Getting Nervous...

I am getting a little nervous to be going now. I am quite excited but I still feel just a little in the dark about what I am getting myself into. I am really trying to get things done so I am prepared to leave, but I continue to find myself procrastinating! I just enjoy spending time with people more than cleaning and packing. Is that so wrong?

On the subject of having a tattoo in the PC--- I am supposed to cover up my tattoo while I am working. My tattoo on my forearm means that I will be having to wear a long sleeve blazer in 90 degree heat. Woooo. We shall see how that goes! I'm not sure what perspectives the locals will have of me with a tattoo so I am going to cover it for awhile.

Eeek.... Yay....

Emily's Quote

A friend of mine that is now in Cambodia for the Peace Corps has this quotation on her blogspot. I cannot help but to post it on my own as I prepare to leave. It is absolutely the truth. So thank you Emily!

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time. - T.S. Eliot

Getting ready for a change of life...

So I am sitting here with my computer on my comfortable couch thinking about how life is going to change in a matter of 12 short days. For one, I know that I am not going to be sitting on this couch as of tomorrow night (Jay and I are going to make a run to Goodwill with the kindness of Tony and his truck). I'm hoping that I will have computer access on a somewhat common basis, but there is no way of really knowing until I get there! Life is going to be much different, but I am surely up for it.

I just found out on facebook that I will not be the only one on the plane to Maimi from Seattle for the PC. There is a guy named Desmund that will be with me. Let's hope we can get along for 8 hours! :)

I know I should be working on packing up the apartment and my bags but everytime I get home I just want to procrastinate! What is it about getting the most work done while under pressure with me? I did the same thing during schooling, and for some reason I always did better under these circumstances. I went to the store today and got some of the essentials that I hadn't bought yet. Wow, essentials can be expensive! I am wondering how it is I am going to fit all of my stuff into two bags equalling 80 lbs. Let's call it a magic act for now. Being a blind female can be quite costly to the weight restrictions I am noticing. The amount of contact stuff and feminine products are really starting to look like I can do without. (Ya ya I know that's impossible).

Little things are what are on my mind. I have just been trying to focus and yet, I just feel like I have a major case od ADHD. So much stuff to do and so little time! And what's worse is I ran out of coffee this morning so now I am stuck at home at 11 o'clock at night with no motivation... Ha and to think this life is going to be a piece of cake compared to the one I am getting myself into in a matter of a week and a half! Stay tuned...
