The countdown has begun. I've got a job lined up in Georgia, I've got an empty closet in Georgia waiting to be filled with my clothes, I've got a bed in Georgia waiting to be rumpled by my sleepy body, and I've got my room here in Belgium almost ready to be packed out.
There are still a couple of piles here and there, and a large mound of things in the middle of my room to be shipped to my college. This took me ages to manage, but I think I'm almost ready.
This week will be comprised of sorting things out and tying up loose ends, and then I'll leave. I won't say what day I'm leaving because there are weird people on the internet, but it's too soon to believe.
I'm excited, scared, happy, sad... the works! But the butterflies in my tummy are certainly cheerful butterflies for the most part. Cheerful butterflies tend to exterminate the worried butterflies if you let them. It can get pretty intense.
In other news, I'm trying to write again. Nothing major. Not a book or anything like that, but I'm trying to blog. Also, I'm keeping a notebook in my night stand and forcing myself to journal every night, even if it's just a poem or two. My love for writing nearly got knocked over by the fiction writing class I took, but I'm trying not to let it get to me. I know I learned things from the class, but it killed my fire for a while there. I'm going all Bear Grylls on the sparks, however, and trying to coax them back to life. We'll see how it goes.
Oh, and hey, you'll know this if you're my friend on Facebook, but I graduated! High school is over for good, and I'm mighty pleased. I'm heading to college with a partial scholarship and I really do feel as if I accomplished something. I tend to be a quitter, so finishing twelve years of school and getting a scholarship is a major gift from God and I am so blessed that he saw me through it.
Granted, school is mandatory, but you get the picture.
I'm excited! And I'm watching lots of Gilmore Girls and sleeping in late and staying up late and it's wonderful. Except for the (loads) of work I've had to do in my room to move out, I've been a summer bum and I'm embracing it till I start my job. I've also noticed that, in conversations with fellow humans, I have been over-using the word "excited" so I think it's time to hit the thesaurus in all of my spare time.
So, off I go to watch some shows and then Skype with one of my sweetest friends. I hope you all are having a great weekend.
