Day 0

Today is day 0. The most frightening part is about to come. I am spending every last minute with my wonderful girlfriend and am so sad that I have to leave her behind. By every last minute, I do in fact mean every one. Sloan and I are going to stay up all night and hold onto each other so tight that we can't forget the feeling.

14 hours from this very minute I am supposed to leave her side and embark upon an adventure all by myself for what seems like the first time in my life. Even when I went off to college at UCLA I was never truly alone because within hours I met Sloan and from that minute on always had someone there to confide in and fall back on for support.

My emotions are rather torn... I don't want to leave behind everything and everyone that I've ever known, but at the same time I know that what awaits me on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean is an experience that will change my life forever. I can't wait to go, but I also am sad to leave.

So long have I waited for this moment to come and now all I can say is: cheers to you world, let's see what you have to offer.

  1. You and Sloan are strong and will survive your months apart. We are so glad she is joining us in December. Enjoy!
