Hollis Mugford is a sixth semester Professional Music major at Berklee. She is a pop, R&B, and country singer from Virginia. Her passion for writing and travel have inspired her to share her experiences and thoughts with the Berklee community and beyond as she embarks on her first semester abroad in Valencia, Spain.
Only 15 more days until Valencia! My apartment is looking sparser and sparser, my packing list is getting longer and longer, and my patience is getting less and less. I just got my student Visa from the Spanish Consulate’s office this week, and pulled my luggage out of storage. What has seemed like an eternity of planning and anticipation now is finally becoming a reality with every passing day. Only a few days since I’ve completed my finals, and just mere weeks away from leaving the country, I find myself asking how to pass the time. How do you bridge the gap between where you are, where you want to be, and where you will be? It’s like the anticipation of waiting to begin a race. You’re stomach cramped with anticipation, just waiting for the whistle to blow, and before you know it you’ve covered yards of distance and you’re crossing the finish line.
