Little things keep making me realise that I am leaving really, really soon! For example, getting my first payroll deposit 😀
… which made it possible for me to go to the pharmacy and pick up some essentials. Funny how this time, it was buying immodium that made me go ‘oh! I’m actually going to a developing country where I’m going to get the runs!’
TMI? Get used to it 🙂
I’ve also started a ‘packing table’ and am going through the boxes and boxes of crap that have exploded on various floors of my mum’s house, to figure out what gets to come along. This is how my packing table looks so far :
I’m kind of scared cause so far, this isn’t even close to being everything I need/want to bring. Some of you may be thinking ‘Alex, you don’t need to bring Cinnamon Toast Crunch’. Well, some of you obviously don’t know me very well. Also, it came in the mail today as I was packing, and I think that that’s a sign. Shush.
ALSO, as I may have forgotten to point out, or have actually forgotten altogether on some occasions, I’m actually going to Africa to work (which is why I’ve spent most of the summer lying in bed – as soon as I realised/remembered/accepted that this wasn’t a holiday, I decided to do as much bug-free lounging around as I could fit into my schedule of doing nothing). Well, today I found this information about my place of work. Exciting!!!
