Super close...

In less than 12 hours, I'll be in the air, on my way to Japan.

Everyone keeps asking if I'm excited but I think I'm just kind of overwhelmed by how big this all is and so though I'm sure there's TONS of hyperactive excitement buried in me somehwere, right now I'm just kind of numb and anxious to just be there and get everything started.

Plus, saying goodbye to everyone has been really hard so I think that I've sort of shut down emotionally so as not to become a crying mess (I'm such a girl, I know).

But this is exciting and I'm hoping that it'll be as much fun as everyone's said it's going to be.

Ok, enough of me being maudlin. I'm such a drama queen sometimes. I'll try to have some fun pictures of the plane/Tokyo to post on here next time I write.

2 days

I now officially have my yen! So yay for money! And almost as important as money, I have my books for the trip, too!

And my packing is very nearly done, though w/o Jana (my packing nazi), things have considerably slowed down and I seem to have a problem being logical enough to know that I don't need 2 of everything...not that that'll be surprising to most of you, I'm sure.

Tomorrow's my mandatory orientation in which I'll be receiving my visa, plane ticket, etc aaaaaaaand I'll finally get my passport back...yay!

Ok, as I'm still not in Japan, I don't have any exciting Japan news, so see ya

T minus 4 days...

So...

I'm leaving for Japan in 4 days...well, I guess it's actually 3 now, but anyways...I figured that I should initiate myself into the world of blogging as another way of keeping everyone updated with information and photos of what I'm up to in Japan. But don't worry...I'll still bombard you all with emails, too.

Ummm...ok, that's all for now. It's past 2am and I'm too tired to think let alone blog.
