I’m off to St Petersburg for my MUN trip tomorrow morning. I’ve been up in my room packing for an hour and a half, and so far all I’ve got left is the last-minute packing like toothbrush and computer. I’m excited for the trip part but sort of nervous about the MUN meetings themselves. I don’t feel as well prepared as I was last year, nor as knowledgable. My resolutions aren’t that fantastic and I’ve already set my mind on not trying to get them passed but rather spend my time debating points and making speeches in favour of or against amendments and resolutions. I didn’t speak much last year so I figure I should this time.
We have a really busy trip chock-full of sightseeing and dinners, plus the three days of the actual MUN meetings. I had all my outfits planned out and written down, so packing this time was a breeze. The only tricky part was the fact that we’re not sure what the weather is like. The forecast says it’s fine weather (from -2C to 10C) but then there’s pictures of very light snow. We’ve been told to dress warm and bring our winter gear. I hate winter trips. They’re always heavy and bulky and seem excessive.
Anyway, I’m going to be in Russia from Saturday to Saturday, so I’m staying there a week. I will be sharing a room with my friend Skillet and another girl, Pasta. There’s four boys coming with us and our two teacher chaperones.
I should be off to sleep, I have to get up at 4, be at the airport at 6, and fly at 8AM.
Goodnight everyone and see you sometime,
