Going, going, going. That’s all that I’ve seem to have been doing lately.

With no breaks, I begin to think “what is sleep?” It is a non-existent luxury.

But I must keep pressing: I have to get my gap year proposal done, and it has to be perfect.

I write a list of things that I must accomplish for the day. I write it, then re-write it again. Every re-write brings a new addition to the list.

The date of departure lingers, the date approaches with quick leisure, and the days count down: there are too many but then again not enough.

A new life-changing experience ahead: it’s exhilarating, enchanting, exciting!

So much to do, so much to plan, so much, so much….
