With a little over 2 weeks to go before I jump feet-first into the biggest adventure of my life so far, I’ve decided to take advantage of a rainy afternoon and start writing my blog…Well, after baking cakes, spending an unnecessary amount of time on Facebook and every other form of procrastination that, as a student, I have managed to perfect.
37 days sounds like a lot of time, doesn’t it? Especially when you reflect just how long has gone into planning this whole year. Put into perspective, 37 days is just under half the amount of time I’ll be spending in Moscow next Spring. Yet, no matter how I try and justify it to myself, 37 days feels like barely anything.
For the next 37 days until I go, I’m going to try and fill you in on my rollercoaster several months of preparation, exactly what has gone wrong and how I’ve managed to sort things and get everything back on track. For my first post, let me take you back to the very beginning: how I decided where I was going to spend 7 months of my life.
