Today’s the Day!

Right now, I’m at LAX with about 3 hours left until my plane leaves for Melbourne (and then Perth.)

Leaving Atlanta was waaay harder than I imagined. I suddenly couldn’t keep the tears from my eyes as I waved “bye for now” to my mom and dad and got in the TSA line. I’m so sad to leave behind my friends and my family whom I love so dearly. But then, I remembered a year ago from today and suddenly it doesn’t seem so bad.

Beyond being scared of the unknown and homesick already, I’m so, so excited to begin this adventure! I have a good feeling in my soul.
