The Adventure Begins

Winter 2015. I've been impatiently counting down the days for years! Now that it's been somwhat decided that next year I'll have the opportunity to spend a semester in Paris, it seems more unrealistic than ever...even though I had already decided that I'd be going on an exchange as soon as I was accepted to University. I had totally disregarded the possibility of not getting selected to go abroad, not having the financial means to live in a foreign country, and the "worst" case scenario - not getting selected to go to Paris. Everything I've done throughout the past three years feels like it has been leading up to this moment: from carefully selecting co-op jobs to trying to maintain a certain GPA to keep scholarships.
