London, Round Trip

Today is a very exciting day, because this afternoon...


It took me a few hours to sort everything out- I had been discussing taking the same flight with my friend (and hopefully roommate) Adrienne and I found the flight on the site we were advised to use. I went home yesterday and had discussed it with my parents, so around noon, I was ready to hit that 'purchase' button. But then I got scared. I'm not officially accepted to Queen Mary yet, and our travel dates are determined by our specific college. So I called the study abroad office and left a message, which they returned after my first class ended at 3:30.

The call was interesting in that the office made some very quick decisions that I didn't expect. I had contacted them basically saying that I had found my flight and there were few seats, but I didn't know if I could buy it due to not being accepted yet. When my study abroad advisor called me back, she said, "I'm looking at your transcript now and the classes you're taking and I'm just going to say that you're going to get in. You're in good academic standing and all I need is your reccommendation, so... I'm just going to accept you. Congratulations!"

I'm still kind of afraid to celebrate all of this excitement... I want to wait for documentation or something official, just to make sure. But I'm still pretty jazzed that my ticket's all confirmed! I'M GOING TO LONDON!!!
