This video was recently posted by a staff member at my college. I am a sucker for Ted Talks so I watched it...and I was moved to tears. To tears. Why exactly? I'm not entirely sure. I figured it's because, in a way, connected to what I'll be experiencing soon in terms of saying goodbye to people who have made an impact in my life, unconscious or conscious, and moving forward. I urge you to watch the video, but my feelings won't be hurt if you aren't inspired by it.
After an early appointment this morning, I went to the dollar store to buy flip flops. That's right, folks. I live in Florida and don't own a pair of flip flops. Thus, I invested in two cheap pairs so I can be in the dorm bathroom/showers without having to touch the nasty floors with bare feet. I think it was a wise purchase.
I am continuing the pack and make an inventory of everything I'm taking. It's bound to be headache figuring out what I can ship, what I should take on my person, and what I should buy there. I have created sub-lists and dozens of mental notes. I've tried to write down what I can. I hope I remember it all! Also, I will film a dorm items video since you guys requested it. That should be up in the next couple of days!
As much as I wish I were reading more this summer, at this point I can't be bothered. I plan to finish The Ghost Map (only 60 more pages) and then call it quits. It's a shame I probably won't have much time to do pleasure reading this fall. Fortunately, there are 16 books I'm supposed to read for class; that should help keep me on track to read 50 for the year.
Alright, I'm off to do even more organizing and packing.
