Beginning the adventure

A little over one month until I board my flight to San Francisco and then I take off to Auckland, New Zealand. The anticipation is greater than I expected and it’s finally starting to set in. With my tuition paid for, tickets booked, dorm picked out and classes chosen, all that’s left is to wait for my visa application to be processed. It’s nerve-wracking and exciting all at the same time. The craziest part is going to be figuring out how to fit all of my life, for five months, into one 50 pound suitcase!
