My trip has begun!!! Dallas today.... pre-staging!!
Of course, I barely slept because I had a million things to think of and take care of before I left, so after a mere 1 hour nap, I woke up to get to the airport (4:30am! yuck!) My whole life is packed in 2 duffel bags, a backpack, and a purse.... can you BELIZE it???! Wow! To top it off, I'm pretty sure I was on the tiniest plane man ever invented on the flight to Dallas.... but by 9:30 central time, I was at staging!
Staging was a lot of general paperwork and information. We did some icebreakers (made me think of Converse! lol) and just went over a million different things! Of the 38 of us, I met the other 7 who are in the Healthy Communities project with me! Everyone is so outgoing and friendly and just really great thus far!! It seemed like we were close friends after knowing each other for only hours... A bunch of us even went to have our "last meal" and some good ole American beer tonight before heading home to re-pack and get ready for the major part of our adventure. (We also got to experience Dallas locals.... crazy.hahaha Only in Texas!)
I'm so exhausted and trying to get everything in before tomorrow... I'm not sure how much internet access I will get from here on out, but I will post whenever possible!!! Hopefully more in-depth as things settle down!
Otherwise, I'm so excited for tomorrow!!!
over & out =)
