20 days.

Twenty. That is how many days are left until July 1st, the day I leave for Africa. Time has been moving so quickly lately and I almost wish it wouldn't. I am excited to see what this summer internship holds for me and the opportunities I'll get while traveling, but just a little more time here in Washington would be nice. I'm going to experience amazing things and see amazing places, I know that for a fact. It seems the older I get, the faster the days seem to go by. What will it be like to travel for thirty two hours straight on my own? What kind of people will I meet on the way? Will I get any sleep, or will I be too excited? These are the questions that both excite me and scare me. I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to my friends, family and loved ones, even though I know I'll be back in two short months, but am excited to experience something totally new and different. I feel like I'm ready for that.

Also scared. Scared to experience something totally new and different.
