Realizing This Might Be My Last Real Post
Well until August at least….
I cannot believe it has come, I’m actually leaving for Kenya tomorrow. It probably started to really soak in last night. My entire family came over to wish me bon voyage and safe travels. After all the drinking games, and singing and dancing was over, they all hugged me and wished me well. It sunk in then and there. As my nana started to cry and my aunts begged me to be careful, I heard and saw genuine concern in their eyes and shaky voices. I realized that I am going somewhere that is dangerous, far away, and for a very long time. Nervousness is such an understatement for the feelings that boil through me. Excitement doesn’t even grasp a tablespoon of the “jitters” that I have. There are too many emotions inside of me, that are bursting out due to tomorrows departure. I’m doing it, I’m going there, I’m changing things, I’m changing myself. I’m diving into the unknown, into a place I have no expectations for. Wow.
80.2% average in winter term! Reached my goal by just .2 percent, but hey, I did it!
