I can’t believe there is less than a month away before I leave to study for 3 weeks at the National University of Malaysia. Although I am incredibly excited for what is to come, I do not believe I have properly considered how much I still have to prepare before I leave. With Christmas just around the corner and having planned for a small road trip for New Years, I have not exactly had time to sit down and iron out all the smaller details for Malaysia.
Before departing though I have a list of things I think are necessary to complete. Although I have done a fair amount of research into all the tourist destination and the “must see things” and “must do things” in Malaysia, I want to create my own personal list of things I must do while over there as to make sure I seize this opportunity to its fullest extent. I also wish to have a catch up with the rest of the group before we all leave as I feel it would be a nice bonding experience and would give us all a chance to get to know each other. I also need to inquire into what type of project/study I’ll be undertaking while I am over in Malaysia as I would like to try and familiarise myself with the subject as much as possible before commencing.
Nevertheless, I am extremely excited for this big adventure to begin and I am counting down the days.
