And this is it. In two and a half hours, I leave for the airport, gone from the States for an entire year.
My feelings at this point are weird. A bit of melancholy at having to leave so much behind, but at the same time very excited. I wasn’t able to sleep last night because I kept thinking of things I didn’t want to forget, but nervousness hasn’t really been much of a problem.
Anyways, I’m hoping to be able to sleep well on the plane. I’ve got my travel pillow and I’m plenty tired, so hopefully I’ll pass right out and the flight will go fast.
Next post: Germany.
