Only 28 more days until I am in Aberdeen!
It has already been a crazy month of change. I put in my notice at my job, which feels weird. I haven’t been unemployed since I was 15. It felt strange turning in all of my equipment. On my last day of work it felt like a normal day, I had to force myself to say goodbye to everyone. I don’t think it has completely hit me that I will be leaving and not seeing these people for at least a year if not longer. At least I have a going away party to have fun and enjoy my time with those I care about before I leave.
I hit one bump in the road regarding a loan this past week. There was a mistake on my credit report which caused a denial on one of my student loans. I was in a panic trying to fix the issue this week, but I am so excited to say that it only took two days and an appeal! I recieved my loan again after showing the issue had been fixed. I couldn’t believe it was taken care of so fast. Thank goodness it was because I was extremely stressed out and I didn’t want to have my weekend ruined with worry. Let me tell you though, I hate dealing with credit card companies.
Everything else is coming together. I purchased my plane ticket for a great deal! I couldn’t believe how cheap it was considering. Unfortunately I will have to fly out of Seattle, but it’s only 4.5 hours away. Could be worse. I also purchased a new digital camera so I will be able to take beautiful photos to show you all.
For the next few weeks I just plan on hanging out with family and friends and figuring out how to pack for a year.
I hope all of you are well,
