Halfway there

I'm in Birmingham! I've been here since this afternoon hanging out with my family and trying to regain my health. Oh yeah, turns out after standing outside in the cold wet air over New Years Eve, I got super sick. So I've been pretty much dying in the two days we've been driving here. I feel like I have pneumonia. I mean, I don't, because I've only been sick for two days but goodNESS I feel awful.

And I miss my lovely, and my puppies. I cried for like 30 minutes when I left home. I hadn't really thought about how it would apply to me but boy am I going to get homesick in Disney. I feel like my dang heart was ripped out of my chest when I left. and I was the one leaving! It was so hard. This whole internship means so much to me. The opportunity and the fact that I'm actually pursueing something haha. There's no turning back but its definitely difficult to push forward and I haven't even started yet.

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.

On another note, I've never done a 365 project, so I figured this would be a good time to start. For those who don't know, its where you take and post one picture for every day of the year. Its primarily to improve your photographic creativity but it also serves as an amazing diary of the year. My laptop isn't picking up internet so I can't load my pictures yet. I'll just have to back-post with my picture-of-the-day for my traveling days to Orlando. Expect those soon. <3

I can't believe that this time in 3 days, I'll be unable to sleep and so terribly excited because the next morning I'll be checking in to my apartment and life for the next four months! gahhhh. Emotional overload. haha. I feel amazing.

I am SO EXCITED for you, Marina! Obviously leaving those you love is hard but I know it'll be so worth it. Ahh I'm super jealous you'll be there in 3 days. XD

Btw, love your (new?) layout!

Thanks Abby! Yes, its a new layout. It took me like an hour to figure out the html for it. haha. But I like it <3

I know it'll totally be worth all this trouble to go through with the CP. Its going to be an amazing experience. Its just hard in the days leading up to it. I'm not sure how I'm going to feel when I'm actually there, you know? Incredible, I'm sure. haha.
