Despite my earlier statement about the ease of traveling from island to island, I can count the number of times I
have can recall visiting New Providence ...on one hand. Since the majority of those times I have visited was when I was a child; completely unaware of the island and it's cities, there was never a chance for me to consider the opportunities that come with living there. Nassau, being the capital of this glorious archipelago, is naturally more fast paced than the other islands. There are tons more people (and traffic) and a need to be that much more aware of your surroundings. I was told, though, that once you get use to the hustle and bustle the place isn't all that bad, even for someone from Freeport.
And so, I'm waiting patiently to get there. I've got a less than two weeks to wait after which, I've got an additional two weeks to get settle in before the semester begins. In all my readiness, the realization of leaving home to start your own life (or, at least, college life) has finally kicked in for me. Thought I'm not looking forward to being homesick, I'm excited --excited about the wonderful art courses I will be taking, the interesting people I will meet and reconnect with, and the opportunity!
