I know it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve just been distracted with life and school. Soon I’ll be home. Of course, I miss home but I try not to think about leaving St. Petersburg. Every time that I realize how many days are left, I quickly try to forget about it. I know that I am going to try when I leave because I don’t know when I will be able to come back here. Also I’m going to miss the friends that I’ve made here because they are just amazing. I hope that we stay in touch.
A couple days ago a wedding invitation arrived from my friend, Emily, who I met last semester here. She was in the same program as me and we had some classes together. I’m so excited for her and I really want to go to her wedding. However, I don’t know if I can afford to go because it is in Minnesota. We will see.
Yesterday, I was stressed because I was thinking about Fall quarter. I have to register for classes soon. Actually, my registration opens the day before I leave to go back home. I’ll have to register around 11PM because of the time difference. The reason I was stressed is because I didn’t know which classes I should take and what I still need in order to complete my major. I don’t know how my classes for this year will count so I really need to talk to my advisors. Since I’m double majoring, it makes things a little more complicated but I did email both my advisors yesterday. Hopefully, they get back to me soon because I just want to know. I really want to graduate on time which will be in Spring 2013. Scary. I don’t want to think about the real world now. I’m unsure about it and everyone seems to know what they want which makes me feel like I’m lagging behind.
I have a vague plan about what I want but I”m unsure of everything. Therefore, I want to go teach English in South Korea for a year and figure it out. I’ll be productive, gain experience, figure my life out, and travel. That sounds like an okay plan to me.
Then after thinking about graduation I started thinking about my love life. It’s going to be very odd going back home to my boyfriend. Things are just a little off between us and I’m also unsure about that. I seem to be unsure about a lot of things lately. It’s not a good feeling at all. However, I do know that I want to apply to be a UCEAP Student Ambassador.
The UCEAP Student Ambassador is meant to promote study abroad programs and to encourage other students to study abroad. It’s a scholarship and I think it would be good experience to add to my resume. I asked the Student Services Manager, Jarlath, if he could write me a letter of recommendation for this scholarship and he said yes. The application isn’t due until May 30 but I want to get it done as soon as possible.
Since the semester is going to be over soon, I have been shopping for souvenirs and realizing that I have a lot of things to buy for people. I have bought so many shot glasses for people and earrings. Then I start wondering how I will fit all my things in my luggage. I’m pretty sure I’m going to mail some things home like my books because it will be cheaper that way.
Finals are approaching and that’s not going to be fun. I am worried about my grammer class because I just do not do well in that class. The finals aren’t going to be too hard though and they are only on the newest material we have been learning. Everything will be fine. I’m not too worried.
After worrying about everything yesterday, I went out to a bar with some friends. I really wanted a margarita because it was Cinco de Mayo but the bar we went to didn’t have any. I was a bit upset because even though it is not really a holiday, it made me miss home a lot more. Instead, I got a tequila sunrise to celebrate but it still wasn’t the same because I wasn’t home.
I’m not so sure what the point of this post is exactly but I just wanted to catch you up with everything that is going on.
