Well this is my last full day at home....wow.
Adam is driving me up to New York City-Manhattan tomorrow. We're leaving at the bright and early time of 5 am. We'll probably be up before the roosters....
It will take us 6 hours (depending on the traffic...but being that early I don't think the traffic will be that bad, but I think we might hit rush hour traffic somewhere...hmmm, oh well) to get there so we'll get there around lunch 11/12 o'clock.
Yesterday I did most of my packing. I have this huge bag...when it's empty it looks like a body bag....not even quite full yet with tons of clothes. I remember my last time with YWAM I felt I didn't have enough clothes. I'll be home for Thanksgiving so I can adjust if I have WAY TOO MUCH.;)
In my heart I feel ready to go. It feels a little anti-climatic. My parentst left early this morning for a weekend at a friends beach house...and I said bye to Krista Tuesday of this week. So tomorrow I'll only have Adam to say bye too.
I wonder if this will be my "final leap" from the nest...of if I'll circle back around and stay awhile again. In some ways I hope it is my final leap. I think it hurts my pride some that I'm 25 and still live(d) at home. I live at home for long chunks of time than I live somewhere else than I come home again etc...:)
I wonder if this opportunity will be a giant fork in the road or just a long detour.
I'm excited about going to David Wilkerson's church on Sunday-Times Square Church! My home church is casual...so I've wondered if they're casual...but I wouldn't think so...so I've packed some dressy clothes. I'm sure you wanted to know that.
I kinda want to leave today....I'm ready to go!!! Oh well...it's a lil' hard cause I'm a night person and can easily stay up until 2am...but I should go to bed earlier and than get up at 5am! I'll sleep in the car. Adam said, "if you can with my music going."
I believe when I first get there I'll be sharing a room, a room with a bunkbed with Rachel a photographer (she's also on staff). It sounds like the room is small. And that it's a temporary set-up. I sure hope it has windows. And I hope to find a park with trees and grass. I could always grow grass in my room...that'd be weird, never mind. I'm a country girl ya know.
I should write again soon after getting up there. Pray for me!:)
