Time to get this Blog Started!

Well, here is my first post before I start on my journey to Norway. It is kinda scary to think that in a little over a week, I will be leaving the US until December. I am most nervous about my flight because I have never flown before and once I get on that plane, I will not be getting off until I land in Sweden over 8 hours later. I am hoping that once I get on the plane, I will be able to relax more and just fall asleep.

From Sweden I go to Denmark and then from Denmark I finally take my flight to Norway. I cannot wait to see Kine and Fay waiting for me at the airport. Once I get there, I will know that I have made it through what I think is the toughest part of my whole trip. I am not really worried about school or speaking Norwegian, it is just these connecting flights that I have to endure before I can relax. (I am actually really looking forward to working on my Norwegian!)

I feel like I am pretty much packed at this point. I have two suitcases that are fairly full and I hope they meet the size and weight requirements. I am glad that I am taking two because it doesn't take long to fill one when you have shoes and a winter coat to take along.

I only have 3 more nights left at Milprint and I cannot wait until 7am on Wednesday morning when I can turn in my ID and leave. Working there has been okay but after 3 summers spent in that factory, I have had more than enough of that place.

I think I am going to miss being a short distance away from home the most. It will be weird to not come home for the Mean Machine Concert and Thanksgiving this year but maybe I can make an appearance through Skype. :)I will miss my family a lot. Especially mom and dad. It sucks that I won't be able to come home and bake up a storm for a while. I am also gonna miss all the people at Luther, but I can't wait to see you all in the fall again. I hope that all you Luther people will go to the SAC Spotlight stuff thought. Karla, Theo, and I have worked pretty hard to get a line up for you!

Well, that's a good start I guess. 10 more days in the US!
