*Inhales and slowly exhales with a deep ah.*
Just to think that in exactly a month I’ll begin embarking on the craziest, most daring adventure of my life thus far. I’ll be over 2,000 miles away from the closest person to me, my mom. But, on the bright side, I’ll be experiencing an entirely new culture in a language that I don’t normally speak on a daily basis. Speaking of language, I think that it’s time for me to really start brushing up on my Spanish. Sigh. The last thing I want is to be using present tense (the easiest Spanish tense of a verb) for everything I say even when I’m talking about something of either the past or future. Haha.
I’m completely torn between two emotions right now – anxiousness and nervousness. I’m anxious to leave and get out of the big city already and be somewhere tropical. I mean who wouldn’t want to go to school everyday in a tropical climate close to the equator. I’m so over the big city hustle (and not to mention MTA’s constant mass transit delays). On the other hand, I’m nervous about adjusting to such a different language. I mean don’t get me wrong, I think my Spanish is pretty good for a non-native but sometimes I just can’t keep up. Haha.
But, I think as of now my anxiousness is overpowering my nervousness. I’ve already started packing when my best friend who leaves for Italy 2 weeks before me hasn’t even started yet. Then again, I definitely feel like I might forget something important. Nonetheless, I’m extremely ecstatic to say that I have nothing but a short month left in New York before I am in rainy, green, and eco-friendly Costa Rica. 🙂
