- i am a horrible, and i mean horrible, journal keeper
- i want to blog about italy in the fall, mostly for my family and friends to cut down on the emailing
- it's a nice way to express my thoughts and feelings
i got my passport today. who would have thought that paying $116 dollars for a picture that doesn't show your teeth and a book with some stamps in it would be so exciting? i guess it is what comes from that little picture that holds the real meaning. this means i can travel the world. this means i can experience life outside of happy valley, and outside of my comfort zone. i can experience culture and beauty in a place filled with all of the above.
