Departure Date

Plans & Itineraries 2 Comments »

A rush of nervous excitement just raced through my body. Today I found someone to rent my place and my trip became finalized. I need to move out by January 7th and I’ve set a goal for departure of January 15th. That gives me exactly one month to finish getting ready and figure out where I’m going to go first.

After I added “Departure…” to my calendar, I began to delete all my recurring appointments that extended into next year. Then the first wave of homesickness hit me. I’ve never left for more than five months before. Not that I know for sure how long I’ll be gone, but it’s very likely I won’t see anyone I love for a year.

The feeling is a mix between a longing ache of butterflies and that shortness of breath that makes you sit up and smile when something great is about to happen. It’s pretty great.
