 Optimism is all it takes. 

I have been racking my brain trying to figure out exactly how to cram my everything in these two luggage bags. Staring at my luggage juxtapose my closet kinda bums me out. I hate to think of myself as materialistic but I feel that is exactly what I have become. The fact that I want to bring every little thing with me really bites. I have been desperately researching for tips on how to pack as much as possible. So far, I found these really neat space bags that you roll out all the air, they really seem to work but I just keep getting mad and taking out little by little here and there. Since my "First Draft Pack", as I like to call it, I have eliminated at least half of the things I originally wanted to take with me. I am going to do my "Final Draft" on the Saturday before I depart. I have 18 days until I leave and I must say, I am beyond nervous and excited. Venturing to another world clueless and curious. As the days come closer, I wish I could turn back time a little bit and save a little more money... but its ok. It's going to be an adventure and I feel that the best adventures are free. Let’s see what I can do with the $400 or €329.61 I have. It's not very much BUT! I will make the very best of it possible. Optimism is all that it takes.
