ok well here is my first posting and im not sure exactly how this is supposed to go. my understanding is that these are a hybrid of journals and diaries for all the world to see so we'll just go by that and hope for the best i suppose. I haven't left quite yet, that's still 3 days away and im not sure if the reality of the entire situation has really come home to roost yet. ive been saying "im moving to thailand" for so long, the words dont have much meaning to me. no matter how hard i try, i can't really picture myself getting off the airplane in bangkok. i can definitely see myself sitting on the beach and sweating my ass off, that seems to not present much of a problem but as far as the real life task of getting off the plane and going through customs......well its beyond me really.

i found leaving my previous life both shockingly easy and at the same time a little harder then i thought.......not sure if that makes sense but oh well. it was a shock that i had so little baggage, so few ties to IL and my normal life. nothing that couldn't be cut loose in a few days or weeks. but at the same time i find that its harder then i thought to say goodbye so some people, knowing that in all probability, i'll never see them again. man my head is swimming with the goodbyes of late but i suppose all that is necessary to move on and out into the world....well here i go, hope u all come back and check up on me now and again.
