Darren Criss is doing a run of Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway, so going to New York sound like a fantastic idea. Unfortunately, I will not be going to see the love of my life performing in his second Broadway show because it’s a little bit out of budget at the moment because…
I’M GOING ON EXCHANGE!!!
Broadway won’t be my next adventure (it will happen one day), but I have been officially accepted to University College Roosevelt in Middelburg, Netherlands for the 2015-2016 school year! The dream has become a reality and I’m having a hard time expressing my excitement in proper sentences (I may have teared up a little bit when I opened the email in history class). This opportunity has been my biggest motivator this year. One of the reasons I chose Glendon was the exchange component of the iBA degree – I have been looking forward to this moment since grade 12.
Now that I’m 100% sure that I am going to be living in the Netherlands for the 2015-2016 year, the fun part starts – that is the “fun” part of figuring out how to relocate my life to another country… for a year! I’ve never lived away from home, except for the 5 weeks in Chicoutimi for Explore (but that was still Canada), so it will be a brand new adventure for me. I have 2 weeks before my summer courses start so I’m spending most of my time doing research. My family and I are looking into flights and all the pre-departure things that have to be organized such as travel/study visas, health insurance and figuring out how to pack for a year.
I’m really excited to share my stories with you as I embark on this new chapter in my school career and life.
