And I'm leaving on a jet plane!!

*bows* sorry for the lack of posting last week--I've been packing, running errands, and doing that tourist thing in Dallas.

I never realized how much stuff in general I was going to need for my up and coming study abroad to Japan. holy smokes! thank goodness I've been saving for this trip for the past two years or I don't think I'd have enough money to make it there in time!!

Anyways...there are a few things that I am thankful for and I would like to give them a round of applause.

Skype <-- I don't know under what rock I have been living under but I can't believe that I never used this before! for those who had no idea what Skype is take a look at their website This is what I am planning on using for communication while I'm in Japan--my skype name is ndrea.abreu

Airplane AC adapters <-- saving me from the insanity of a 12 hour and 55 minute flight

Awesome Texas Paraphanelia <-- I have been blessed with being from or identified by states that have an exceeding about of pride in their statehood (Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Texas) For my host family I was given the job of figuring out what to get them, It should be something regional and related to where you live (think of it as a souvenir from where you come from). I give this a round of applause because there was SO MUCH stuff that I could've gotten. I opted for a small horse shoe door hanger thing with the Texas flag on it and a sampler set of all Texas Barbecues. :)

My Wallet <-- it's really put up a good fight. I don't know about anyone else but I alway find that going on a trip big or small gives me an excuse to buy exorbitant amounts of things that at that moment I "need" >.< I've been very good about this so far. *deep breaths* there were some stressful times but I believe my wallet deserves a round of applause for surviving. -yay!-

Lists <-- of which I have many.

as for now I'm signing off of this blog and posting till I get back on this one this'll be my travel blog where I'll be posting pictures and cool things I've done so far. :) see ya there til July 29th!!!

--signing off for now--
