This fall I will be registered as a student in Green Mountain College, but officially I will be spending the semester abroad at Prescott College in Arizona as an eco league student from GMC.
I arrived here two days ago by a plane flying out of Newark, NJ. I arrived in Phoenix, AZ where it was 100 degrees and took a shuttle to Prescott. We passed through a region of land I am so unfamiliar with, full of cacti and desert and humidity for hundreds and hundreds of miles.
I arrived and moved into the house in which I’m staying and promptly began to realize this experience I am about to have is going to be so vastly different than what I had anticipated, because although I had known what I was doing- I’ve never been this far west before and it’s completely different than anywhere I’ve ever gone.
My body is still having a lot of difficulty adjusting to the time difference and my brain is feeling almost as hazy as the humid buzz surrounding everything else here. Hoping I can adjust to secada life… I begin my block semester tomorrow.
Good luck on the upcoming semester to all of my loved ones at GMC- I’m missing you so much!
