 London is calling, so I just have to go! 

 It seems like only yesterday that the countdown I put on my phone read 100 days till London. Now I'm in my final few days before I head out on this crazy adventure.  This entire summer has been a constant roller coaster of emotions. When I was first accepted into the semester program at the University of Westminster in London, I was ecstatic!  However, I was surprised at all the things I didn't know about life in Europe. I actually frantically called one of my friends this summer freaking out because I didn't know how to read Celsius, was worried about being penalized for writing "color" instead of "colour" in papers, and couldn't believe that Europe had different sized paper than America.  All these small details and many more made me worry that I wouldn't be able to transition from all things I was used to in America to all things British.

I have had a lot of fears hit me over the summer about living in London for three months, but now here I am in my final few days, and I am not nearly as fearful. I am going to have a chance to travel across Europe, take pictures of beautiful architecture, meet interesting people, learn in an entirely different way, and fulfill my undying want for adventure.  So yes, I might have some doubts and fears about this upcoming trip, but I think that's normal for anyone! I'm not going to let it bring me down. London is calling, so I just have to go!
