A week before I leave, I am visiting Penn to say goodbye before my trip. Today is the second day of my three day visit and already I feel like I am back at home. I went to see the NSO show (Zanna Don’t) last night and it was awesome. I can’t believe that I am going to spend four months without the amazing and talented people of Penn theatre. Still, it was the perfect way to see everyone again. Today I went to Load-in for Small Fall and I am exhausted, but happy to help. I am also going to help with strike tonight for Zanna Don’t because I don’t have anything better to do and it is another chance to hang out with friends. Tomorrow is an easier day, the only thing I have to do being a Stim meeting. I go home tomorrow night, which is kind of sad, but it will be good to spend the time at home before I leave (plus I still have things to pack). Basically, it has been a theatre filled weekend, but what is my Penn experience without theatre? This weekend has reminded me of all the reasons why I love Penn, Penn theatre, and my amazing and wonderful friends. You guys have no idea how much I will miss you and I know you will all have an amazing semester with the new Freshmen. I can’t wait to hear all your stories when I get back! ❤
So, I am a little less than 2 weeks away from traveling to Scotland and I am still finishing preparing to go. I have to apply for credit for courses (which I haven’t even registered for), I have to pack, the list goes on and on. While I am nervous about the new environment and whether or not I will fit in with the culture, I am excited to start a new life, even if it is only for a few months.
