candy). I won’t have any income until October at the earliest. Yeah, I’d saying I’m stressing out a little. Everyone says, “I’m so excited for you,” or, “You’ll have the time of your life.” But it’s going to be hard. I’m not used to change. I get lonely really easily. Sometimes I need my mom to straighten things out for me. Hell, I don’t even know where my school is located, much less where my bank and gas station is. I know everything will fall into place eventually, but this is all happening tooooooo fast for me to handle. It’s like my brain is going a hundred kilometers a minute, but I have no idea how many miles a minute that is.

Helen and I leave on Sept 12 for Granada, and the rest of the trip will be: Seville, Gibraltar, Lagos or Faro or straight to Lisbon, Evra, Barcelona, Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Malaga and back to Granada for orientation. Pretty ambitious, but I’m looking forward to spending time with her and seeing some of Spain I javen’t seen yet. Still on my list is Ronda, Santiago de Compostela, Figueres and tons of other foreign countries. Also, I applied ot be a student travel writer for cafeabroad.com and got the job. I’ll be responsible for updating a city travel guide, writing first-person narratives about my experiences and meeting with two other students to work on longer, third-person invesitigative pieces. Kick ass. Clips plus Spain? Nice moves.
