A few months ago, my sister came over and was super excited to show me something. She comes over and handed me a piece of paper to read. As I read it out loud “congratulations Brienna Haro you’ve been accepted to Portland university on an academic scholarship .. etc” I then was very excited as well. Fast foreward to Today, as I say goodbye as she leaves to Portland, words can’t express how excited I am. Sad you’re leaving but I know you’re leaving for a good reason. I’m super proud of you and just know I’ll always be just a phone call away. I know what ever life decides to throw your way, you’re going to come out on top, and even a little bit higher . Love you brie!
Turns out I'm leaving for the beautiful city of Tirupati tonight (for college). I'm at the airport now. I'm gonna keep you guys posted throughout my journey (like the five of you that are actually following)! I am super excited!! The air quality index of the place that I'm going to is 29 currently! That is INSANE...Especially compared to New Delhi (where I've been living so far). The AQI in Delhi is always more than 300 in the summers and more than 400 in the winters.
Also, the light pollution is really low. It's an epic Bortle Class 4 location. The milky way will be pretty impressive in the sky. I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing that because I have NEVER EVER EVER seen more than like fifteen stars in the sky. EVER.
I know. I'm crazy about the night sky. So that's pretty much the only thing my brain is spending its resources to think about and look forward to.
We’re been playing around with “Going Away to College” and some more songs from @blink182’s #enemaofthestate album in celebration of one of our favorite records turning 20. Would you be interested in hearing this song with the full #band sometime?

College and Independence After an Eating Disorder: What the Experts say. New blog at www.jdouellette.com - link in bio. I am very excited about this collection of pieces to go with my College Readiness: Expert Advice on How to Handle Independence with Transitional Age Children post and handout - in addition to hearing from experts, the conference video from the Eating Disorders at Home Conference contains powerful and important discussion on navigating more independence from the perspective of a mother and a daughter who affirm that transitions and independence work best when combined with a solid plan, lots of communication, and realistic expectations. Failing to plan is planning to fail and we all share the goal of WINNING the fight against an eating disorder #eatingdisorders#college#transitions#support#goingawaytocollege#livedexperience
