A New Adventure…Argentina!

Monday, 18 Jan. 2016

Dear Reader,

I hope this letter finds you well, and that you’ll excuse my writing as I have not written a letter in a while.  What should I include, what should I leave out?  These are the questions that make it difficult to even begin to start writing.  As always, you’ll hear from me when I am on the brink of a new adventure, when the nerves that come with starting something new are really the only motivation that prompts these words.

In less than a month I will be shipping myself off on a plane to Cordoba, Argentina to study for 6 1/2 months.  Yes, I have planned and saved all this time to go to another country for half a year…to go to school.  What a nerd you must think I am.  I wouldn’t argue with you and I might even add in that it was my choice (and my privilege) to study Spanish and the Argentine culture.  I’ll say here that I have yet to finish preparing for my trip and by the looks of it, my room at school must had a tornado go through it.  It seems as though I am either packing or unpacking my life at this point.  Is this what getting older feels like: making choices that require planning and patience and commitment?

For now, I can only hope that you are doing much better than I: sleeping well, eating healthy, and getting plenty of exercise.  Maybe we can take up the occupation of someone’s pet?  They always seem to have more than enough of those things.

Best,

Keys2Change
