Alright- it's the first post and I'm still in the states. I'm getting all my stuff together and it's taking so much longer than I expected. Is there anyway to pack light when you're moving your life to another continent for half a year? I don't think so. It's been so incredibly hard to get this trip together- on paper it looks so easy. I've had trouble every step of the way- internally at USF, with the bank securing my loans, with the U.S. government regarding my passport and with the Greek Consul regarding my visa and immigration status. Getting rejected at every turn- thinking it would be so much easier to just give up and study here. But something is pulling me overseas- I'm meant to go there for a reason and I can feel it. I hope I find what I'm looking for. I'll update later- as for tomorrow, I have to secure my student visa downtown (finally) and check on the status of my funding. Sheesh! I originally planned to leave tomorrow, but it looks like saturday at the earliest or monday at the latest depending on the status of my visa processing.
