A few people have asked me if I’m nervous, scared or excited about the trip. I haven’t been nervous about it at all, and have also never been scared. I’m not a fan of avoiding the things that scare me anyway. I think fear should make me careful, smarter and better prepared. But fear should never control me or keep me from doing things I want.
When I stop to think about it, I’m usually excited. The “problem” is that I have been so busy I don’t really get a chance to think about it. Between the family events of this trip to Michigan and studying for microbiology I’ve been so preoccupied that I haven’t had much time to even realize how soon the trip is. I leave in two days, but my focus is on enjoying my last day with family, picking up the last few items and studying.
