The Importance of Travel

I was reading an article in the latest Cosmo about goals and how you should start writing down your goals because that reinforces just how important they are to you and will no doubt motivate you in order to attain them.  Now, if you know anything about me, you know that I'm ambitious (sometimes too much so), so I have many goals.

But above else, I want to travel everywhere.

See, I already have it planned.  If everything goes right, I'll be able to get all my credits in two years (I know; long time, right?  Well, I'm getting an AA, plus I didn't know what I wanted to major in so I have a bunch of credits that I might not need.  But I'm hoping to schedule an appointment with my counselor to see what they say.) - ending my time at junior college after a fall semester.  Graduation isn't until May, so I would have ample time to travel.  My first trip abroad, I want to explore Ireland (I swear I am going to have an actual drink in an authentic pub to pay homage to my roots!), Scotland, Wales, and England because I'm hoping to study over there.  So not only would I be traveling and taking in the sights and chatting up guys with accents, but I'd be scouting some campuses.  (My dream would be Oxford, but I'll take what I can get.)

In two years, hopefully I'll be able to save up some money to execute this goal of mine.  I'll be 22 years of age (which means I can drink if I choose to , plus 22 is young enough to have fun, but mature enough for something, though I have yet to find out what that is...), and I'll have an AA, which means no stressing about school.  I'm so looking forward to it!

And then if I do get to study abroad, I could go to other nearby countries on the weekends and stuff!

I'm so excited!  I know I need patience, but I think two years is a good time to start planning.

I feel as though I have the world at my fingertips...
