Packing Again…

When I tell people that I have started packing for my trip they usually laugh a little and respond with some variation of ” Why are you packing so early?”. After spending a few hours this morning going through my closet and laying aside the things that I know I want to take but will not be wearing this summer, I am so glad that I am getting this head start. To all of the people who have asked me the above question, do you have any idea what it’s like to try and pack for a whole year away from home? I am learning that it’s some what stressful actually and I’m finding it quite difficult to pick and choose what to take. I know that I will be grateful  that I am not packing the last few days before I leave because I imagine I will want to spend that time with family and friends, not running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, trying to fit everything into my suitcase. I have also started a list of all the things I intend to pack so I can check them off one by one as I pack them. Keep in mind that this is only a partial list so it’s bound to grow a lot bigger. However, I am done packing for the day. My brain can only process so much of one thing before I become restless and need to start a new activity.

  1. I am sooo excited for you and absolutely jealous of the great experience you are going to have!
    Are you going to be keeping this updated while you are in France?
    If so, I will be reading it all the time (:


    1. Thanks Victoria! I am going to try my best to keep this up to date while I am gone… that’s the plan anyway. I actually really enjoy blogging, it’s pretty fun 🙂

  2. Everyone like to think that they won’t be packing at the last minute, but trust me… no matter how hard you try, you will be hahaha 😀 I love you and if you need help with anything I’ll be around… well until the 31st!

    1. Where are you going on the 31st? You just got back :p
      anyway, I am sure I will be packing last minute. It just feels right to be starting now because that’s what most of the girls have told me to do, although a lot of the guys have said they packed two days before, which I could never do.

  3. I see you won’t be walking naked anymore! hahahah You are doing I great job and I am proud of you, but if that list keep growing up you are going to need a Maripopins back inorder to have room for everything.
