2 months to Europe

Hello All,
It's been quite awhile since I've blogged but it's been a whirlwind between Graduation and finishing up all my activities. I got my confirmation letter in March that I was accepted into the European Hotel Academy. I am so unbelievably excited to go! I leave the 2nd week of September and don't come back till June. My cousin is also going with me but we'll be in different hotels. So now I need to get my British Visa and start preparing. I have already made packing lists and shopping lists and sight seeing lists and I cannot wait! It's going to be an amazing year! I am very thankful to have this oppurtunity and to be able to live overseas for a year. It's interesting telling people about my plans, they give me one of two reactions. The first is "OMG how exciting, your going to love Europe!" or I get " Your leaving the country for a year, away from family and friends, aren't you terrified?". The truth is yes, I am excited and I cannot wait to go but at the same time yes I am scared to move away for a year, I am nervous that I won't succeed but if you obsess with the bad it will be bad! Therefore I am keeping the positive in mind and reminding myself this is a trip of a life time. Most people move into a dorm right after high school, I am moving to Europe. Some people think that I am not going to come back. That I am going to fall in love or go to school there afterwards and I have no clue what I am going to want in a year. As of right now I am coming home in June and going to university on the east coast of Canada in September. But we shall see. I won't be posting for another little while but when I do it'll be because I have updates :)
