Am leaving now for the boat! I can't wait to find out who I'm living with.. Last night was a blast. Once I finally got everything done from summer quarter at Ohio State, I was able to meet up with a friend from OSU at a pub called Maxwell Plum. From there we went to a night club that reminded me a bit of Westwood Brew Company, but much more crazy and much more busy. There were a lot of sailors in uniform, and a lot of people standing around with beers in their hand saying "Semester At Sea?" at people as they walked by, hoping to meet more more more of us.
So far I've met some great people and I'm very excited for my first day onboard. Got a full 5 hours of sleep last night and am ready to go spend an hour in line checking in. MV Explorer, here I come; au revoir Canada!
