Okay, so a few last things before I fly off to a foreign country. It's nearly 12:30 a.m. and I have to wake up at 7. Not good. At the moment I'm feeling a bit of stress, a bit of a nervous stomach, combined with girlish excitement. It's finally starting to hit me that I will be away from the States for 3 1/2 weeks. I was finally able to get my camera with my new grant money. Packing has been completed, after unpacking and repacking time and time again. Clothes have been washed and dry cleaned. Traveling size laundry detergent has been found. Basically all travel sized things have been found and purchased. Journal, check. Book, check. Money belt, check. Checking weather.com for updates on conditions in Ireland (high in the 50s and 60s), check. Who knew packing was so stressful? It's been a complete two to three day process all together. And I've completed downloading a few last minute songs from iTunes. I have U2 all ready to listen to, which I thought was appropriate since they're from Ireland. Oh and a few more Jo Bro songs, just because I'm a tad obsessed lately.
Well things have, so far, fallen into place. Now I just have to deal with a fifteen hour plane flight. But I am so excited to be going to Dublin, Paris and London! For family and friends, you can stay updated by following the links on the left side of the blog- where it says "FOLLOW ME IN EUROPE". And I will be sending postcards! Now I'm off to bed. I love you all.
P.S. A reminder to mom, if she happens to read this, STOP stressing. Just keep calm, and carry on. And go take dad to see Night at the Museum 2. *Mooches*
