Getting ready to study abroad!
So it's June 15th and I'm sitting in my room thinking I have NO IDEA what to pack. I'm studying abroad in the United Kingdom this summer from July 2nd to August 27th at the University of Sussex, in Brighton. Thats about 2 months living in another country!!! How can someone pack for 2 months in 1 suitcase that can't weigh over 50 lbs?! This is going to be tough. I plan to start researching the United Kingdom and get a solid plan going for what to pack, and what to MUST see. This trip is probably going to leave me broke out of my mind, and fat, but I am SO excited. A little nervous, but mainly excited. I'm leaving my boyfriend of about 2 and half years behind, so I'm a little nervous about missing him, but my goal is to just let go of everything I depend on at home and just breathe, feel, and experience the culture of Europe and to just be liberated. I'm going to be taking 16 units of Physics there so it won't be completely like "vacation", but I hope to travel to countries on the weekend. I hope to make lifelong friends on this trip, and memories I will never forget. So Step 1, research, research, research! I need to find out what to see, and what to bring!!
Till the next blog,
