I leave in exactly 2 weeks. To go here. To work in this building:
It has been an interesting process, the last few weeks of packing and saying goodbyes. I am trying to not become a hermit (which is very easy for me to do, actually, and surprises my friends quite a bit when I do it, since I am naturally a social human being). I am trying to spend time with my family.
I’ve seen some pretty good movies in the last week…Stranger Than Fiction (loved it), Flushed Away (cute), Casino Royale (liked it muchly), and The Departed (liked it, but was tired at the end).
A highly recommended book to read: 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus, by Charles C. Mann. Absolutely fascinating, and definitely worth your time.
It’s all very crazy, isn’t it? This moving thing.
I don’t know if I already told you this or not, but it looks like I’m going to arrive later. You’ll see Eric when you get there, but I’ll be delayed a month or two behind you.
Sho-leh! What airline are you flying? i am actually flying through Chicago, so we might even be on the same flight. That would be craziness. Or kismet. i am flying Turkish Air – through Istanbul, which excites me. If we’re flying together, i promise not to bother you too much on the plane ;).
i’ve been packing today. Got all my clothes packed yesterday – just under the wieght limit. Now i am struggling with other things like shoes and books and DVDs and other comforts. They all weigh a lot. But many people known to me are coming in the next few months. Maybe they will bring me things…Ummm, how exciting is it if Shannon and jonjon stop by?!?!
You get to work in the ITC? i am pequeno jealous. Que bonita edeficio. i don’t really know where i’ll be. i’m working for the secretariat, but i do not know where they are housed.
Mojan: You hadn’t told me, but I heard it through the grapevine. hahaha. Actually I was at your employer’s home and they told me the other night.
Abi: Aww sad! I’m not flying Turkish Air…but we may arrive at the same time in Tel Aviv. As for packing…I’ve only got one suitcase packed, but I’ve got some friends bringing stuff too…utilize them!!
And good luck to you in your journey! 🙂
Yes, best of luck, Sho (and Abi!). Don’t miss Chicago too much, you’ll have near daily access to THE Threshold. So yeah. Enjoy that 🙂
Exciting AHHHHH! You will be missed : (. I wish you the best of luck and you better update me on a regular basis :)!
flying off to work at the International Teaching Centre… what an honour!!! You must be in the clouds right now. I am so happy for you and am looking forward to reading about the transformation you will undergo…
