As I sit here, on top of my suitcase, trying to squash it into the realms of zipper-ability, I'm starting to think I may have over packed a little. But I can't leave that one shirt, and I'll need all those dresses, and those shoes will be helpful and...well... you get the idea. It's starting to hit me how soon I will be leaving for the East Coast. I am looking forward to every single aspect of this trip, even the 2:45 AM call time. Being this excited, I'll probably wake up around then anyway.
I did my best to get a lot of sleep last night knowing it might be my last time to rest for quite a while. I returned from a week-long leadership camp yesterday, and seeing as I'm about to leave again, I'm hoping to spend a lot of time with my family today. I like to think they'll miss me.
From what I have read of the other groups' blogs, I think the most important thing for me is to keep a very open mind for the coming college tours. No matter how much I like to think that I've got it all figured out, I'm sure the visits will be eye-opening and they may completely re-align my priorities. If anything, I'm looking forward to a better understanding of what's out there for me and what different colleges have to offer. I've been spending my free time reading about my class and the program and I'm having a hard time refraining from spewing random facts to everyone around me.
As the clock ticks down, I get more and more excited. However, seeing as the clock is also ticking down on the amount of sleep I'll get tonight, I think it's about time to go to bed.
