The excitement is contagious!
I'm pretty worried about being gone for so long, though - In a recent poll of my peers, I was voted the first person to get homesick.
I just want to be able to relax and have a great time with my friends...and I find that difficult when I'm depressed.
On the other hand, I am in no way worried about being homesick in college (which officially begins 5 days after returning from Ireland). Call me short-sighted, call me naive; there is something to be said for structure and routine when fighting depression.
I just hope I'm right.
++ I can't wait to start Japanese classes...it's like a lifelong dream of mine is about to be realized.
I'm sorry, did I not tell you that I'm a dork?
I finally feel like myself for the first time this summer - too bad it was too late.
