I have booked my flight to Thailand! It cost multiple “pretty-pennies,” but it will be well worth it in the end. I will be driving back to Texas to keep my things at my parents’ house around the second week of September, and departing for Phuket, Thailand on September 15th! I am very excited for this new chapter in my life, but also experiencing a lot of anxiety. I will definitely be out of my comfort zone, but I think at this time in my life it will be good to push boundaries. To counter my uneasy feelings, I have been making a lot of lists. The list I have been working on the last couple days is what I will be bringing with me. I know I need to keep my belongings to a minimum because space is an issue, but I also know there are some very important items I need to bring. Nonetheless, I’ve successfully compiled a list that is over two typed pages long…. Pretty sure my next project with this list is to make some cuts, or at least be sure it’s all essential!
