Day four of fourteen has begun with a seven hour train ride from Prague to Budapest. What to do to pass time? Blog, of course.
I’ve talked a lot about my past. You all probably have a good grasp of how these past few months have been for me but I’m fairly certain not many of you know what I have ahead of me. It’s the kind of stuff that has me still excited and still motivated even though I’ll be leaving Europe in less than 2 weeks.
First and foremost, I can’t wait to see my family. I hope they know that’s what I’m looking forward to most. This excursion has left me away from my family for the longest period in my life. Even at RIT, I don’t go more than two months without a visit from them or a trip back home. It’ll be good (an understatement) to finally see them in person again.
I’m also excited to return to Lockheed Martin and continue working with their contracts team. Last year, I got a crash course into how work is carried out. It was quick, only nine weeks, but it’s set me in a good position as I return this summer. I’ll continue learning and hopefully apply what I’ve acquired to a greater amount of job responsibilities.
And lastly, I’m looking forward to my senior year at RIT. It’s scary to think that I’m a year out from graduation. That’ll stay in the back of my mind but this year will be my best at RIT. I’ll be finishing my soccer career (at least at this level of competition). I can’t quite wrap my around that, and as I’m torn that I will have to stay goodbye at the end, I’m going to make sure that I go out the way I want.
I’m so optimistic for everything I have ahead of me. Studying abroad has set me in a good place. Everything around me just feels right. I feel like things are falling into place for me, and that’s a great feeling.
