Thoughts before I left for Panama…

How can I pack my whole life for three months into one suitcase? And keep it under 50lbs no less? I’m not a light packer. This won’t be easy. And I’ve heard that they don’t weight the carry on too often…maybe I can overload that to its breaking point. ..just have to make it look like I’m only carrying 23lbs. Easy Peasy!

And of course I would leave packing for only hours before I leave…I work better under pressure! Everyone knows that. But I’ve made a decision (Rogers made it for me, actually, by charging such crazy rates for roaming and international usage) that my ‘Crackberry’ will stay home. The detox period will be long and painful, but I’m sure I’ll survive.

I have a really good feeling about this trip. Even now, hours before my flight (I hate flying btw), I’m not nervous or scared, maybe a little apprehensive about the unknown, but I feel ready. I had an opportunity in university to go abroad for an entire academic year. But for more than one reason…I bailed. Centennial College’s Global Experience Office is now giving me that second chance everyone always hopes for. Because it isn’t the things that you do in your life that you regret most…it’s the things that you wished you did but didn’t. This time, I’m doing it and I’m doing it right. Let’s just hope that I don’t get ‘plane sick’ as often as I get ‘car sick’!
