One Step Closer

I'm one step closer to going to Spain!
Yesterday I called the financial aid office to ask when my paperwork was going to be processed so that I can know if I am going to be able to go this spring semester. The lady told me I would get the same amount I was going to receive for the fall semester in London (I didn't end up going to London) so that means I am able to go!!! I am 89% sure I am going and I am so excited! That's going to be me at la Plaza Mayor! :D I really can't wait. It's going to be the adventure of a lifetime!

I've never done anything big like this so I am reaaaaally super extra excited to the max. It has to happen.

Fingers crossed, positive thoughts, and happy prayers,

Spain, My Friend!

Spain, my friend! That's where I hope to be! 
I really want to go to Salamanca, Spain this coming spring semester 2012! So I've applied for financial aid and depending on whether or not I receive financial aid, I will begin to prepare for my beautiful trip to Spain! If not then I won't stop dreaming... I will work hard to make this happen.

I've put my dreams on hold for far too long and I really want to make them happen from now on. I received a scholarship from CHCI or the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, and I hope that with that bit of money I can pay for part of my trip. I'm so excited and I really hope I can keep this blog going from Spain. It would make me veeeery happy to make one of my dreams come true! So fingers crossed, positive thoughts, and happy prayers!
