Changes..these happen all the time, all different levels, grand and small. I’ve traveled the Atlantic, met amazing people, seen some of the most beautiful things, and experienced life in ways that I never imagined I would. I’m thankful for what I’ve learned, who I’ve met, and where I’ve been. The rest of my life is about to be so different in so many ways. I’m anticipating where my new gains will be leading me.
As I get older, I find it more and more necessary to clean my life of all those people who somehow still find a way to “hang around”. I’m referring to those exes and past flings, those friends that hit you up every once and a while or only if you’re in town, those people who feel that they “have” to keep in touch with you when you know that they truthfully don’t give a fuck. The people that I choose to keep close, especially at this point in my life, are individuals that I plan on having as long term friends. Otherwise, what’s the point? I’ve dealt with enough shallow relationships by now. And don’t even get me started on those guys that realize how much they messed up when we talked or were together, and now want another chance, or just want to take me out because they miss me so much. I’m so good off of that.
I’m here..packing, thinking, and listening to slow jams.

And by the way, I don’t know what types of TV shows y’all are into, but if you’re not already watching it, I HIGHLY recommend Breaking Bad. I’m hoping some of you already watch it. Seasons 1-4 are on Netflix and Season 5 just started but you can get the episodes on sites like fastpasstv.com. Seriously, you guys don’t know what you’re missing. Go on IMDB for a synopsis because I don’t feel like providing one. There’s drugs, murder, criminality, cleverness, family, affairs, close calls, blackmail, sex. Breaking Bad is fucking amazing.
In just 10 days I will be embarking a ship and starting an experience that will ultimately change me in more ways than I can even begin to imagine. People keep exclaiming how amazing and awesome this opportunity is, and of course I’m well aware that; but it’s really starting to hit me. Honestly,there were some times when I found myself wondering if everything would work out because of all the logistics and me making dumb mistakes of not getting things done in time. But, thankfully it has all worked out and this is really happening.
I don’t think I’ve already explained the trip in detail, so let me do that. The program is called Semester at Sea which is a study abroad program that takes place on a cruise liner. The program is through the University of Virginia, but anybody can apply. The whole campus is on the ship, and there are about 400 students that participate. We travel to 14 different countries, spending half the time on the ship (taking classes, studying, working out, sleeping, eating-anything you would normally do on campus/in college) and the other half of the time in the various countries. We spend about 1-7 days in each country, depending on the place. Yes this program is highly expensive, but for those of you who are in college and interested in studying abroad, I highly recommend it. They offer a number of grants, and you also can use financial aid that you already receive at your home institution.
My life is about to change so much over the next 3 and a half months. The anticipation is killing me, and I’ve never been more excited for something in my whole life.
