The day is getting closer! Exactly 2 weeks and I will be headed towards Shanghai, to participate in Orientation and then on to Dalian. I’m getting really excited, but that is to be expected. I’ve been trying to make lists of what I need to take, so I don’t forget anything, and also so I don’t take too much. I have always been the over-packer of the family, so from this adventure I am trying my hardest to take only what I need. My sister laughs that I have cut my shoe choices down to 4 pairs, mostly because she only owns 4 pairs of shoes, and I am leaving a box of shoes in the closet.
I’m beginning to see everyone before I leave as well. Tomorrow I will head down to Alamogordo to say bye to those friends, and then its back up to ABQ to make sure everything is ready. My sister will start her fall classes before I leave, so that will be nice to see what she has this semester before I leave. I’m also working on eating my favorite foods, and taking pictures of my places.
Lots of Love! Ash
