Okay, the thing is, I KNOW I'm going to forget to post something tomorrow, which is why I'm doing one now. This will likely be my last update until I'm in North Carolina, and I definitely did not want to leave you all hanging!
So... How do I feel? Excited. Nervous. Sad. Optimistic. Very very humble. Everyone I've run into the last few days has been super supportive and happy for me. Where did I earn this kind of respect? Honestly -- I love that you all are excited for me and want the best for me, but reminding me of the awesome people I'm leaving behind here isn't making the departure any easier!
I'm trying not to be sad. I'm trying not to think about how I will miss my family and friends so, so much! I'm fighting the urge to NOT WANT to GO! Instead I remind myself of what a huge opportunity this is for me, and continue to list the reasons of why this whole experience will be GOOD FOR ME.
Really. I'll be okay. I'm not going to Kathmandu. I won't have to fight violence, poverty or overpopulation. I can do this. I will survive, and hopefully, become a stronger person for it.
So. There it is. Last one -- for now. I don't know when the next post will come. It all depends on how fast I establish an internet account down there. Don't worry if it takes a few days, or more than that. I'm not lying in a ditch somewhere. I've got people who will make sure I find my way around. :o)
Love to all.
