I have three weeks left in Colorado and I'm getting really excited! Have to do all the little errands I'm not sure how to do over there: getting my purse fixed, visit to my asthetician, haircut, purchasing goods only available in the US (livescribe pen), and saying goodbyes! The closer it gets the more I realize it IS finally happening! I emailed the professor who shared her beautiful country with her students 2 years ago and informed her of my future trip, she was pretty excited.
It's still hard to realize that in 3 weeks my life will be infinitely different. I've really enjoyed my time abroad before but I've never moved anywhere....hopefully I'll love it as much as I think I will. Some of the advice offered by seasoned students included, "make an effort to get to know the local population." Um....yea, isn't that why someone would choose a school in a different country? Apparently a lot of American students were too stressed out by their environment to bother with making "foreign" friends. Heads up- you're the foreigner. That's one of the things I'm the most excited about. The university students we met in Tanta were so hospitable and wonderful, I won't expect less from Cairo students.
I get to take classes again!! I really do love school and it's been hard without anything motivating my studying.
