I have 3 days until I hop on a plane that will take me -not that far away- but clearly out of my comfort zone. I will be starting university in London and as I only lived in one country my whole life, I can’t help but feel a bit nervous. I have visited many many countries and even though I can say that traveling is my #1 hobby, this time I won’t be coming back to my own bed after a week full of traveling and exploring. Instead, I’ll be walking through Covent Garden with my soy latte and probably running between campuses and classes.
I think you’ve learned by now that I am so very excited to finally live in my ultimate favorite city and hopefully be successful.
People, family friends and sometimes even acquaintances ask me: “What do you want to do in the future?”
I always stare blankly at them for a few moments before I can actually respond: “I don’t know yet!”
Aren’t we supposed to wait and see what happens? I mean, of course I will be working towards a happy and successful future, once I figure out what it is that will make me happy. I will be studying International Relations however some part of me wants to do something in the journalism area (not necessarily fashion or lifestyle- I’d love to officially write about politics!). That’s why I will be evaluating all opportunities from all areas that interest me and will try to figure it all out.
I was planning on making a How To Pack For College post, however since the packing genious in our house is my mom, I don’t really have much to say about that.
As these 3 days pass, I’m slowly drifting towards a new life and I’m really happy about that. Nothing personal, but after a while you just get sick of the people and the places and need a fresh start in a brand new environment.
I can’t wait until I’m all settled in my cozy/hipster dorm room, listening to some calming music at 2 am and just feeling that sense of calm that I’ve been missing for so long.
