I am finally settled on-board the MV Explorer for SAS. My roommate is James from Boulder. RIVALS!! But, I think that we can put our rivalry behind us and move forward on this amazing voyage. I have met many friends and think that I am really going to like this ship. Colorado has the 2nd highest enrollment on the ship, with California beating us. I have only met two students from CSU however, the majority of the students from CO are from Boulder. Everyone on the ship is super nice, except for the small percentage of girls that still think we are in High School and NEED to form their cliques and gossip about everything. I cannot wait for this life-changing experience! Just these few hours aboard has opened my mind to a lot of new things. There are about 4 girls for every guy on this trip, which will make it interesting to see what unfolds. I leave from Nassau tomorrow at Noon because we had to wait on some students that were stuck in Florida awaiting their passport. I will post pictures soon-hopefully. The ship gives us minutes for the internet, so I do not want to use them all up within the first couple days because of the amount of time the photos take to upload. If nothing else I will post pictures when I am in port where I can find WiFi. If you wish, and I would greatly appreciate it, you can email me at email@example.com because I can email you back without using my minutes. The ship is beautiful, and my room is actually pretty big considering we are on a cruise. I will post more later. I miss my home in Fort Collins, and my baby Mary Jane, but I am sure in a few days I can get over my homesickness and move forward on this awesome voyage. There are a lot of students who say they "don't care about Facebook, email, or blogs" but I say to them (in my mind) that they must not love their family or friends very much to keep them updated on their lives. I love you all too much to not keep you updated on my voyage, so I will never forget to post on this.
Lots of Love!!
