A wee bit in denial

Hola todos!! 

Welcome to the wonderful world of Goldhammer’s thoughts. I am new to this whole blogging thing but it seems to be the thing to do when heading abroad so stay with me and I’ll try to keep you entertained.

Having spent the past three days living it up in Freddy with UMW friends, it is hard to believe that I will be spending the next semester in a different country. It has been so easy to slip back into the routine of hanging out constantly and strolling down campus walk. Aside from the fact that I currently have no class schedule or even a definite idea of what classes I will be taking, I can totally picture myself starting the semester here tomorrow. But alas, my future holds two days full of packing and organizing followed by a day and a half of traveling. Let’s go!

My flight plans include a quick trip from Baltimore to Philly, a long flight from Philly to Frankfurt, Germany, and then a final jaunt to Bilbao, España – my new home away from home. I am, of course, super excited to be starting this new chapter of my life and am starting to feel super grown up but I am also feeling slightly overwhelmed and apprehensive – guess that’s to be expected?? I know that I will miss the frisbee practices, trips to the nesty-poo, team dinners, and crazy study sessions. I will also miss having my family near by or just a phone call away but bring on the adventures… Europe here I come!!

Lots of Love,

Em
