A little nervous, a little excited... perhaps normal feelings before leaving on a trip such as this. To be honest, the buildup to saying goodbye to my parents was a little difficult, I became more nervous and anxious the closer we got to the airport. However once I was through security I was just fine. For the first time I stepped into the full body scanner, not sure what the problem is. Regardless of the nerves and such, I am thankful for my wonderful parents, who have been encouraging, loving, and all around awesome. What an opportunity to study, see, and explore Israel and the surrounding countries. Hopefully I can get some sleep on the plane.
