|I've been making a bit of a mess while I packed!|
The time is here! Well, almost. In just a few hours, I will be departing from home (again) and going to the East Coast (again)! The trip is almost here! (I feel like I'm pretty bad at titling things.)
At 3:50 AM, the Vanderbilt cohort must meet up at El Cerrito High School, along with the Penn (University of Pennsylvania) cohort. We are all meeting together since we are all flying this morning. I am expecting some discussion to happen and photos to be taken, and we leave for the airport at 5 AM. I have a copy of the itinerary, but I won't spoil the story so soon! I'll go over it as the story unfolds.
I've spent the day packing. I find myself packing so often that I'm quite used to it at this point. After all, I just came back from a flight last week! I had to pack from scratch, though, since I completely unpacked after I came home. It's okay, since I know what to pack and I'm quite experienced at it now.
I'm simultaneously worried and excited for the trip. My worries stem from having expectations that won't be met, since I've already had fantastic trips before, and I'm excited for new things; after all, it is still a trip! From what I've read, Vanderbilt Summer Academy is quite different from Summer@Brown. I'm glad that there's a bit of a jump, since it'll be harder to have expectations.
