Well today is Monday. Which means that in three days I will be on a Megabus on my way to Chicago, then London on Saturday and Nairobi on Sunday. As I sit here writing, I still can't believe that it is happening. I don't think that it is ever going to hit me until I am on the United 767 airplane en route to London. So I can't even sit here and tell you guys what I'm feeling or thinking because I am not thinking or feeling anything really. I mean I am super excited but it still doesn't seem real. Being this close to departure you would think there would be all sorts of thoughts and feelings.

I guess the one thing that I do know is that I am going to miss my family and friends a whole lot. I mean this is by far the longest I will go without seeing my closest friends and family. The family part is a little different since going off to college obviously makes you see them less. But my friends, yikes. Good thing there is that awesome thing called Facebook and email these days, oh and Skype! Hopefully I will be able to stay somewhat in touch with everyone while I'm over there.

Today I finished up (well mostly anyways) packing my suitcase and backpack. I just have a few last minute things to throw in there. My only worry now is that my suitcase will be over the weight limit. I really don't want to pay some absurd fee for having too heavy a bag. I am quite proud though that I can fit 2 months of my life into 1 suitcase and 1 backpack. Sort of makes me wonder why I have so much stuff laying around in the first place. Alright well time to go be productive again. Sorry its been so long since I updated but I can assure you that it won't be like that now that the summer is upon me.

Wish me luck! Kwaherini!
