75% packed but 100% excited

In less than 12 hours I will be on my way to the Kansas City International Airport to begin my journey to Slovenia. Accompanying me will be a group of people I’m glad I had the opportunity to get to know during my first year at KU and another group of people that I have just recently met. Throughout the next 10 days, I’m excited to learn more about everyone and the beautiful country we will be visiting.

I’ve always been awful about packing for trips, and this one is no exception. Usually, I overpack (which I probably still did), or I procrastinate and don’t pack until the last minute (which I definitely did do). Regardless, after a weekend full of allergies, unpacking from my first year at KU, three trips to Target, and plenty of phone calls to my roommate about what to bring, I would say I am almost ready.

Because it is already late and I will be getting little to no sleep while enduring a 7 hour time change, I better leave this here and try to get a little bit of rest before our big day of travel tomorrow.
