Day One

Sunday, June 24th, 2012
  Today is departure day, the bittersweet "end of the line" that has been looming since I signed up for study abroad midway through the spring semester. I'll be in Spain until the end of July, and my return will throw me into an already-busy final month of summer. I need to focus on the matters at hand, however. This experience may prove to be an academic crucible for me, a "make or break" event in my academic career at the University of Mary Washington. On the positive side, this will likely by a life-altering experience. It will be a chance to experience the culture and climate of a country not my own, and that alone is rewarding. I want to see more of the world before I decide my place in it.
