A Fond Farewell

Posted on August 22nd, 2006

It is (technically) Tuesday, which means that I fly out to New York tomorrow.

I just re-read that sentence and that is freaking scary.

I’m feeling a strange combination of antsy, nervous, excited, scared, confused, restless, and pretty much every other emotion under the sun. It probably didn’t help that I saw some pictures of a friend’s recent trip to NYC on her Facebook.

And it also doesn’t help to know that there is so much to do before I can leave; my room is a mess, I am generally unpacked, I have a lot of research to do… the list goes on and on. I think I’m starting to panic. Flip, I hope that I can sleep (especially in around 22 hours’ time).

But the fact that I am leaving is finally starting to set in. I’ve suspended my cell phone. My belongings have been scattered across five different locations. I said my last goodbyes to people in Waterloo and Toronto. (There are just a couple of people left.) And, in my head, I know that it is no longer a matter of months or weeks away; it is down to days… two days.

With that in mind, this will likely be my last post from Canada for a while. Re-reading that is also pretty scary. Goodbye, Canada!

And that’s it. It’s time to set the final plans in motion. No more fear, no more anxiety. Make room for more excitement and more happiness; this is going to be one of the most memorable experiences of my life!

I’m ready.
