And I’m OK with that.

Typically, I like to have a plan. But I’ve adopted a Spanish attitude about this whole, semester abroad. I spent the first two weeks of filling out applications being frustrated at the system. The Universidad de Navarra assigns course numbers to some courses, but not to all. And the course numbers don’t necessarily designate the level of the course. So figuring out appropriate courses to take can be quite difficult. But I’ve decided to forego my frustration and be calm. I know it will work out, and being an uptight American won’t help me while I am there.
