I’m so ready for this. August 29, 2009

I’ve always longed for an adventure, but responsibility and life always got in my way. Living and studying abroad is something I’ve always wanted to do, but I was comfortable with my life in L.A. Ironically, it’s that comfort with my life that scared me, I could go on with my daily routine and be happy. I knew I had to take a risk and embark on a new adventure.

I fly out in one week, but it still hasn’t hit me that I’m really leaving. I honestly don’t think it’ll hit me until I get off the plane with my life packed in two big suitcases and step foot in Barcelona alone. I don’t have an apartment yet, I still have to find a job and I have no idea what I’m going to pack, but for once in my life I’m okay with not having everything planned. I’m not going to try to control this experience; I’m just going to live my life. I know it’ll be hard at times and I’ll miss my friends and family, but I’m looking forward to the challenge.

I’m so ready for this.

    What a great start to what will no doubt be a fantastic blog 🙂 I am so very excited for you, and look forward to hearing about your journey. I could tell you till I’m blue in the face how amazing Spain is, but I know what you’ll find that out while you’re there! I am trying to plan a trip, and if I do, I’ll be sure to let you know. Best of luck with your move and every adventure that comes your way!!

    Friend, i was excited when i first heard the news of your new chapter in your life, and never thought twice about it. It’s still hard to believe your leaving tommrow, and it prolly wont hit me until sat, when i realize your no longer a freeway away :(. This is your new life, and adventure, enjoy every moment (as i know you will), but don’t forget about us, or to fill us in on your great new start! 🙂

    My girl is a woman!

    Yesterday I saw your car and thought to myself, “Diane’s home!”…
    I miss you, but knowing you are pursuing your dreams and living life with purpose, balance and joy is inspiring.

    Enjoy the beautiful city and say hi to Gaudi for me.
