Today is the big day...my goodbye party. In some ways it's cool to be going to a new experience. In some other ways, it's gonna be sad because this will likely be the last time that I'll be seeing people in a large group like this again. Today I spent a lot of time looking at my apartment and coming up with an action plan to get everything moved out in time for my trip. Having sought advice from many people, I can say that this is not going to be like any packing that I have ever done previously, but I am still looking forward to it.
Besides the workpapers, which I didn't complete, I have nothing really left to do other than to begin the process of moving out. But first...party party party! I have spent this day relaxing because after more than 3 years of extensive and exhaustive travel, I need the time off! I will write more tomorrow when I get back after my party.
