Thoughts in anticipation of studying abroad all girls know to be true

I'm going to be studying abroad this coming semester in Florence, Italy, and I am so excited! Here is what is running through my mind as I prepare for the coolest semester yet!

1. Omg, I am so excited!!!

2. The flight is like way over 8 hours and that is a long time to sit still!

3. I've never flown alone, so I hope I can figure out the airport myself.

4. What will my apartment look like?

5. I can't wait for the gelato!

6. And the pizza.

7. I think we get to learn how to make homemade pasta. I will cook for everyone when I get back!

8. I'm going to miss my friends so much!

9. I'm going to cry when I say goodbye to my family.

10. But, I am really excited to go sight seeing when I get to Florence.

11. And drink the best wine while wandering in vineyards!

12. Apparently, the pizza is different in Italy. How can pizza be different?  

13. It's fine because I'll still love the pizza. Who doesn't like pizza?!

14. It's supposed to be hot there. Maybe we will try to find a beach!

15. I can't wait to travel!! Omg I can do a whole Europe tour!

16. But what country will I go to first?!

17. And how will I only choose about 10 countries to visit?

18. Ugh, I'm having first world problems here.

19. What if I forgot to pack something?

20. I have my holiday presents all set! I can get people stuff from Italy!

21. I should have left more room in my suitcase to take stuff back with me!

22. I am going to try all of the food.

23. Is it wrong that I am most excited for the food?

24. But I'm also so excited to see the sights, and live in another freaking country for four months!!!

25. No other semester is going to compare to this!

26. I'm going to miss my mom.

27. And my dad.

28. And my best friends.

29. Okay, now I'm sad. But I'm still going to be in ITALY!!!

30. Okay, nevermind. I'm not that sad anymore. See you in four months everyone!!!

31. I'm going to write everything down!

32. And take so many pictures!

33. I'm going to learn to be more spontaneous, and go out of my comfort zone!

34. I am so pumped to go!!!

35. Can I just get on the plane already??!!

36. Definitely not going to be able to sleep on the plane - I'm so excited!!!

37. Pizza, pasta, gelato, oh my!!

38. This trip is going to change my life!!

39. I can't stop smiling!!

40. I am so excited!!!!

See you in Italy everyone!!!
