|My dad helping me with packing.|
Ever since the countdown had began, my parents and I had been scrambling from home to store getting everything that I needed for this much awaited trip. After all the toothpaste, clothes, cords, and school supplies were gathered, the packing concluded smoothly on Saturday night. Almost considered the most-professional packer I’ve come across, my super hero dad came to the rescue and ensured every item was packed with efficiency. To avoid the disease that goes around during travel season (procrastination), we packed my baggage well in advance to ensure everything works out just as planned.

Coincidentally, today also happens to be Father’s Day. A big thank you to all the fathers for being the biggest support and for guiding their kids through thick and thin. Since the packing was completed smoothly a whole day in advance, I thought it would be nice to thank my parents through two dishes. One happens to be Manicotti and the other was Pound Cake with Lemon Curd and Strawberry Sauce. It was a fantastic way to sit down with my parents before taking a new step in life.
In total, I would say I’m excited yet a tad bit nervous. Everything will be new, but also welcoming. Be it St. Louis, Chicago, or Ithaca, I’m looking forward each and every experience that awaits me.This will be the first step I’m taking as an independent adult and I can’t wait see what the future beholds. Until then, stay tuned because starting tomorrow I’ll be in a new location informing you about my adventures from day 1 until the very end.
