Hello there, friends and family. I just wanted to spend a moment to say welcome! I haven’t told anyone about the existence of this blog, so this will probably be the first post that most of you see. Instead of making a separate study abroad blog like most of my friends have, I decided to just combine it with this one. Yup, shocking. Elaine sometimes blogs on her free time.
Well, I’m officially packed and ready to go. Am I really leaving the country for 6 months? Damn. Is it weird to say that the two things at the top of my mind that I am going to miss the most (besides friends and family) are legit Mexican soft tacos and pho? That just shows you how much I love food, but I am sure I will be trying a lot of exotic cuisines while I am abroad. At the top of my list is Shanghai’s drunken shrimp, as recommended by Alex, the assistant dean at Anderson. He was very adamant about those shrimps, so I can’t disappoint him. I’ll be sure to email him a picture when I finally try them. Anyways, enough with talking about food, its time to eat for real. For my last dinner in the US, I’m going to enjoy a juicy steak prepared by my dad (:
Feel free to follow my blog. I really look forward to telling you all about my adventures (that I will hopefully have)!
