Time flies, f'real

This past week has absolutely flown by.  It may have been the fastest week in the last 12 months.

Since my trip to La Crosse I have:

-- Received this slip of paper from UW in the mail.  So long loan #3!

-- Eaten for the first time at AJ Bombers in Madison, which surpassed my expectations.

-- Gone shopping with my mom and sister, buying three (much needed) pairs of shoes and various toiletries for the next year.

-- Gotten my hair cut really cutely by my cousin.  Third time's a charm!

-- Made $41 and got rid of / donated lots of stuff at my free garage "sale" on Friday.
(Yes, this is still on our driveway, a week later)

-- Helped my aunt "stage" for her move.

-- Gotten brunch with my old boss and friends.

-- Tried to bake cookies in Luke's car before a family dinner on Sunday.

-- Gotten all the siblings together under one roof for the final time in 2013

.... and probably some other things that I'm forgetting.  So I was mostly spending time with people, not packing.  The packing all happened today, and I've got some messy pictures to document the process.  If I get on top of things, I'll schedule some posts to go up while I'm in travel mode, otherwise it could be a few days until you hear from me on the blog.

Tomorrow I leave for Chicago in the morning, where we'll have an orientation at 3:30, followed by dinner and a night in a hotel.  They'll bus us to the airport on Thursday, then I'll take off for my 14-hour flight.  We arrive in Seoul around 5pm on Friday, but I'll have a few hours in the car after that to get to my little town.  You're so jealous of my next two days, I know.

I won't have internet in my apartment right away, but I'm expecting to be working at school on Monday (Sept. 2) where I'm also expecting internet.  Until then!
