In just about 2 days I will be embarking on my journey from Washington, DC to Austin, TX. The route we are taking is about 1700 miles and Google Maps says it should take about 28 hours. Part of me wants to take it slow and enjoy the trip, stopping whenever we feel like to explore. Another part of me wants to drink 3 Rockstars and just drive until we get there.
I know that last idea is not a good one. Thank you for your concern.
I am wrapping up the loose ends at my job before becoming a remote employee and also getting all of my goodbyes done. I’d like to say that goodbyes are hard. Really hard. I did not think I would cry at all when saying goodbye, especially considering I’ll be back in about three weeks. But alas, the tears flowed when i had to leave my best friend. If you know me at all, I’m not a cryer, this was a big deal.
I hope I’ve gotten the tears out of my system now. I just want to get to the fun parts. I’ve been ready to go over weeks just playing the waiting game. It’s time to start.
Luckily I have he Olympics to keep me calm until Friday. Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps hold special places in my heart. And I will watch them tear through water mostly naked any day. They can obviously keep my attention while I play the waiting game to move.
