Hello Blog World!

My friends (Steph & Hannah) would be so proud of me, I've started a blog! Right now I'm in the process of packing and moving to Australia to study for 2 years. My departure date is TBA but it's definitely within the next 3 weeks. To be honest I have nothing packed, just a mental list I keep rewriting over and over in my head because I keep forgetting. Hanging out with family and friends has been my priority which has helped me avoid packing. The thought that I have to pack for summer, fall, & winter clothes in 3 luggages each weighting 50 pounds is torture, mainly because I don't know when I'll be coming back to the states so I have to bring EVERYTHING. If you know anything about me, this is a HUGE dilema. Not only do I have to pack my clothes, shoes, accessories, and millions of underwear, but school books, ice skates, and toiletries (and you know that weights a lot!). I was told that things cost more in Australia than they do in America (especially beauty products), and as an unemployed-broke college student there's not way I'm buying a new wardrobe there.

To Do List:
[x] Go to the beach
[x] Deep clean my room
[x] Buy an American flag
[x] Hang out with Biola friends :)
[x] Eat In-n-Out
[  ] Buy a CA state necklace (here)
[  ] Mom's gift (stay tuned, it's going to be pretty sweet!)
[x] Jury duty next week (ugh)
[x] Traffic school (double ugh)
[  ] Pack (triple ugh!)

Any packing suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)
