-2 days

The day after tomorrow I leave Austin to make my way to Lake Buena Vista effing Florida!

It still hasn't entirely hit me. I still have majority of my packing to do and goodbyes to say. I'm sure I'll cry at some point. haha. I'm so incredibly excited to do this. And anxious. And proud of myself for actually going through with this. I've needed something like this for so long. I'm really happy to be going but I'm scared at the same time I think. I haven't lived with my parents for over two years, but I go to school in the same city and I still live like four blocks away from them, so this will be my "college experience" in the sense of truly being on my own and throwing myself into a situation that I'm not entirely comfortable with. Its scary but liberating at the same time. I feel like its long overdue.

Tomorrow I have to pack my life up, spend a few hours with my parents, and see all my friends at numerous New Years Eve parties. Then around 10:00 AM on New Years Day, I have to pick my mom, my sister Lauren, and her friend Adrienne and starting driving! We're taking two days to get to Birmingham Alabama to have Christmas with my family for a few days, then we're driving to Orlando to move me in! Its so crazy. I can't wait.

Ahhh I can't wait!!

I am totally with you on the first-REAL-college-experience type thing! That's exactly why it's kind of scary for me too haha so you're definitely not alone in that. But it will be so worth it!

I hope your trip is going well so far!! SO EXCITED!
