How I'm feeling:
I learned how to knit yesterday. I hope by the time I'm done with my first project, I'll feel pretty comfortable with the basic process. It is getting easier, slowly. I have a new hobby to keep me busy, I guess it's good timing, right before leaving. I have to go get a pair of bamboo needles to take on the plane, since non-wood one's could be weapons. I'm sure I'll have no problem getting yarn in Malawi. (Probably even 100% real wool.) Wow, I'm such a big dork, yep.
I am finding my time quite full. This weekend I went out to Noir on Friday, and to Anne-Marie's Birthday last night, and I'm going to the Curve party tonight. Wowsa. I did get my drink on a little too much on Friday, but I of course wasn't driving, but I'm glad my friends can give me a little grief. A-M's party was very nice, mellow and warm. Plus the food was GREAT! I'm going to miss my friends terribly. I'm planning on having lunch with a few friends this week.
I want to finish packing, but at the same time I don't. It's something to occupy my mind. I think I'll get it nearly done today. Minus a few items that I'm wearing this week that I'll be taking with me. I've given up on trying to be perfect with my packing list, but settle with good and close enough. I've promised to type up my final packing list, so that will happen sooner or later too.
