t-minus six weeks and counting

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

yesterday jess and i went to get passport-sized pictures taken for some of the foreign visas we’ll need on our trip. standing in costco waiting for the photos to develop, we realized it was a tuesday! we leave on a tuesday! so we busted out the calendar and realized that we were at 6 weeks to takeoff. can you believe it??

we’re starting to get all the loose ends tied now, planning places to stay, picking out our travel insurance policies, taking care of all our shots and vaccines, getting rid of the excess stuff (still! i know, why oh why do i have so much crap?) and planning LOTS of good-bye parties. haha… i can’t believe that in six weeks at this time i will be on a plane heading to hong kong.

(well, actually i CAN believe it. i’ve been planning to do something like this forever… i’m just so excited to be finally turning my daydreams into reality!)

i came across this idea on the lifehack website this morning: “If you only had six months to live, would you do what you are doing now? You can only answer ‘yes’ to this question if what you are doing matters to you. Doing what matters to you is a sure way to excellence since you will do it with all your heart. But you need the courage to be different and follow your heart. Do you have it? I hope your answer is yes. Life is too precious to be lived in mediocrity.”
