Checking In

When you say that you're studying abroad, people rarely think about the amount of work that moving to another country for five months entails. Already I've:
  • filled out all of my orientation information for Elon's Study Abroad office
  • signed up for a residence hall 
  • pre-registered for classes
  • taken and sent in my photo for my ID
  • purchased airplane tickets
  • ordered my iNext insurance card (it's already been delivered!) 
  • opened my computer account 

But I still have a lot left to do...

  • get my visa
  • make a packing list 
  • actually pack (SCARY)
  • figure out a plan for applying for internships while abroad
  • get new glasses (the ones I have now are breaking and I can't risk being without them overseas!)
  • haircut
  • find out what I should do for a phone while abroad 
  • place my Argos order (for all the things I need for my dorm)
  • pay fees for housing
  • fill out health forms
  • matriculate online (January 7th)
  • make a reservation at a hotel for the days when I'm in St Andrews but can't move into my dorm yet

Basically, I just have to get through finals at Elon and move out of my room here (it'll be so strange to leave after living in it for a year and a half!) and then it will be time to accomplish all of the tasks listed above. It won't be long until I'll have more to share with you!
