As I was filling out the very last form (I hope!), it finally sank in that, OMG! I still have plenty of things to do! I realized that I was leaving the country (and my family, friends, job, etc.) a long time ago, but it is one thing to know that it’s going to happen and a very different one to be ready for such a big step. I know I am sure about this big decision and I’m really looking forward to the big day, but it’s also hard to say my goodbies, pack my whole life in a suitcase and start anew from square one in a completely different environment.
I know I have David, the kindest man I’ve ever met and love of my life, to help me; but let’s face it, it’s a huge challenge and certainly not an easy one and there will be things that I’ll have to do and process on my own. Anyways, to sum things up, the purpose of this is to try to organize the things that I still need to do before I leave. I’ll use this blog as a journal where I’ll write my checklists and who knows? Maybe I can even get some help from you. I’ve been to the States only once, so I don’t know much about it and I have some experience taking planes and visiting different countries, but not that much. It’d be super helpful to get tips from you as to I don’t know, practically anything!
OK, I’ll stop speaking my mind now because I’m starting to freak out, haha! Well, not really, but I sometimes find this whole thing a little bit overwhelming. But before I take off, let me introduce you to “us”, i.e. David and me.
This was taken on David’s first trip to Buenos Aires. We met on MySpace, by the way.
