Time is going by rather quickly, but it also seems to be dragging on at the same time. It’s hard to believe that in 24 days I will be in California waiting to board a plane flying halfway around the world. My anxiety keeps rising as I think about what to pack, that seems to be the hardest part because I don’t want to forget anything! I’ve also been stressing about spending money. Although the scholarship helps out a lot, I am being realistic in the fact that I may never get to go back to New Zealand again, but I am being unrealistic in the fact that I want to do everything while I am there. It is expensive to travel, as I am quickly learning, but I know it will be well worth it.
My travel agent is currently setting up my spring break trip around Northern New Zealand and then my Sun Seekers tour on the Eastern Coast of Australia in July! I’m pumped for both of these experiences, just anxious about finances. It’ll all work itself out, hopefully! But like I often say, everything happens for a reason.
