    arkie- just generally freaking out about the fact that there's such little time left, there's so much to do, so many changes and i'm nervous about facing them.

    I hear ya. You should be excited too, though! You're moving to the Caribbean (awesome), and you're taking the first step in pursuing your dream (double awesome). Just make sure your mind is right and that you're ready to rock-and-roll the day you step off that plane. Don't extend your visit any longer than you have to--trust me, the Caribbean really starts to suck if you screw up and end up staying longer than you're supposed to. Don't get sucked into the "vacation" crowd. There will be people in your class who go out all the time--just keep in mind, many of them will be gone after first semester. Your one and only job while you're on the island is to complete the coursework with a decent GPA--nothing else matters. Good luck! MANY have succeeded before you. It's very doable. All it takes is steady hard work and a little discipline.

    Hi CuriousD,

    I thought I was the only one to start to freak out. I have wanted to be on this journey for so long and now that it has finally been a route for me to take, I too feel a little overwhelmed at the whole thing. What I do to combat that is talk to God and pray for focus and knowledge. Besides the fact, I have no intention of having to pay for a loan and do nothing with it. It's too costly to go to the island and fool around. We are there soley for the purpose of completing a mission and I don't intend to fail.

    Let the countdown begin!!!

    i completely agree. this island does very weird things to you so if you DO manage to cut stuck in a sticky mess, just please please remember that only you can get yourself out. whether the problem is school, friends, housing or WHATEVER else just push thru and GET OUT!!
