It is cold. So, I am down to 24 days until my flight leaves. (Pause for a panic attack) Ok, I'm back. I will be working my fingers to the bone until I leave because anyone that knows me, knows that I need to save, save, save to ensure that I am not homeless on a beach in Australia. Can you feel sad for a homeless person who lives on a beach? Probably so. Either way, no days off for me until I leave Atlanta for Christmas and then I will return and work my final, few days at LOMA and then be on my way. I have a few things that I need to figure out, 1.) I have to set up an Aussie bank account, which can be done online 2.) I have to secure cell (or now, I guess I have to be pretentious and say mobile) service and 3.) I have to figure out what goes with me and what stays. Someone recently told me to pack my bag and lay out the money that I want to take with me and I should "reduce the clothing by half and double the money". It sounds like sound advice to me! I really hope that this journey is good for me. It is tough because when you have wanted to do something for so long, you can easily set yourself up for disappointment but I am trying to go in with an open mind and a malleable plan. Nothing set in stone, just go with the flow. That is tough for me because I like order and to have control, so this will be interesting. Also, if anyone is looking for inspiration or to follow a dream that you have always had, I recommend the book, "What Would You Do If You Had No Fear?" by Diane Conway. It is a series of short, real-life stories of how people made a commitment to following a dream and how they ended up better off because of it. Enjoy!
