T Minus 6 Days

T minus 6 days.  I will depart LAX on Sunday, March 20th with with a one-way ticket to Buenos Aires. I am taking the leap, people.  Off to live life in Argentina as an expat.  I am so nervous/excited/incredibly unorganized I don't quite know what to do with myself. I feel like 6 days is an eternity and not nearly enough time all at once.  Below are my stats for the day: 

  • Chatting on Google talk about the trip:  5 hours (damn you Google talk)
  • Working:  4 hours
  • Packing:  7 minutes (if you count the times I tossed some stuff into the open suitcase on the floor after becoming frustrated with tripping over said stuff)
  • Eating:  2 hours
  • Reading online articles about Buenos Aires:  2 hours  
  • Looking around my mess of a room in dismay while trying to find a starting point, and then promptly giving up: 1 Hour (cycle was repeated many times)
  • Staring off into space or at the wall and daydreaming:  2 hours

Of course there was significant overlap between the above mentioned activities, and yet I don't feel like it necessarily paints the picture of a productive day.  Hmmm.  I should probably improve on that packing time tomorrow. Yes....tomorrow. 

Until then!
