Rushing–A word that describes my true feelings as our departure date approaches. Now I’m a first-time traveler; this being said I am feeling all sorts of emotions. There are obvious emotions like excitement and nervousness come; then I’m influenced not only by my confidence in myself but our group as a whole to make the best of this opportunity we can; to then come back to feeling venerable because I have no idea what’s to come. All this is racing through my mind as I try to scavenge the perfect items to pack. I want to pack just right, being I don’t want to bring stuff that I don’t end up using but have items that will enhance this experience to its full potential. Traveling has always been something I have planned to do throughout my life, but it has not been until now I get to go on a worldly journey to India. Oddly to say, this trip has been quite spontaneous for me. Financial reasons made me unsure of the possibilities I would have come time for these options. Grateful–This is another word that describes a feeling when I get time to think of this opportunity. Being aware of the privilege of going to school is one thing every student should know. I think this because I feel it reminds us of how we got here. It reminds us of the people who helped us grow and become the individual we see in the mirror today.
