I am one month away from flying to Brussels. Two papers stand in my way of freedom. I am so ready to escape the midwest. I'm ready to cross the ocean and through myself completely into a new and different place. I don't know entierly what to expect. I don't speak French. I'll be living with a host family I know nothing about. My classes will challenge me. I simply want to learn from the people. My only view of the Western World is through American eyes. I am ready to experience the other developed world. I'm ready to simply learn from people.
I've been thinking so much about my life goals lately. I hope my semester abroad will clarify a lot and teach me to be a part of humanity, not simply study it.
