Maybe I should review the facts and get to the bottom of this insanity.
1-In 4 days, I am going to Tanzania for 27 months
2-I am in the Peace Corps
3-I want to try to do something worthwhile with some part of my life
4-I am going to miss my life right now
5-Beyond next week, I really have no life in MI
6-I am ridiculously excited
7-I am scared (mostly of getting sick)
8-I still have a lot to do before I go
9-I will never feel like I said goodbye to everyone
10-My take on the world will never be the same
11-I am going to be "other" for the 1st time in my life
12-I still can't really speak Kiswahili
13-I enjoy all human interaction too much for that to matter
14-I need a bigger knife
So, this is a short list of the facts I can think of on the fly. This isn't really helping me realize that this is about to happen VERY soon. I guess that it's not that big of a deal because in just a few short days my African Adventure will commence, and I will be fastened into a jet plane headed to Washington DC, eating pretzels, drinking diet pop and thinking, "Well, here goes..."
