"...every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end..."

It is only fitting that the journey in Atlanta ends as it began. My first three days in Atlanta, I slept on the floor while waiting for my family to bring my stuff and alas, they came last night to take my bed back with them and here I lie on the floor. What you see is what you get. All that is left of my life here in Atlanta is a pile full of covers and a laptop. I have to be honest, as the apartment emptied out this morning, I questioned my choice for a split second but after taking a nap on my cold, hard floor, I felt better. Well, I felt better mentally at least! There are so many "what ifs" and "maybes" for me right now but that is ok, I have made the choice and for better or for worse, I am going. I hit a snag on my path to Australia yesterday as I tried to wire my money from my US account to my Aussie account and I found out that Credit Unions can't wire money to foreign countries. So, I am going to take traveler's cheques and then deposit them directly into my account upon arrival because if I take a Cashier's check, it will take up to a week for them to verify the funds. Then, I really will be hungry and angry on the other side of the world. For my final adventure in Atlanta; my Mom, Dad, brother Andrew, his friend Jessie, and I went to visit the Olympic Park and the kids tried ice skating, which was more like slush skating since the ice was melting but for kids from Florida, any ice skating is worth mentioning! I let them ride MARTA at night, which was a mistake. If I get shanked, fine but nobody can shank my Mama. That just isn't right. So, the countdown is on. I leave for Aussieland in 9 days (I just felt awkward). It will truly be something remarkable because I never thought that I would actually have the courage to do this. I appreciate everyone's encouragement and support, it means a lot to me. Thank you all!

Aww! I'm getting anxious, and I'm not even going! I'm so excited for you!!

The feeling of sadness mixed with anticipation that you feel just before you shut that apartment door for the final time will pass more quickly than you expect--as quickly as the twinkling of an eye!

I know - and as I lie here on my floor, the small creature comforts of my once safe apartment are now gone and I am ready to be too. It is an odd mix of emotions of insecurity and destiny all mixed into one. We will see how it goes. Either way, it is my journey.

Look at my Mama. She is technologically savvy. I love you too and since my brothers will never read this, can you go ahead and confirm that I am your favorite. Go ahead...I'll wait. Love you.
