Well it's getting so close!

I leave Thursday morning. I have to be at the airport at 4am. . I think I am ready. I have everything packed and it doesn't even take up two suitcases. I am proud of that since I will be gone for two months and I am only taking the necessecities. I picked up my new camera yesterday. So far I am satisfied with it. It takes some really good quality photos.

I got my home stay information a few days ago. I will be staying in Atwell with a woman and her son as well as a Korean student who is trying to learn English. The woman, Suzette, tells me that her 17 year old son is a health nut and is at the gym a lot. Looks like I'll have a work out buddy, or at least an escort there! The Korean students name wasn't given, but I think he is 24.

Mark, the man who will be my supervisor for internship is picking me up from the airport. I am happy about that because he is who I am in contact with the most. I am still very nervous though. I've never flown more than two hours alone. I've never been out of the country.

However, I am so unbelievably excited. I don't even think it's set in quite yet.

I am working on a research project while I am there. I finally finished up the rough draft of the Intro and Methods. I am not satisfied with it, but I intend on expanding once I get there and have some time to let everything sink in. I am focusing on coping with culture shock while adapting to a new work setting simultaneously. Well, that's what I focused on for the version I turned in, because I'm not sure how I want to work other things in yet.

But I guess that's not the exciting part of the trip, haha.
The internship and adventures will be so very exciting.

Ok.
Off for my morning run!
Talk to you all again when I am in AUSTRALIA!!!!


Best,
Megan
