On Being Totally (Un)Prepared

One month from now, I will be in Strasbourg, France.  Just one month. What seemed to be a long summer went by in the blink of an eye.

But what have I done in the meantime? I am going to another country, and me and my type-a personality have a constant need to feel completely and totally prepared. But I don’t, and this, as usual, makes me panic.

Now, I realize that there is no way that I will feel 100% prepared until I am in France, with an apartment, bank account, a cell phone, and internet, but I can’t help but feel like there is more I should do, even though I can’t do much of anything. As much as I would like to have a place to live, I can’t look at apartments until I am there. And besides, my contact has still not been able to get me information about the apartment I am being offered because of les vacances, and I am very hesitant to reach out to apartments until I have the information on housing from my school that will hopefully be cheap or free.

But alas, there are probably about 10000 more reasons as to why I should, or do feel unprepared, but all there is to do is try not to panic too much, and focus on what the heck I am I am going to pack.

Have you ever felt this way? Feel free to share your thoughts below
