Oh man... the anticipation is killing me. What am I supposed to do for another whole month without excitement and adventure and...and...Israel? I been pseudo-packing for a last a few weeks now. You know, the making of lists and the mentally preparing and such. Yeah...I'm ready to pack pack now. But I certainly can't have my clothes and such sitting in a couple suit cases for a whole month. That'd definitely be useless. Anyways...I wish the 29th was here. Was now. It's worse now than when I was getting ready for freshman year. I wasn't even that excited for college...I don't really get "excited" a head of time for things...and this is probably why: I'm dying! Ok...so I'll stop being so melodramatic.
One more month will fly by....but only if I try not to pay any attention to time. ;) I promise I won't do another blog until I'm in Israel. (maybe)....
Friday, July 6
Yes that's right folks. The blogginning if this era is now. This is my very first post on a blog ever...and it will not be the last. I guess I like to start with a quote and a poem to start off my journey to Israel....
"It's a dangerous thing, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you'll be swept off to."
- The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with weary feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
- Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun.
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead,
We'll wander back to home and bed.
