In just under nine hours i will be on an airplane, headed for Washington D.C. I know - still not quite exotic enough - but in another 34 hours from that time, I will be in Amman, Jordan. That's right, and this blog will no longer be a lie. Am I scared? Yes, definitely. My head is pounding. I'm trying to follow some advice I received and not get too much sleep tonight so I can fall asleep more easily on the airplane... really, I don't expect to have much of a problem sleeping - it actually comes quite easily, thanks to those good old genes. So, anyway, I mostly just want to wind down a little and live American for awhile longer. Pretty sure these next 3 1/2 months are gonna be a blast! So, "Secret of Nimh," here I come! And feel free to call me anytime in the next 6 hours or so, because I will answer! Well, Good Night/Morning/whatever you want to call it!

Back at the dorms...
So I lied a little bit in the url (or rather, I mistake). I'm not really in Jordan yet - just regular old Provo, Utah - or Brufu as I sometimes like to call it. It's weird seeing everyone get ready to leave. Here at the dorms, we're headed all sorts of places. Savannah's flying out to Rochester tonight so she can spend time with her awesome siblings then be in the Palmyra pagent. (lucky!) Then there's all the missionaries heading out... This weekend Kelsey will drive back to L.A. with her Momma and I'll head up to Farmington, Utah, to spend a couple days with the Jim and Michelle fam before heading off on my wonderful journey! Can I say excited!?!
