El Fin

Yesterday coach walked by me and said, "48 hours kiddo". That hit me hard and I for the first time started thinking about how close everything actually was...

Today is my last day at Juniata. I've loved being here. I've loved hanging out with my friends, bothering Jenny in the library, using up Fred's guest meals, and dying while KP talks about...well anything. And believe me when I say how much I am going to miss everyone while I am abroad. I thought coming here for a week might be a bad idea because it would make it harder to leave. But what I discovered is that I wasn't ready to fall back into Juniata life just yet. I had a fabulous summer and I am not ready to get back into the rhythm of Huntingdon life. I need to leave and grow up and experience new things and 9 months is plenty of time for that to happen.

So I began to think about what I was most excited about...First, I am looking forward to a cultural experience cutting edge fashion, arts, music, food! I want to take culinary classes and photography, and see the museums. I want to go out dancing until the wee hours of the morning. I love dancing and if my Mexico experience was anything to judge by the men out there are FABU dancers! None of this sweaty let me grind all over you crap. I am looking forward to traveling and seeing cool places and taking pictures. Photography has really developed into a hobby for me and I am thrilled by the idea of exotic locations, interesting people, and new cityscapes.

Wish me luck! I'll send love and good thoughts from Barcelona!
