So, it's kind of crazy to think that I'm heading off in about a month. The whole trip has seemed really far off, but time keeps on passing, and inevitably I will actually get on a plane and head to the other side of the world. I've been thinking about all sorts of things that I'm assuming are going to be different abroad. For example, I was brushing my teeth the other day, and I realized how much I use running water. I'm by no means even beginning to suggest that they don't have running water in India, but what I am beginning to realize is that life abroad is going to be very different. Getting up each morning and not simply being able to turn on the faucet and drink water is going to take some getting used to. I'm sure there are going to be cultural differences that make my relatively weak immune system, and thus my inability to use running water, seem like non-issues, but regardless these thoughts have crossed my mind. Overall, my excitement is building, but I still can't believe I'm going. I guess you could say that it hasn't hit me yet.
Well, I guess that's all for now.
