I'm GOING!


gave my two weeks notice today at the public school and at the tech school I work nights at. I should be in asia sometime early December!

I have a very busy weekend, deciding what I would do, and also a married couplr from college stayed at my house Firday night, and then after I got them breakfast and out of the house Saturday morning, I drove up to Arkansas for my college homecoming weekend. it was excellent fun. some of the first guys I was friends with and lived with were there and we all hung out and talked and man it was like old times serious. ha.

anyway, so I called the guy yesterday and we settled on a basically fair offer, and so now I'm on board for the project. I have found someone to manage my house while I"m gone. my roomie is pretty set on staying at least a year or two so I don't have too many worries, but still things will all be in place if he needs to move out and then go from there.

I'll mention all the other sort of things on my list on other posts. right now I'm just going to start boxing up everything and getting everything in to storage all next weekend. ahh yeah. project!

Thank by the way for all the comments and emails. also those I've been chatting with. I got some really great comments and emails full of ideas. (To the photographer who was up for meeting me while in OKC last week, I regret not emailing you back in time to say I was crazy busy with stuff. someday I hope we do get the chance to have a drink because I'm definitely into the whole gardening thing.)

My short term goals are pack up all personal effects in my house, and also I want to see the movies "across the universe" and "the darjeeling limited".
