Today's the day

Today's the day!  I leave in just a few short hours.  Bags are packed and ready to go.  Of course the weather just gott horrible again.  I hope that I can get out of KCI now.  My puppy is sad, I think she knows I am leaving for awhile.  I'm going to miss her a lot.  Well, its time to shower up and head out.  I hope everyone enjoys their New Years and I'll see you all soon.

Almost there

Here we are, just 11 days away from the trip starting.  I'm so excited that it's almost time.  Of course I'm mortified as well, but yeah I am so excited. I made it through all my classes, and am officially a 7th semester nursing student now, which in and of itself is pretty exciting.  I'm 32 weeks from having my BSN at this point. That's only 26 weeks of class.  The time is going to go by so fast.  I can't wait for that time to come, and I know that this trip is just one more aspect of getting me through to that point.
Enjoy your holidays, and hopefully you will all start leaving me some comments soon.  If we have internet when we get there, I will try to do video blogs rather than typing while I am there.

Last immunization

Started the typhoid meds today...  Next Friday I will be completely immunized for the trip!  Sent off my application for my visa yesterday, and got some more financial aid to help.  Down to just a few more days to go.  27 days until we leave.

New information.

On Monday, we got our flight information. So that's a big move in the right direction!  I have about an hour layover on the way there, but on the way home I have a 9 hour layover in DC!!! So all of my DC or DC nearby friends, come get me and let's go do some stuff while I am stuck there.  I land at 9 AM and don't leave until 6PM so let's have some fun!!
I start my typhoid medication today as soon as I get home from classes.  I also have my visa application ready to be turned in today, and a request for increased financial aid is going to be turned in today as well, they told me they'll give me more money to help pay for this trip when I was in there yesterday, so looking forward to that.  I will need to get my financial aid set up to be direct deposited though so that it will just move into my account without me having to worry about it.

I don't really have anything else to update, so I am going to sign off for now.  Leave me some comments if there's anyone out there who's reading this.
