I never realized how much I hate packing – and how much effort it actually takes. I had been putting it off consistently, thinking “oh it will only take me a little while to get it done”. But my god, things accumulate … and not only trying to fit everything, but also trying to organize everything is a hassle! But I am FINALLY done.
In about 17 and a half hours, we have our flight for Norway and I am one of those people that can’t fall asleep before anything big … so it is going to be a very long night for me. I am so exhausted (but the kinda exhausted where you just can’t fall asleep).
The only thing that is bugging me about tomorrow (well, actually later today) is that I’m kinda annoyed that I will miss the primaries results tomorrow and won’t know the details until many hours later. Even though it is a given at this point (barring some insane and surprising circumstances) that Obama will win Oregon and Clinton will win Kentucky, it is still neat to follow the results the whole night and tomorrow will be the first one I will miss all election year long so far (no matter what I was doing or even if I had an important exam the following day, I still made time to follow election night coverage). There are a lot of times “unexpected happenings” that make things more exciting, but even in general I love following election nights coverage.
All this election talk reminds me… did you hear about Obama’s rally last night that drew over 75,000 people to it? How amazing is that?
Moving on, I’m going to try and blog as often as I can while I am in Norway, so I can look back later and recall everything. I’m definitely really excited and want to make sure I can remember later things I see that I would most likely forget otherwise.
To end with, it’s the week of birthdays in my family … and I want to give a special early birthday shout out to Hooria and Imran (Imran, sorry I am missing your birthday AGAIN). Love you both 🙂
