Yesterday, after a long day of cleaning the house & packing, I finally got to bed at midnight. Then I got up at 4:00 AM. Fun times. We loaded up the car, drove to Memphis, & said goodbye to Joshua. I’m going to miss him terribly! Our flight went well, & we landed without mishap. Now we're in our hotel room getting some much needed rest, we're exhausted from preparing for the trip!
We all got to pack one large suitcase, one small suitcase, & a backpack. Then there's an extra suitcase that mom & dad are sharing, & mom & I have our purses. So we're loaded down, but we managed to fit everything we need in them. I’m proud to say I had two pounds to spare on my large suitcase!

We’ve been planning this trip for so long, about three years. Now that it’s here I don’t know what to think. I can’t quite comprehend the fact that I’m leaving now & will be gone for six months. Every now & then it just hits me & I’ll think, “Wait, what?”

I’ve gone through so many phases about how I feel towards this trip.
A year later: “Wait, that will be my Senior year. I don’t want to go!”
Another year later: “I can’t wait to get away and have an adventure!”
Two months ago: “I don’t want to leave my friends, but I want an adventure. I’m so confused!”
A week ago: “No, no, no!”
Now that I’m off: “Yay!!!”
I'd love to hear from you in the comments!
