First, I’ve changed the blog’s domain (isn’t that what it’s called? I just type. Smh). I wanted to change it to exquisite expat. Expat is short for expatriate. I am quite exquisite (owww if I do say so myself), so I saw no one was using the hashtag #exquisiteexpat and claimed it as my own. I hope the domain change hasn’t affected anyone who was following.
Now for what’s most important….. I GOT MY TICKET!!!!!!!!!
My best bud John and friends know in their heart that I did a little diddy bop when I saw that email at 8am. I had been so anxious and nervous; I thought I might have slipped through the cracks. But here I am, ticketed and somewhat packed. I was going to take an extra bag and just pay the fee, but I met a fellow coworker coming over that’s only bringing a 35lb backpack and a carry on……She is my hero! Yeah, so my goal now is to only use the allotted luggage. 33 years of existence in 2 suitcases and a carryon. Wow. I was feeling motivated and did some packing. I felt really good about myself…
…and then I turned around to see this. This has to come too! I’ll get it together. I have no choice in the matter
Five day notice before you leave the country may seem tight, but I’m thankful for these days. Some will only get 3 days to 24hrs. I’ve had the chance to say goodbye and prepare myself even more (you can’t really get prepared, I’m learning). You can’t begin to imagine the excitement I feel. I know I won’t get to see or call everyone, and I hope they charge it to my head and not my heart. The next time I post it will be from another country! I can’t wait to show you all the pictures I will indeed take. Thanks for following me on my journey.
