The Wait is Finally Over!

At last, the long awaited trip to the East coast has finally come! Tomorrow’s finally the day that I’ll be able to experience something I would have never imagined. I still find it unbelievable that I am a part of this program. Ever since I made it through the interview phase, I’ve been imagining how this trip would turn out, and tomorrow my dreams will finally become a reality.

Packed and ready to go!
As I sit back, and look at my luggage, I can’t help but feel extremely calm. At this point, I should be running around, and freaking out about tomorrow, but I am completely relaxed at the moment. This is the first year that I will actually be travelling without my parents, but I couldn't be happier. The only thing that I am truly worried about is whether or not I packed too much. I'm only going to be bringing two pieces of luggage, but I feel as though I have packed way too much, and that my check-in bag is far too big. Let's just hope that everything will go smoothly tomorrow. 

Since I have to arrive at El Cerrito High School by 3:15 AM, I am definitely setting more than five alarms to ensure I'll wake up on time. This is extremely early for me, considering the fact that I usually wake up at 10 AM, but then again, it’s my fault, since I sleep at around 1 AM. Anyways, once everyone arrives at El Cerrito, we’ll be heading to the airport by 4 AM. Thanks to Don, we have our itinerary for the next couple of days. Although it seems overwhelming to be going on a plane everyday, I know that what we would learn would make our sleep deprivation worth it. 

I am definitely going to miss my family, and my home, but I feel like I'm ready to spend a month away from them, and finally see what it feels like to be truly independent. I can't express how excited I am, because I have literally been waiting for this moment for months. Finally, the wait is over, and I can just relax and go to sleep as I await for tomorrow to come.
