Dream Days

Hey all!

I will be graduating in 16 days and leaving to Mexico in 23 days. To be honest it feels unreal. I am very comfortable where I am and with the life I have here. The thing is I don’t want to be comfortable, I want to live to the fullest and follow my dreams. I am ready, but I am also scared out of my mind. The closer the date comes, I start to get a little more scared. I dont think it will fully hit me until I am at the airport. I know I have to get out of my comfort zone and be afraid as life is about testing yourself and seeing what is possible. Which anything is possible, if you really want it. I think its natural for most first time major travelers to be scared shitless. After Europe, I am unsure yet of what I will be doing. I know I have to save money as I have a large desire to go to South America. Also, when I get to Mexico Ill try to post as much as possible. Much love.

To London We Go

Happy Friday All,

Good news……I am going to London! One of the places I have always wanted to go. It is truly unbelievable, I don’t think any of this will hit me until I get on the plane. Just a small town girl living her wildest dreams. Just a friendly reminder that no matter what, if you want it go get it. Much love!

Nostalgia

Happy Saturday!

I wanted to write this today because of the nostalgia I have been feeling. This semester many of my best friends left to another country. My close Brazilian friends went home back to Brasil as their exchange ended. Times like today I think about just walking downstairs to meet all my friends. Now if I walk past that same door new people have accompanied that space and now only memories can be thought of, when I pass it. You really don’t know how much your best friends matter to you until you have them no more. My Brazilian friends mean so much to me and have a special place in my heart. Each one taught me many things. Last night I stood in the same place we all used to dance at and I just stood there for a quite a few seconds…..just observing and thinking it will never be the same. It was as if I was having a sudden realization. They are really gone….they are not hidden under my bed or down the hall of my apartment or the dining center lol. At this time I wish it could just go back to what it was 4 months ago. Laughing, smiling, and being together. However, I know this cannot happen. I just have to learn to accept that things change. Times like today I just think of the memories we had and smile. Because I am thankful for everything we had here in America together. Friendship has no borders. Until we meet again. Much love.
