On the Verge

"Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one."
Dr. Seuss

As it seems I can't sleep (and will regret not doing so as I have to be up in 5 hours...) I should use my super-insomnia to write a last-minute entry.

Today really was fun. I met up with some friends to say our goodbyes and promises to meet up at the end of 6 months. It's weird to think that this time tomorrow I'll be in China. Walking through the hallway of the art department I came to know and love too little too late made me feel...weird. I was so happy to be there but I wouldn't let myself really think about it. I guess because I know I'll miss it all. I'll miss my professors, my classes, my friends. Of course, I'll miss family and pets just as much. I can't say that I'm sad, I can't say that I'm anything.

I put off packing and put on a load of stress. I waited until the last day to pack all of my things, which isn't how I normally do things. Everything fits now. My new life for 6 months in 50lbs (dramatic, remember?). I've had almost nothing but good news the past week. I guess this is what "ready" feels like; the relief of acceptance, the elation of excitement, the beginning of change.

I don't feel like writing anything specific now, just my thoughts. I'll make another post about what I packed and how that worked out for me in the near future. Stay posted.

Bonus: It's funny that even Momentum knows what's up. Check out that featured location and quote, maybe the world is giving me an e-sign?
