Okay, I haven't started my trip YET, but I am so excited! I just started this travelogue to share all of my experienced this summer. I realized the other day when I was telling my boyfirend that I am leaving for the summer that I only have one month to take care of all the things I need to do beofre I go. Seeing as how I am a BIT of a procrastinator, I figured it was a good idea to make a to do list. It quickly evolved into two very long legal size pages. What am I going to do with my little orange apartment for the summer? When will I clean out my dirty explorer which has served as my second home for the past three years? I am sure there are clothes in there that I will want to take with me... And considering that I am a compulsive over-packer, HOW will I pack for two and a half months??? So many questions, so little time... What to do.... And just to make things interesting, it turns out that my mom will be having her second knee replacement surgery 5 days before I leave... I guess if I want mom's help I am going to HAVE to do things ahead of time!! Anyway, I anticipate that this will be THE summer of my life. I am going to Italy, Spain, London, and somewhere undecided with Kate the Great! After finals are out of the way, I am only going to have 19 days to do all of the stuff I need to do before I go.....it is time to see Jessie get a little crazy!! I am taking Italian lessons to get ready for Italy, but I am thinking that I may not finish the lessons because I have SO MUCH STUFF to do! Anyway, I am going to share my stories and pictures with you throughout my trip with this travelogue-- feel free to live vicariously through my experiences!
