Looking at the loaner items displayed on the table, I suddenly realized that there are only two weeks left until my actual Brown trip, which I will have to leave my family to travel and study at a place 2560 miles away from California, and this is why the orientation that happened today was really important.
The meeting ended with Don's introduction and demonstration on the various loaner items that can be borrowed to the trip. As more and more preparations are done for the trip, it means that the departing day is getting closer and closer. The trip no longer seems like a untouchable dream, but a experience that I will soon face to challenge myself for my own responsibilities and maturity. The excitement is still there, but the nervousness and anxiety is getting larger and larger. I hope everything will be fine and I will not cry on the departing day.
