In a few hours, my cohorts and I will meet up at El Cerrito High School. From there on, we will begin our journey to the east coast. Nevertheless, the following days up until now has already been a journey itself.
I began my day preparing for my flight. This is my first time boarding a plane so packing a luggage is a new experience for me. I had a hard time deciding what to put in my checked luggage, and what to put in my carry-on. The hassle was, however, quiet fun. It took me a while to collect my necessities(for Yale), my books, and more importantly my overall self and thoughts to prepare for this 20 day trip. A bad expectation I would say is the lack of sleep. Otherwise I have nothing but good expectations.
Time passes by really fast. It doesn't seem that the selection process was several months ago. Now, I'm checking my luggage and making sure I have everything I need. Although I'm pretty sure that I will forget something, that's just life. Anyway, I'm really excited for this journey. I hope all goes well and I'm truly anticipating that moment when I arrive at the footsteps of Yale and its dormitory.
