Le Début

Hello Internet,

I hope you don’t mind me talking to you as if I know you. Let’s be honest, I probably do know you. How are you doing? Been well since we last talked? Seen the new Star Wars? Yeah, I agree, it is awesome.

If you couldn’t tell already, I don’t have much experience with blogging, so bear with me and please prepare yourself for bad jokes and rambling posts. I hope you enjoy them.

So, where do I begin? Le début, if you will.

‘T’ minus eight days until I leave for Geneva. That seems like a good start.

Eight. Days.

How does that make me feel? Thanks for the question, friend.

This fact blows my mind. For such a long time, studying abroad has always been something that I’m going to do, something that’s always been on the horizon. For those who might not know me well enough, I have a lot of things that fall into this category of “I’ll get to it later.” My father likes to remind me of this fact. So here I am, and in eight days, I’m actually going to be doing that which I’ve been preparing for so long. I’m excited, I’m nervous, but really excited. Being nervous is nothing new to me, though. I’m a very nervous person, but I’m just hoping it’s like when I get on stage with my guitar. I’m nervous beforehand and I’m nervous as it starts but once the ball starts rolling, I can relax and enjoy myself, but this is really uncharted territory for me. I don’t know what this is going to be like and I think that scares me the most. I have an idea of what I think should happen and how it should make me feel, but what if it’s completely different?

That’s how this makes me feel and these are the things I’m thinking about as I prepare to leave. Now, please excuse me while I continue to edit my packing list.

P.S. Here’s a nice stock picture of where I’ll be traveling to. I’m going to attempt to always have a nice picture, that I’ve actually taken, to accompany every post.
