I leave in under 24 hours. I am finally packed...talk about a pain in the butt. I had no idea what to bring and what to leave behind. I lucked out because my stuffed Stitch fits into my large suitcase. I had no idea what I would do if I had to leave him behind. I am taking two large suitcases and shipping one box to start with. When I come home for Christmas I will bring both suitcases back with me and pick up the rest of the things I will need.

Things I am going to miss:
· All of my Harry Potter Books, they were just too big and heavy to pack
· My stuffed Elephant Ellie, I have had him since I was three but he will join me in Japan after Christmas
· My family...they may drive me crazy but I love them
· My friends and the RA staff
· American Food...love hamburgers and steak.
· Gilmore Girls in English; they have it in Japanese but I don’t speak that well yet.

Things I am looking forward to:
· Tokyo Disney, I want to see how it compares to the US version
· The language...I am a nerd I can’t wait to improve my Japanese
· Meeting my Co-workers...they all sound interesting.
· Experiencing a new Culture...see pervious nerd statement
· Sightseeing...temples and shrines...oh my...

I am sure I will think of more things once I get on the plane. It is a 14-hour flight I know I will have time to think and sleep.

Well this is my last update until I get to Japan and hook up the computer. I will update you all once I get unpacked.
