|My fasha dropping me off at the air port!!|
So here we go:
July 5, 2011
I'm sitting in the O'Hare airport right now. I still have 1.5 hours before I board for my flight to LONDON. Everything seems surreal. I can't believe it's finally here...I'm actually going to London. I need to make sure to take every opportunity to let sink in and have the time of my life. I wish I was gone for a little longer but I wanted to be around my last (sorority) recruitment.
I feel like this trip will be just what I needed. I honestly think if Mom was still here and if I was still with Zack that I wouldn't be here right now. Everything's just hit me at once--realizing how lost I felt and that this one in a lifetime opportunity would never come again and I felt like I had to take it. I'm so grateful Dad has been so supportive. I'm sure he's a lot more nervous that he shows. Mom would've been a HUGE mess. I know she'll protect me while I'm gone and I'll make smart decisions.
Beth got engaged!!! Finally! Her ring is gorgeous, and I got to try it on...although it didn't fit my finger :P And Kristen is moving to NY and got a job with a PR firm.
I feel my immaturity has been caused by my fear of growing up. I want to have a steady routine and live in the real world but I'm still terrified. I still dont' know what I want to do with my life. But I think I have decided that after college I'm going to try and live in a big city somewhere and experience a new aspect of life. This is the time for me to travel and live in big cities and explore everything that's out there.
(editor's note: that did not happen)
All I know is whatever is supposed to happen will happen. Right now I'm happy, have good friends and having fun.
I'm hoping I can vlog while I'm gone. I also hope I find CHARLIE :) I doubt it but I will be searching.
Hope to write again soon,
Here's a video of when I first got to campus. Unfortunately, I don't have many videos since I lost my camera in Prague :(
Editor's note: next journal entry was August 11, 2011.
I'll keep posting about my trip to Europe because it was quite memorable. This can be like my blog series: Jenna goes to London
And I can share some pictures and a lot of anecdotes :)
Thanks for reading :)
