About Tomorrow

So... tomorrow... I can't believe I finally leave tomorrow. I have been waiting since October for this day and time has both flown by and dragged on. But now the day has finally come! 

Tomorrow afternoon I will fly out to Colorado where I will spend a few days in Boulder visiting my cousin and then i'll drive up to Fort Collins where I will be working on my TEFL certification. After a couple weeks of hanging out in the Rockies, me and the rest of the teachers moving to Southeast Asia will fly out to Cambodia and finally to Laos. Needless to say I am way excited! People keep asking me if i'm nervous or sad, but if i'm being honest I don't feel nervous or sad. I am just happy, happy to finally get this adventure started. 

So let's hope i'm ready for this. I have everything packed (except for that inevitable one important thing I will forget but won't remember until i'm boarding the plane), eaten all my favorite American foods, finished my TEFL homework assignments, and spent countless hours with the family and friends I am going to miss so much over the next year. So ready or not, Laos here I come.

all packed! Or so I think..

Pure Michigan

I just arrived home from Michigan yesterday and as much as I love visiting my family this southern girl is glad to be home. It was way to cold up North for me, I definitely prefer the heat. But despite having to wear the same sweatshirt and one pair of jeans I brought with me almost everyday, I had a great time.

I went to Lake Michigan several times & was a little obsessed with taking pictures. I love the lake and though I definitely did not go swimming (again way to cold) I could have sat on that dock all day and never been bored.

Also made a visit to my Aunt's house where I shot a gun for the first time. Everyone was shocked that I had never shot a gun before let alone even touched one. It's not that I really have anything against it, it just makes me super nervous. Thankfully I managed to not harm any people or animals.

And of course I visited lots of family!
