Countdown to London

Before I sign off for the holidays, I wanted to share something I didn't expect to encounter about traveling abroad. While I expected finances and the general getting everything together to be nerve racking and stressful, I didn't think saying my goodbyes would necessarily be as sad and scary as they are.

Did anyone else feel like this before studying abroad/moving? Today I visited my grandparents out of town for the last time before I leave. We all had a good time, but at the end of the visit I was so anxious and sad to be saying goodbye. I don't see my grandparents as often as I'd like to, but I didn't think I would be choking back tears!

Now I can only imagine how I'll be when I say goodbye to my parents. Especially my mom. My mom and I are best friends, so I know I'll be semi-balling my eyes out. And not a cute cry. A red, puffy eyes, walrus sounds, ugly cry. Not what I would like to look like in an airport with tons of people around.

Any advice or stories would be appreciated! I can't believe I leave in less than two weeks!!
