Exams are winding down and I’m looking forward to my amazing experience in Europe coming up in just a little over a week. I’m really excited but just as nervous – I’ve never been away from my family for a long period of time and I’ve always been a nervous flyer! It helps that one of my good buddies will be attending the conference with me, and since I’ve already been to Turkey last year I know travelling something that I can do and is well worth it!

I guess that’s my first take home message for you guys; you need to step out of your comfort zone and try new things no matter how scary it is (as long as its safe!)

Secondly, I guess now is that time to announce that in the past year at Laurentian University I have figured out that – although Psychology is way cool and interesting – it isn’t the right path for me. But something I learned a few weeks ago is that 80% of students change their mind, and not all is lost! My credits will STILL transfer and I can still graduate in time even when Im completley switching majors!

Take-home message #2: Its OKAY to change your mind dudes! Change it and change it again its part of how you grow. A year in the wrong program is not a wasted year; I still learned alot of cool things and if I ever get recruited for cash cab and the cab driver asks me what a Neuron is and the function of a NeuroTransmitter is; I will win money!

I hope you all have super cool summer plans, I’ll be blogging through LU throughout my journey in Germany at International Student Week so make sure to check it out!

xoxo, Jess
