I told my friends today that I wanted to start a blog now that I had completed my application for study abroad. I said, "I want to because I'm excited, but I know I'll have nothing to write." Of course, hours later, I've been accepted to my study abroad program, and I have too much energy to wait on making a blog now.
So, hello. It is February 1st, and I have until June 19th until I start my semester+ in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Yet, here I am. Anyway, I just would really like to give a grateful shout-out to CEA Global Education. I applied to my program yesterday, faxed my transcript in at about noon, and was accepted by 8:30PM. So instead of waiting for a seemingly endless period of time, I found out within 48 hours of my actual application submission (and that was on a Sunday, folks!).
I'm not going to lie, I've wanted to study abroad for a while now. It's been hard seeing 2 of my best friends leave the country this semester, and I know plenty of other people also overseas. But now it's my turn and I'm so very excited. Although, the moment my parents told me I could apply, I became nervous. 5.5 months is a very long time to spend away from the places you know and the people you love, but I know it will be worth it in the end, very worth it. When I submitted my application, I told my family, "now it's out of my hands. What happens happens!" And now that I'm accepted, I'm nervous again. Haha. But really, I don't think I would have been accepted so quickly if it wasn't really meant to be. (And that's my thought on that!)

I'm sure I'll find a few things to write about inbetween now and the week prior to departure, such as visa application and class registration. And maybe I'll even give a low-down as to why I chose CEA over all the other, I'm sure, wonderful study abroad companies. But until then, IR Theory and Poetry await!
¡Buenos noches, señores y señoritas!
