8 Days Before I Fly Out to Colorado

And I’m nowhere near finished packing or moving my things outta Grandma’s house!

I must love the extra pressure and stress…seriously.

These last days have felt a bit strange for me – I’ve been a mixture of things: excitement, anticipation but also nervousness and uncertainty. Of course, the excitement has overpowered any fears I may have or have had. The choice of going to Colorado was entirely made on my own. I thought long and hard about it (but not too long for I’d miss an opportunity!) and making the choice has just felt right. I feel it in my gut. It just feels like it’s something I should do. Like… it’s part of the journey.

Whenever I’ve flown out to Europe, the last week before my scheduled flight always felt like a bit of a trance… and that’s how it’s felt so far this time. Part of me can’t believe it. I’ll be in a new State, new place, have a new job, be around new people, etc. I know I’m going to love it, yet at the same time, I wonder how it’s really going to be once I’m living out there. It shouldn’t be too different than from living abroad – only difference is I’m still in the same country, and I have an actual, paying “job”.

I’ve been making lists of things I still need to do, pack, buy, etc before I head West. For example, I had to order new extra contacts (being a nearsighted person as I am) and buy some hiking shoes (for the hikes we’ll be doing every week or so) and a bunch of other things!

And I still have to pack… I’ve had to drag my winter clothes out of the garage and sort through them, and am still currently undecided as to what to bring exactly. I don’t want to over-pack, but goodness! I definitely don’t want to under-pack, either!

I unfortunately won’t be able to bring my guitar with me. It will be different to go 4 months+ without playing it – hope my callouses survive! Maybe I’ll be lucky and find someone who happens to also be a guitarist.

I will, however, bring my art supplies – some paints, brushes, pencils and a couple of sketchpads. After looking at the Rockies I know I’ll find plenty of inspiration for my art ๐Ÿ™‚

So, I still have full days ahead of me! Finish packing. Move out. Spend time with family. Celebrate a birthday. Fly out to Colorado.

Butterflies stir in my stomach just thinking about it! ๐Ÿ˜€
