I have this friend - let's call her Stephanie (because that is her name) - who would run herself through a series of panics every morning after the bar. Out of nowhere -"Where are my keys?", and a few minutes later "where is my wallet" (not like she could lose that brick! It is the largest wallet I have ever seen!) and then "where's my cell phone?". I believe all items were consistently an arms-length away - but these moments of panic were still (or at least sound) very entertaining.
I am currently going through something similar - only instead of post-bar panic, I am having pre-FC panic. What if I forget all of those packets I filled out? What if something happens to my reservation, and I have nowhere to stay? What if (God forbid) I forget some key component for my iPod??!??!! (this would be the biggest issue for me!!) What if I forget to pack underwear? (I lost my box of underwear for a couple of days after a previous move - and I know how tricky that can get!) I am certain this all stems from the fact that I honestly have no idea what my life is going to be like for the next 4 weeks. I am continually asked questions : what is your schedule going to be like? how many other people are going to be there? - and I have the same questions!! I have no idea what is going to be going on with me! I am excited - I know everything is going to be fine (they aren't going to do anything horrible to me) - - but it still causing me to be a bit of a nutter right now!
I am finishing up laundry and getting things packed today. My plan is to leave Saturday morning at 5am. I am hoping the weather cooperates, and I can get the bulk of my drive done on Saturday. I have to check in at DDFC by 5pm on Sunday, and then I get started early Monday morning.
I want everyone to keep in touch - keep me up to date on what is happening here at home - so please text, email, or comment often! Wish me luck!!
