Chapter IIX: All In Has No Plan B…
Its been a month since I set out on this adventure. A month ago I said goodbye to my friends and family and left to travel across the country to a place I’ve never been to live there for 5 months. 31 days…
This past month has been a whirlwind. It hasn’t felt like a month at all, and to be honest, this little anniversary kind of sneaked up on me. At times (a lot of times) during this past month, I have felt that I’m always playing catch up and trying to figure things out on the fly, the whole “trial by fire” analogy that is over used, and I think that is why this past month has flown by. I believe I am finally caught up and know what I’m doing (until the next curve ball comes) here in Athens. Which I think will slow things down just a little. Its a nice feeling to have a groove and to be flowing. It was a crazy month that got me here tho.
Looking back over the past month, I cant help but notice there were moments that went so perfectly, that there had to be someone up there helping me out. If any one of these critical moments goes any other way, my entire trip is dramatically different. I wont go into details of those moments (ask me when I get home), but I know that if any one of them is even the least bit different, things change. Maybe my transition isn’t as smooth. Maybe I dont enjoy my experience as much as I am. Maybe I write this post from Utah after giving up on Georgia. That might be a little extreme, but the point is, a lot has gone perfect for me in this first month and I’m well aware of my involvement in that.
This past month I have tried to go all in and make the most of my experience and I believe I have done quite well for myself thus far. Those moments dont happen by themselves, you have to push the first domino, and i’m fine with that. I’m pleased with my personal progress but still not satisfied. I’m very aware that I’m only here for a short time, and that back home you can sit around and let things come to you, but when you only have one semester, you have to push the envelope to make the most of your time. I’ve done a lot to push the envelope over the past 31 days, and each day I have gotten more comfortable in pushing my limits. Every day brings a new opportunity and I dig that.
So what opportunities does the next month hold in store? What do the next four months hold in store? I dont know that any better than I knew what the first month had planned for me. All I know is i’m gonna continue to go hard, and go all in with my experience and adventure here. Because as our football team says “All In Has No Plan B”.
I miss cheering in the MUSS.
I learned I love UGA football more than I thought I would. GO DAWGS!
