the anticipation is killing me

So...I am one lucky lady! I have always wanted to study abroad and NEVER thought I would actually have the opportunity to, but here I am...about to leave for Cuernavaca, Mexico in 5 days! I applied for a study abroad schlorship at school and actually was awarded enough money to cover tuition and was left to pay for airfare and luxuries. I owe it all to my mom and dad for funding the rest of my trip and want them to know that I am so thankful. My feelings are mixed as I am full of anticipation and excitement, I have no idea what to expect. This will be the first time for me to leave the country on my own. I feel so grown up! I am quite the "over packer," more like the biggest "over packer" ever, so packing for a 2-week trip is going to be a huge challenge for me. I am sitting here typing while the suitcases Dandi let me borrow are sitting in a corner of my room empty, its an intimidating feeling. Ill get over it and get through it, but probably not untill Thursday evening.
