It's Actually Happening

Look at me writing a blog. I'm officially my mother. Ha

Guess what I got last week... an e-mail with the list of names of the other 11 kids going on this 8 month adventure with me. I'd been waiting for this e-mail forever! It made everything seem a lot more real and I'm freaking out just a little bit! I'm excited and nervous and not sure what to expect, but it's finally starting to hit me that I'm actually going through with this. (info on the side as to what I'm going through with)

Oh by the way, I named this blog badwithmaps because I literally have the worst sense of direction of anyone I know, I'm always lost, so it's funny that I'm going to be doing a lot of travelling and stuff... I mean, haha, get it?

I'm hoping this year will give me a better understanding of the world, and people in general, and some idea of what I want to do with my life. I hope it is challenging, incredible, motivating and unforgettable. Just thinking about what I am going to do and see and learn is making me fidgety!

But I am going to miss everybody and everything so much! Since I'm out of town for almost all of August, this is my month to pack and all I can think about is which pictures to bring. When I get back we are all going to be a year older but I hope we stay the same - that is, together! I love everyone!

That's all for now, I just wanted to get this set up before I leave. I'll be writing here during the year so put in your email at the bottom right if you want to be updated on what I'm doing. That's you mom and dad! OK bye y'all!
