A brief word:
Packing is a b****.
Today's the big day. A little more than an hour from now I'll be departing for the airport. It's still hard to comprehend that I'm leaving not merely my home, but my country, for 4 months. Gah! But I'm still excited . . . and terrified . . . and excited . . . stupid mixed emotions!
Here's to writing for the last time until May from the good ol' USA. See ya.
(I'll still be posting -- from jolly old England. ^_^)
