T-Minus 40 Days

It's starting to set in that I'm going again!

sunny 55 °F

Well the anxiety of having so much to do is finally starting to subside and my brain can focus on why I've been so stressed out. I'm sitting in the comfort of my living room with Zach watching a movie and trying to remember the last little list of things I have to do yet.

1.) Get vaccinated (yellow fever, typhoid, hepatitis A and malaria pills for the entire voyage)
- which means I need to make another doctors appointment
2.) Request Sitika as a roomie (yay!)
3.) Call credit card companies and make them aware of my travels
4.) Triple check that SAS received my field program choices
5.) Go to Sam's to buy on-ship snacks
6.) Start making/checking off list of things I need to buy for my trip
7.) Take a second look at my budget now that I have all of my plans finalized
- check in with tour companies that I'm booking with to finalize details
8.) Buy sim card for my cell phone

That's all I can think of for right now. It's going to be weird being on the ship with a completely new community atmosphere, but I'm going to try to make it an entirely new experience. I don't like the idea of not having someone I know right when I get on the ship. It was kind of like a comfort blanket to already know Sarah and Terra, and get along with them so well. But everyone else can make tons of friends then hopefully so can I. I'm finishing Eat Prey Love and as cheesy as it sounds that's kind of my inspiration for doing this all over again.

I'm going to miss Zach so much, but we've done this once before and we have the rest of our lives to be together. I have to do this for myself or I'll regret passing this up for the rest of my life - and I'm not about to start having regrets now. I'll write more when I know for sure if I got the field programs that I wanted, and when I have an update on my visas (they should be here in 2-3 weeks!!!)
