The times they are a changin'

Ho ho know the rest!
Well, Christmas has come and gone. Hope it was a great one for you and yours! I spent my Christmas........ in the Intensive Care Unit.
(Dramatic Pause)
Don't worry, I was working. Phew, were you worried? I'm not actually sure when my family and I celebrated Christmas on Dec. 25th last. Probably sometime in college. Ah, Christmas break. Those were the days!
Anyway, I had a delightful time celebrating Christmas with my fam.
Now that Christmas is over, it is full steam ahead in my plans for moving to Sierra Leone!
First things first. I moved back in with my parents. My roommates finally had enough of me and kicked me out! Or maybe our lease ran out at the end of December. It was one of those. Maybe a combination. :)
So I have taken everything I own......and put it in my mom's living room. Merry Christmas Mom!!
I will soon start the scintillating process of unpacking everything so that I can repack it after I've decided what few precious items t I want to try and cram into my 2 bag, 50lb limit of luggage! I'm envisioning hauling the ridiculously heavy textbooks I want to bring in my carry-on.
Ha ha United Airlines! Look who's fooled you now! (Side note: will most likely be looking for a chiropractor in Sierra Leone upon my arrival.)
So. The great thing about moving across the world, is that even though Christmas is over, I still keep getting sweet looking packages like these at my door!

Low and behold it's my mosquito net!! Looks very luxurious!

I've also received my own personalized security system. This means that I just bought some pepper spray and little alarms off the Internet. I'm not sure how much protection it will provide....but it might make me sleep a little better at night. That, along with the ferocious dog I'm hoping to get when I arrive! Don't mess with me man!

And finally.....the one package I was most hoping would not get lost in the VISA!!! That's right folks, it's official. I'm not going to have to sweet talk or sneak into the country. Phew!

So there you go. The countdown has begun!

Now it's off to work to finish kicking Sallie Mae to the curb before I leave!
