Thoughts to make a person go crazy

I am getting ready to go to the study abroad meeting and I looked through my student handbook. I have heard advice from former students. Here are some thoughts going through my head.

1) I need to learn military time?! 21:00 – 12:00, so 9PM.

2) What do I pack?- They do not wear shorts or sweatpants, those are the staples of my summer wardrobe.

3) I read in the handbook that I am encouraged to try liver-nope, not happening-okay maybe-we’ll see.

4) I do not know how to speak the language, How will I know the difference between laundry soap and fabric softener once I get there?

5) How do you cram 10 pairs of shoes in your suit case? (rain boots, especially.)

6) There isn’t any peanut butter in Norway?

7) What am I forgetting to do that is essential for studying abroad?

-Hopefully this meeting gives me more insight to what I will really need to know.

-PS. I leave in a month and a half. (freak out mode=engaged)



How do I start?

One day, I was sitting alone in my apartment creepin’ on my cousins Facebook.  She traveled to New Zealand, and the pictures sparked my interest.  I am 20 years old.  I have step-by-step plans for the next ten years including where I want to live and where I want to work.  I wondered where my spontaneity is?  I decided going on an adventure overseas with no plans besides the places that I want to see would be an experience of a life time. I will be studying Human Rights in Moss, Norway.  I plan to travel to Paris, London, Scotland, and Sweden while I am there.  Tickets are booked-plans are not.  (Besides Harry Potter Studios, because who could pass that up?!)   This blog will serve as a journal for my adventures and I can’t wait to see where this summer leads me.
