I’m officially nervous.
Jump Start begins the 17th of August and time is flying. Has it really been five months since I accepted my offer? wow. It feels like less than a space between two words. But still, here I am: writing my first blog for UBC (my first blog ever, actually).
I have a list of things to do, a list of things to take, a list of things to buy and a list of things to leave. Is it easy to notice that I like lists? I also have a list of friends to miss and a not-for-long-empty list of friends to meet.
I feel scared but ready; happy.
I’m sitting under a cherry tree, thinking of the hundreds of yous out there, in the world, feeling kind of like me: trying to decide which laptop to get (go for the mac!) or if it’s really worth it to get a fridge (is it?). Wondering if you’ll get along with your roommate or neighbor (are you out there Okanagan House 412?)…
It’s almost time to say goodbye and leave with much enthusiasm packed in your bags. How about a coffee when we get there?
