Whew. Rather busy weekend here on the home front as I prepare to (a.) have someone else move into my house; and (b.) live out of a suitcase for 2 weeks (not a hotel, mind you, in a hotel you can unpack. I’ll be living out of a suitcase. I think our itinerary has us moving every day. So organization is crucial. ). Also, my boyfriend will be taking pictures every second of every day. (I tell him it is a bad habit. I think it is just that I don’t like to pose. Too many people looking at me–I always feel like I need to start vogueing.) So I can’t exactly wear the same thing every day.
For the record, I’m totally proud of my packing ability… so far, anyway. Of course, I don’t have my toiletries together yet, or my books, but my clothes and shoes make a surprisingly small stack in my suitcase. I almost feel like I could travel with only a duffel bag, but traveling for 2 weeks in Japan doesn’t seem like the best time for experimenting.
And on a completely different note–I get to see him on Thursday! Long distance relationships suck. Trust me.) I almost feel like I shouldn’t count down on separations this short…I feel like I should save the true counting down for the horribly long stretches: the next one will be from the beginning of the fall semester (mid August) to fall break (mid October, and more importantly, my birthday!) And I try not to count down until we’ve actually bought tickets–things come up, like conferences and tests, and then I get bummed. Even when it is my stuff that comes up. This one was a short break–really just enough time to get the laundry done, figure out where I stashed the stuff I didn’t get properly organized before he arrived, and get myself packed for Japan.
But yay! Going to see him soon!
