I leave in five days.
I don’t have time to even process what’s happening.
I know if I had had more than two weeks notice about this job then I would have probably talked myself out of it. However, Tina Fey once said to me, and by “said to me” I mean the FSM himself put this article in my life so basically she said it to me, “Say yes and figure it out after” and it’s kind of my new motto. I am just going to go and it’s going to be wonderful. Things will keep unfolding and everything will be ok. I’m kind of an adult now so if anything happens, I’ll figure it out like I always have. I said on new years that this was going to be my year, and it really has been. Sure, some really, really awful things happened in the last few months, but if they hadn’t happened I wouldn’t have had the courage to travel or sign up for a class at Second City, two things that have changed my life drastically for the better.
My family sent me their address today so I was able to see the neighborhood and the house is adorable. My best friend is from a similar area and says its a great location so I’m now even more excited to go!
I finally bought my plane ticket, got my visa, and have started to pack up my place this week. It’s actually happening and I don’t even know what to say except that I know this will be a fantastic experience.
