As I sit here watching House Hunters International, I can't help but think that in 4 very short months I'll be moving to Ireland for 2 years. I've watched these shows religiously for the last few years and always admired the courage it took to pick up and leave everything behind. Here I am, soon to do the very same thing.
I have been working literally day and night between jobs in an effort to save as much of a cushion as humanly possible. I am beyond exhausted but the prospect of working part time and travelling for 2 years has me motivated! I am overwhelmed with both nervousness and excitement and realize that 4 months is very little time for what I'm about to do. I have so much to accomplish in a short time and definitely have started to feel the pressure.
I am thoroughly looking forward to the opportunity to explore a new culture, see beautiful places and things, and meet some amazing people. Despite the fact that this is about as far outside my comfort zone as I can imagine, it is unusually satisfying at the same time. I'm nervous as hell but so excited to experience everything.
I imagine I'll be freakin' in a few months, but for now I'm enjoying the nervous excitement I'm feeling!
