My freshman year of college was a whirlwind of emotions. Between a new school, new friends, and spending half of my summer studying abroad in London, my life was moving so quickly that I barely had time to adjust. Sophomore year was my time to find my place at Boston University. I learned how to cope with tough losses and changing friendships, started my first fancy adult internship in the city, and joined a sorority that enhanced my college experience more than I ever could’ve imagined.
Since ending my junior year a little over two weeks ago, all I can really say about the past 9 months was that they were...comfortable. And well, you know what they say about getting too comfortable.
Long story short, in 9 days I will be moving across the world to Sydney, Australia for a little over 2 months. While I’m there, I’ll take a class on urban sustainability in Australia, intern full-time at a global Public Relations agency, and of course, explore as much of the country as I can.
With my time left in America this summer hitting single digits, I have been feeling a range of emotions. An overwhelming feeling of excitement, disbelief that I actually get to spend my summer exploring Australia, and curiosity as to how the hell I’m going to pack 2 months of my life in a suitcase.
I could not be more ready to step outside of my cozy little comfort zone and experience more of what this enormous world has to offer. So, here’s to a summer of new adventures, an incredible Instagram aesthetic, and emptying my bank account! Sydney, I’ll see you soon.
