In just a few more than 100 hours, I’ll be boarding a plane to England, a place to which I have never been. It’s also the place that I will be spending much of the next seven months. I’m excited for all the possibilities it holds and nervous about leaving my home behind for so long. I can’t stop asking myself, ‘What will it be like?’ Is Oxford a romantic place, as it’s depicted in His Dark Materials?  Is it like Hogwarts? What is the role of the various colleges?  I saw on a map of the city that St. Catz is pretty far on the city center.  How will that impact my time there?  How cold will it be in the winter?  Will I hang out with Americans, or will the exchange students mix with the British?

I have so many questions, and their answers will come in time.  For now, all I can do is pack.
