Hitting the Road

That's it folks, time is up. I'm about to hit the road for THE BAR. Because I'm not positive about the wireless situation where I'm staying this may be the last you hear of me for the week. I'm a raging bundle of nerves, not yet getting that sense of zen everyone keeps telling me will hit me. Then again, I did sleep through the night last night for the first time in weeks (of course, half a bottle of wine helps with that, now doesn't it?)

My packing list:
  • 4 t-shirts, including the lucky one I made (will reveal its contents at a later point in time to ensure the luckiness remains intact)
  • 2 sweatpants and a pair of jeans
  • sweatshirt and socks (in case the Convention Center is air conditioned)
  • swim suit (there's a hot tub at the hotel... we'll see what the crowds look like before I use it. Otherwise-)
  • bubble bath
  • ziplock bag with: admission ticket, erasers, lucky pencils, pens, highlighters, earplugs, watch
  • laptop, power cord, ethernet cable
  • cell phone, cell phone charger
  • 1 pg (or 2 pg) outlines
  • Performance Test skills and tips
  • In class notebook
  • Lucky Joe - the teddy bear Jon got me for our anniversary about 3 years ago. When you squeeze his hand he says "I love you, I love you"
  • mp3 player
  • PMBR cds for the drive up
  • hand weights
  • Shrek dvds
  • water bottles
  • gatorade
  • cooler of lunches and oatmeal fruit cookies
- And my last minute shout outs:
- Thank you to Mom, Dad, and Jon. I know I've been a PITA this summer. Thanks for not rubbing it in too much. I will be back to being my regular PITA self after this week.
- My Nesties. Seriously, the "good luck emails" I received after BN's email made me cry. Seriously.
- Special shout outs to WeeMo, Diane, Jess, and Sara. I love having your support.
- Special shout out to Liz. Your weekly emails checking in on me were so appreciated!


  1. Buena suerte! You're gonna kill it! As Rob Schneider would say, "You can do it!"
