I’m sitting here in the Dallas Fort Worth airport trying to figure out how I’m feeling while waiting for my next flight to Beijing. I’m still having trouble really believing that I’ll be in China in 17 hours.
My flight from Jacksonville to DFW was smooth, but uncomfortable. I was in a middle seat and I was so anxious I was worried I was going to get sick. Now I’m still a bit shaky but the nausea has subsided.
I’m excited for the adventures that lie ahead and I’m definitely sad about the life I’m leaving behind. I’ve built such amazing relationships over the past few years – it’s heartbreaking to say goodbye. However thanks to technology, we can still stay in touch. So to all my friends reading this, please keep in touch.
Words really can’t even begin to describe the excitement I’m feeling. My world is about to get turned completely upside-down (get it, because I’ll be on the other side of the world?) I’ve lived abroad before, but China is a whole new world. I can’t wait to see what this adventure brings.
