It's here, it's finally here. One of the most monumental moments in my life has arrived. Let me start off by saying that packing for a semester abroad is probably one of the most challenging and overwhelming tasks a person can do - more so than applying for a student visa in another country. Trying to fit three seasons into a suitcase that cannot be more than fifty pounds is a process. My final hours in the states has been consumed by this task because there are so many things to consider. All of this, however, is in preparation for a journey that makes all this little stuff an unfair trade because what I will get out of my journey will be irreplaceable. 

 Going into this semester abroad I am overwhelmed with emotions and am thrilled to know that in a few hours I will be meeting the people in my program, AIFS. I am most excited to see what South Africa is like from my own perspective and can't wait to try the new food, see new places, and above all, meet new people. I will obviously miss life in the states but will hopefully adjust to my new home quickly.
