This is my first blog entry! Right now I am trying to finish preparing everything for my flight to Paris tomorrow. It seems like there is so much work to do just to get there; from applying to study abroad, to buying health insurance, applying for scholarships, booking the flight, getting my French visa, packing, and planning, planning, planning!!! It's enough to give someone a headache.

But here I am, at the culmination of so much work. I can't believe it's finally here. As I look forward to my journey, I know that I cannot prepare for everything, in fact, as we may see, there will be lots of unexpected obstacles and challenges that appear. However, I am confident that I will be able to face these challenges head on. So I guess that means I'm expecting the unexpected 😊

I'll end this first entry with a brief but wise quote from one of my icons, Dan Eldon, a wonderfuly talented collage artist and young photojournalist who was killed in Somalia:

"THE JOURNEY IS THE DESTINATION."
