|So today I had a pint of blood taken out of me. It was not as bad as I expected, but it's also creepy to see a bag of your own blood fill up over time. And then I started thinking about the symbolism of blood and where my blood might go and got way to metaphysical for a Monday afternoon. But I'm excited for some reason, I feel like I've done something right by giving blood. Anyway, on Saturday I got a letter that may change my life. FSU is offering me an opportunity to study abroad for 12 months for my freshman year in London, Florence, Valencia, or Panama City (In the Republic of Panama, not the city in Florida). This is what I've wanted for so long, to be able to study abroad and have my time there mean something and be relevant to my education. It's weird, you here about how peopel get random letters that give them something so amaznig...and it's happened to me. And it's really hard to believe that my life is going somewhere beyond what I am now....I suppose this is where I realize this chapter of my life is ending and a new one is beginning. So forth begins the transition.
