2 more to go...

Two weeks... updating from the last time:
Visa ? check !
List of things ? check !
Dentist ? check !
So things are really rolling now... I only have to deal with a few translations, pack my stuff, and actually get on the freakin' plane. You know how I said last time that it hadn't hit me yet ? Well, it's starting... I now officially have more fingers and toes than days in this city. There are a lot of people I want to see and spend time with before I leave. I'd like to spend some time at home, but it's almost impossible. I still have to make some money so I can't just quit work. But hey, one day at a time... all 14 of them hahaha.
Today was kind of weird, I really didn't wan't to be alone, but I just felt that the person I wanted to be with wanted just that. Damn I'll miss you.
I wonder what it will feel like to wake up on the other side of the world. I wonder what it'll feel like when I wake up in a year and the whole adventure is over...
Musings for another day.

Happy Bday Sweetie !

Here's where I celebrate another year of existence of a person very dear to me. Happy birthday Sweetie... For those of you who still don't know her, she is an amazing friend of mine, one who I first met 9 years ago, but ever since we met again last year she has been one of the closest and most important persons in my life. One of those select few for which I would happily lie in traffic for should she ask me to.
I hope you have an incredible day, week, and years to come. A huuuge hug for you, which I intend to deliver personally very soon. You're already getting a lot of my writing today, so I won't make you blush here any more than I need to... happy birthday again !

Time grows near...

3 weeks to go...
School ? check !
Apartment ? check !
Plane ticket ? check !
Visa ? on it...
Suitcase ? check !
Laptop ? check !
List of things I need to take ? still not done...
Dentist ? postponing as much as I can...

Three weeks can seem like a lot for some things, but it's way to little time for others. Ive been trying to squeeze in all the "home experience" I can. Trying to enjoy the little moments, to spend quality time with as many of my friends as possible. I've never been away for that long, but I know it's the small things that get to you. I really wish I could spend more time with certain people, but you do what you can with what you have to work with. And you know what ? It still hasn't hit me. I don't know if it's all the other stuff I've had to deal with, family, work and airline morons, or what, but I'm still not buying that I'm about to leave. I still see at as an abstract future... "someday I'll be in France. " Denial ? Who knows? I'm just waiting for the feeling of ice water down my back.

PS. you can believe in me
