Wow, its been wayyyyy too long since I last posted! I have been really busy with exams lately, I’m two down and one more to go! Studying during finals basically consumes your life for the time being. I just realized today 18 more days! I can’t believe that in 18 days I will be out of the continent. That is just so unfathomable! As the time approaches, I think I am getting more nervous. I am really nervous that I am going to miss home really badly. I think that is my greatest fear at the moment. I am really close with my family and I think although it is a great learning experience for myself, I think I am really going to miss them. I am also nervous that I will get really sick in Brazil. I have been sick a lot this year in residence and it makes me worry even more because I will be in a foreign country. Being sick is terrible as it is, but being sick in a foreign country is kind of scary. I don’t know what their system is like or how my body is going to react. I am sure that I will be fine but these are the few things that I am nervous about for my trip.
