Classes and worries about the Field Programs

Final class schedule and figuring out what I want to do in each country.

semi-overcast 60 °F

This voyage we have class everyday on the ship, but this time around we have "A days" and "B days". I think it will be a bit less stressful. I've also chosen classes that should be a lot of fun instead of really terrifying like last time around. I got a work study scholarship again for the Spring so I'll be working in the student life office two hours a day when were at sea. I hope to do that later on in the evening so I have time to lay out, work out and relax during the afternoons on the ship. Here's my class schedule:

A days:
Travel Writing 10:45am - 12:00pm
South Asian Music 12:15pm - 1330pm

B days:
Global Studies 9:20-10:35am
Music Culture 10:45-12:00pm

All of the final field program info has been released so I've been scouring those trying to see what I want to have planned in every country. The summer trip was much easier in that respect for two reasons. The first was that Sarah and I pretty much wanted to do all of the same things so I didn't have to worry about finding people to travel with in country. The second is that it's pretty obvious what you want to do in places like Greece and Italy, but Singapore or Manaus, Brazil? Bit more difficult and not very easy to plan for so it looks like I'll be going with the flow a bit more (and if you know me you know how difficult that is haha). Later on I'll post the trips I've actually decided on doing and the ones I'm planning to do Indy.

It still doesn't feel like I'm actually going again. I keep waiting for it to set it, but I don't think it will until I'm actually on the ship. I've sent my passport into the company I'm using to get visas, bought my plane ticket to the Bahamas and done all sorts of other things, but I think because I was simply hoping to go this time and it wasn't set in stone - it's a little like a dream right now. I'll write more soon!
