in 4 days …

… I’ll be back in sunny California. To be perfectly honest with you, it hasn’t really hit me yet. I am totally focused on my exam that I have 10hrs prior to leaving for the airport and haven’t even giving the whole packing process a single thought.

(ok, that might not be true since I’ve been preparing my summer wardrobe for weeks haha)

While I am more than excited to be reunited with my bestie and living right by the beach with her, I am kind of terrified of being away from Mike for such a long time. I am such a baby when it comes to my family and boyfriend. But I know I will have an amazing time and hopefully learn a ton at my internship, so lots of good stuff ahead to keep me distracted!

Here are some pictures from our trip to Laguna Beach over Easter that I just found on Mike’s phone:

    I know how you feel. In 12 days I will be back in Russia for my summer program and it hasnt hit me yet either.

    Don't be afraid to be away from everyone. I havnt seen the man I lived with in 3 weeks and even though I can see him for only 2 days, it is the best thing in the world. (Not to mention the summer program soon!!!)

    You will do wonderful! Good luck, time to see what you can do!

    good luck on your final as well!

    This is bound to be an exciting summer, isn't it?! I'm leaving for Italy in 5 days for a summer course and I'm really excited and a little nervous about being away from my family for so long, but other than that it hasn't hit me yet either…I might be a nervous mess come next week :p
    Have fun in California, it looks like it will be a great trip! :)

    Hey! Es würde mich interessieren was du für ein internship in California machst? Und warum haben du und deine Familie in Laguna Beach gelebt?
