One week… Wow! I literally don’t even know what to say right now. Well, in this case write, but whatever you get what I mean haha. So yeah, we leave in a week and the only thing I keep thinking about is how the hell did it come so fast!? I swear it was just yesterday that we even came up with this crazy idea, and now I have exactly one week until departure. I’m so stoked don’t get me wrong! It’s just that… I guess I just can’t believe it’s actually about to happen. I mean I always knew the day would come, but now it’s actually almost here! Like WTF! I’m freaking out a little if you can’t tell haha… My emotions are going nuts. When people say they are on an emotional roller coaster I totally get it. Because dude am I on one insane freaking ride right now. I’m getting all the feels right now… But the one that stands out the most is how gosh darn excited I am to see where this ride leads us!
Now, I could probably go on and on about how I’m feeling and stuff, but I’m pretty sure that would get pretty redundant. So, I kind of just want to take you guys through my process of preparing over this next week. Is that cool with y’all? It’s important to note that in my mind I heard all of you agree…
So on that note… I’ll just get right into it! So I’m completely packed. I have nothing to stress out about this week because Cameron and I have been able to get it all done in a timely fashion. I also have been able to spend every waking second with either family or friends. And, I’ve been able to say just about all of my “good byes”… That’s great right!? Yeah…. If it were all true… Everything I just said to you is a complete lie. Cameron and I have SOOOO much to do this week. I haven’t even started to think about packing. I’m not spending nearly as much time with family as I would like to. And I definitely have not said any of my “good byes” yet. So yeah. That’s where I’m at right now. Can someone please just give me a cloning machine already? I mean like come on, It’s not like I’m asking for that much… Anyways, let’s try and get back on track shall we?
Getting right into the nitty gritty, when you leave your home town, and in our case leave your country of origin indefinitely, you never really get to spend as much time with your loved ones as you would like. In all honesty, you’re never going to feel like you got enough time in. Because at the end of the day, you are still leaving them and you don’t know exactly when you will see them again. All I’m trying to say is that even if I spent every second of everyday with family up until the point we left, I still would not feel like it was enough. Does that make sense? At least, that’s how I feel right now. But, I also can’t sit here and dwell on that. All I can do at this point is just enjoy the time I have left. And when that time is over with, we begin looking forward to planning their trips to visit us someplace freaking epic!
