One week – 168 hours, or 10,080 minutes – is all that separates me from adventures across the pond.
In this last week, people keep asking: are you ready?
The answer: as ready as I’ll ever be.
I’ve already packed my bag twice “just to see if stuff fits”. My list has been made for months. I have my passport next to my bed, my peanut butter stowed away in my suitcase (American > British), my itinerary printed and confirmed with my hosts. I’ve joined my alumnae organization’s London network on Facebook and confirmed that the exchange rate is where I budgeted for it to be.
I’m trying to be realistic while keeping my usual optimism about – sure, I’ll be tired when I get off the plane at Heathrow. Sure, I’m going to miss being around my Boston friends on my birthday. Yes, I’m positive I will get sick of these clothes. But all this planning and dreaming has put me in a place where I’m so ready for this adventure, no matter what shape it takes.
Keep following my blog to see what happens next – I’ll be posting at least every few days while I’m in London!
