Haven't had peace of mind in days. I don't know if it's the jitters or the anxiety or the madness or a combination of the three, but my head is quite an uncool place to dwell in at the moment. The transition to the United States doesn't seem to be going as I had it planned eons ago. But as of two seconds ago, I have decided that I have no reason whatsoever to be kvetching. This is going to be quite an adventure!

Besides trying to hit the mental brakes and seeing the darkness in every lighted, uh, area, I have been and will still be catching up with a whole bunch of people who power up my life like a 500-megawatt solar plant. I have also been embarking on mini-adventures with my family, cousins and friends -in preparation for the biggest adventure yet, perhaps. Life has been great, God has been ever-present and I am slowly beginning to feel mushy so I shall stop short on this note.

On another note, however, the preparations to the U.S. of A have been driving me up the wall. I don't mind having to call the university every now and then and speak to five different offices to get my questions answered; I don't mind stuffing myself with Malaysian food to face the complete lack of it over there; I don't mind making checklists and ensuring that things go as planned. But it's the immensely time-consuming packing that makes me want to pull every single strand of my hair out -with extensions or not. I made a little bit of progress today by sorting out the clothes I intend to bring there in one of the luggage bags. But that is about all I've done and I am not looking forward to the rest of the 95.72% of packing.

On yet another note, I am going to be having a Nebraskan roommate because the single room I requested for at the university's residence hall ran out, I am assuming. She has quite a cool name and replies messages I send to her. I am both glad and relieved that we are getting off on the right foot. Stoked, as always!

Trusting the Man Upstairs to pave the way ahead.

PP/S: The most gigantic shout-out to the Yeo family, which has been too cute for words and overwhelmingly understanding. More so than I can ever be, and I am beyond grateful.
PPP/S: I have issues which have issues. No kidding.
