Feeling a good amount of internal conflict. Mostly it feels weird to be here in a bunch of impermanent situation while my mind tries to make them permanent. I’ve also got the sad mixed with happy, and I don’t think it’s hit me that I won’t be seeing my parents or my sister and her family for a while. I’m soothed knowing that with technology the world is pretty flat, and with texting and Skype, they’ll feel close.
Not feeling excited yet. I think the excitement will come when the tasks are done, the bags are checked, and we’re at the airport waiting to board. Then it’s all out of my hands, until we land.
