4 days left!

I’m not even sure how that happened. These last few weeks have flown by. I only have four full days left before I leave for Costa Rica-crazy! And I have been going nonstop all week. My truck sold within 24 hrs of posting it on Craigslist. I know it’s silly but it made me sad to leave it. My truck was the first big purchase I ever made and I paid for it all myself, and we went all over the country together: from KC to New Orleans, to Minnesota, way out in the middle of nowhere western Kansas.
I also cleaned out bag after bag of stuff from my room and sent it off to Goodwill. I feel so much better not having so much clutter around, but at the same time it feels a little disorienting. I have some things packed away but the majority of everything I own can be packed up and carried anywhere in the world. I bought a backpack and packing cubes this week and I’m trying to get everything organized. I know this probably makes me weird, but I actually love packing. It’s like a big 3-D puzzle to me.
Let’s see, I got my flight booked (multi-destination from KC to San Jose to Belize City, then back to KC for the holidays) and my first month in an apartment in San Jose. I got travel insurance, called my credit card companies to let them know I’d be out of the country, got enrolled in the Art Institute, did some shopping, cleaned, cleaned, and cleaned some more. Also got to spend time with some family and friends before I go. Can’t wait to go so I can finally (hopefully) have some time to relax!
