Hi y’all, welcome back to Cleverly Caroline. Today I’m going to be telling y’all a bit about my plans for this summer. I am super excited for everything I have planned, and even the things I am not so sure about yet.
Let me start with the biggest and most exciting part of this summer: studying abroad. Tomorrow night I am flying to London for six weeks of summer classes. As many of you know, I was a January admit to BU as part of the CGS Boston-London Program. This means that I took the Fall 2018 semester off and am now making it up in London. I haven’t been outside the country very much and I have never been to London so I am incredibly excited for what the beginning of this summer has in store.
After London, I am finally going back home to California. I haven’t been back since leaving for school in January and I miss it a lot. In particular, In n Out and Mexican food are really lacking from my life in Boston. When I’m home, I’m hoping to blog much more and work on some really fun new content for y’all. In addition, my family will be heading down to the San Diego area for vacation so I’m looking forward to spending some time on the beach. Besides that trip, I have no real plans for my six weeks at home, which is kind of worrying for me. Every summer before this I have had a set plan for work or summer camp, so having no idea of what’s to come is new for me.
After my time at home, I will be returning to Boston a few weeks early to lead a service trip for incoming Freshman. The program, called FYSOP or First-Year Student Outreach Project, is something that drew me to BU initially and unfortunately, I was unable to do this program as a Freshman because I started in the Spring semester. The program takes first-years and leaders, like me, to different neighborhoods in Boston and the surrounding area to do service. I am so excited to be a FYSOP Leader and I can’t wait to meet my first-years in just a few short months.
After FYSOP is over, I will be heading back to school for my Sophomore year. I can’t believe I’m a Sophomore already and that my first year of college is already over.
