days < 50 -- packing

piece of advice for future outbounds #2:
start packing ahead of time.
like, waaaayyyyyyyyyy ahead of time.

since all my classes are over and i only have math review to do, i consider summer to have officially started. that said, i probably have more to do this summer than i ever did during the school months.

...makes me realize just how much i own
...makes me realize just how much i use hard.

things to celebrate in the past 10 days:
  • My host family sent me a postcard! i honestly think i have the best host family ever... really...
  • some of my friends and i went to the top of the US Bancorp Tower (it's 42 stories). very proud of myself.
  • working through German level 2. hopeful that it'll go quickly, because i'm trying to get as far as possible before i leave. (then again, there is the fact that german grammar is basically the most confusing thing in the world to me. so i need to figure out the difference between nominative, accusative, dative, and genitive forms before i move on.)
  • i have packed the bottom level of my suitcase. however, my shoes take up a lot more room than i originally thought they would. if you see a girl wearing three pairs of shoes (including rain boots) at the Portland airport in early august, that will be me.
  • logged into my travel agency website to find that my Swiss Rotary has sent in all my documents! hooray! sohappyaboutthisyouhavenoidea.
the end.
