The good news? I'm back from the dead! I daydreamed and planned and pinched pennies and thought of a way to become a nomad. The time is finally here. In less than a week I will leave for my adventure. I'll soon be posting pictures where you can see the JOY in my face! I haven't been this happy in a really long time. Sure I had plenty of doubts (Did I budget enough? What about this recession? Am I crazy? blah blah blah). But the idea of not going was more terrifying than any of these other doubts.
The plan is to travel around the U.S. visiting friends and family. I hope to get a lot of writing done along the way. I can't wait to explore new cities! First stop, Seattle! My Seattle friend suggested I write all about my pre-trip thoughts, but I don't have much to say. It all feels very surreal. It's very, very strange. I don't know how to describe it.
