Yesterday, I began feeling the weight of what I'm about to embark upon - it was like a giant train barreling down the tracks ready to crush me into an oblivion of all that is overwhelming.

Today, however, is another story. Yes, I have an exam, a final, 2 lab reports, 3 lab quizzes, 2 homework's and 1 recitation quiz for Physics left between now and Friday as well as odds and ends to tie up before I leave and that last minute shopping trip to pick up those things you can't believe you hadn't thought of yet... but now... it's being converted into pure excitement - it's like the conservation of Energy! (Obviously, I've been taking physics alllll summer long!)

Over the weekend, I spent quality time with a number of my friends from UC - including a surprise going away/early birthday party! Let me just say that I have the most INCREDIBLE group of friends - driving in from Columbus, West Virginia and even North Carolina to wish me well. Not only that - we had GARDEN BURGERS just for me! As well as sweet corn and a cake iced to look like a globe! (Oh, yea, and some swimming and a ride in a 1926 car!) This past weekend was absolutely perfect and one that will never be forgotten!

Trying to pack is... a nightmare. Attempting to cram my life - without over packing - into 2 duffels (70 lb limit each) and 2 carry on's is somewhat terrifying. I can't get myself to actually put things IN the duffels - but I've put anything that could leak in Ziploc bags and some clothes in these awesome
vacuum seal bags (by hand... no pump.. It's an incredible invention, and if you ever travel, you should get them - I got a set of 4 for $15 - well worth it!) I just hope I don't forget to pack my toothbrushes (yes... plural. 4 to be exact. I love clean teeth... and always have weird stories of them being destroyed... ask me about it if you want a good laugh).

Anyway... trying to get ready to leave. Lots left to do... I cannot believe it's almost here!
Enjoy the pictures!
