This blog will be used to document my travels upon graduating (eek!) in May. Which is 111 days from now, not that I am counting [panicking] or anything. That being said, I am looking forward to a non-internship summer. Except I am having a little bit of anxiety about not interning this summer. Interning ROCKS. Le sigh.
Luckily, I have a lot to look forward to in the post-apocalyptic months following May. I was awarded the John Sweeney Fund from UNC's School of Journalism and Mass Communication, which I will use to study tech start-ups in London, Berlin and Amsterdam. I am grateful for the opportunity to travel to Europe and could not be more excited about all that I will learn! My trip is tentatively planned to span June and July 2013, during which I will be posting as frequently as possible (all hostels have wifi, right?) about my adventures. A huge thanks to Jason Kilar for financing the John Sweeney Fund!
Upon returning from Europe I will pack my quaint little east coast life into a minivan and drive across the United States to San Francisco, which is my final destination as a post grad (a post grad?? a reallll person? ew). I have yet to decide on a particular route, so if you have any advice please let me know! I am torn between Denver and Austin, which is making it quite difficult to choose between the typical northern route or southern route.
And I want nothing to do with Kansas.
Seeing as I usually pack an entire car to drive from Chapel Hill to Charlotte for winter break, packing for this adventure is guaranteed to be a nightmare and will most definitely involve me sobbing on my bedroom floor screaming about how I don't want to grow up. I'm sure you are dying for me to blog about those parts.
If you have any best practices for shrink wrapping shoes, they would be greatly appreciated- otherwise half of the minivan will be dedicated to Vans. And disregard the above complaints- I cannot wait to be back in San Francisco. I Left My Heart in San Francisco (and I'm driving to fetch it): A Blog by Jane Hall.
Stay tuned, lovely people!
