those words can't even come close to describing how I feel about these next four months. It is coming so soon. august 21st feels like it is days away. am I prepared? ha I don't have a thing packed...but I am ready to go. Whenever anybody asks me about this fall I instantly get a glow about me. I can feel it, maybe it is a case of the jollies..:) I like that they have that word in the thesaurus. I am thrilled to the point of bursting. The only expression I can make is "bahh." Sure I have things to plan, stuff to pack, books to read, decisions to make. If I start to think over those things I get stressed...but just the thought of traveling, the thought that I will be in a new place with new people doing new things that I have never done before. Ahh...it puts me at rest, in a restless way. If that makes sense. I am restless to leave, not restless about leaving. That sounds confusing. I suppose I should save space on this blog for all the stories and moments from my trip, but I just can't contain it. I am overflowing with joy inside. Just ask me about it and I might explode.
