It’s the end of week one here in Granada and I cannot believe how fast it has gone. When I found out earlier this year that I would be spending my fall semester abroad, I was excited but nervous. I thought about all of the things I would be missing out on back in the states. Every time I thought about leaving, I was always excited, but felt anxious too. What would I be missing out on? Would it be worth it? Now that I am here in Granada, I cannot begin to tell you how worth it this all is. It has only been one week since I left the states and I already know that this will be the best 3 months of my entire life thus far. I have already made incredible memories with even better friends and I can’t imagine what is yet to come for us.
If there is one thing I want to do while here, it is to not take any moment for granted and to embrace everything that comes my way. This is truly a once in a lifetime chance to up and move away from home and experience a new lifestyle and culture; I’m already loving siesta. So here goes nothing! Hasta luego!
