It’s #throwbackthursday and I leave for California in a week. Do people use hashtags on WordPress? Well, here’s a relevant throwback from hiking Yellow Mountain in Eastern China last summer. Next Thursday, much like I did last summer, I will be “going out on a limb” (see what I did there) and jumping on a plane bound for Sacramento to spend the semester at California State University in Chico. My face accurately describes my feelings. I’m excited. I’m anxious. I have no idea what to expect, what people I will meet. Made and raised in the South, I can’t fathom a place lacking Chick-Fil-A to bless our hearts and the commonly used word “y’all”. However I’m confident that opportunities I can’t imagine are awaiting. I’ve gotta see what this In-n-Out Burger is all about. St Augustine said “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” I guess I just wanna read the whole book.
