First post

Hi all,
So this is the first post of my blog! Through this blog I'll be posting about my exchange in Louisville, Kentucky at Bellarmine Uiniversity. As you can imagine I'm so excited! I leave on August 9th and will start International Orientation on the 11th. Right now I have 7 weeks before I leave South Africa and during this time I'll be documenting my preparations etc! And probably moaning about packing my bag because we all know that is going to be a problem :)

Right now, I'm in a state of disbelief. I can't believe that a year has passed since I initiated this whole process. Coincidentally I leave a year and a day after I sent in my application. Weird huh? I just left Grahamstown this weekend and I thought I'd feel incredibly sad and be crying my eyes out but I didn't. I think its because Grahamstown has always been a transitionary place and as much as I've grown to love it, it'll never be home. My friends however are another state. I can't begin to even describe how much I love them and how much I'll miss them. But then I suppose I need a reason to come back...

Next post I'll be including some photos of my new varsity home for the next 5 months.
