Focusing to get some sleep, I looked at the clock in my nightstand again: 11:46. I had been rolling in bed for two hours and had not been able to fall asleep. I tried once more to turn off the voice in my head that kept buzzing as my eyelids felt heavier and heavier...
It was still dark outside when the alarm clock started to sound. My natural reflex to hit the snooze button was blocked by the sudden thought that made my heart skip a beat: it was the big day. I got out of bed with a jump and ran to my closet; a thin, petite, brunette girl glanced back at me from the bathroom mirror and made me stop to examine her. She brushed her long brown hair out of her face to reveal a big smile and a pair of eager dark eyes that seemed to speak for themselves. I gave a last glance to her and hurried to my closet thinking of how pleased she looked with herself.
While changing my clothes, my mind was already busy with last minute mental checks: "Toothbrush: check. Passport: check. Tickets: check. IPod: check..."
My mom's voice coming from downstairs revealed me that my last homemade breakfast was served and that I should hurry if I didn't want to miss my flight.
After eating breakfast I hurried to pick up the stuff I left in my room. With a strange feeling in my stomach, I walked out of my bedroom and went to the car to meet my mom, dad, and brother who were already in there. It was now very bright outside, so bright that the sun almost didnīt let me see for the last time the house surrounded by palm trees and a beautiful garden that had been my home for the past two years.
The airport was crowded as usual, I checked in my luggage and said goodbye to my family. "Call us as soon as you get there," my mother said. "I will mom, don't worry," I heard me saying, and before we knew it, we were both crying and holding each other.
Shortly, I got in the plane and prepared myself for take-off. In just a few hours, I was going to be in the city of Philadelphia and stepping into the grounds of the University of Pennsylvania.
