time keeps on tickin', tickin', tickin'

One week left in Chicago. Nine days left in the U.S.
Obviously, with these fragmented sentences one can see that my mind is not focused!
How do I feel?
Well, I have about 25 topics constantly running through my head. (Where are my glasses? Are 9 pairs of pants way too many? Do I really need 5 different dictionaries? What else do I have to buy? Is my iPod jacked to the max?, etc.)

...and then there are the real things to be nervous about....
Will I have enough training? Can I really be a "youth developer"? How hard will it be to live without my friends? my family? How difficult will it be adjusting in my community? Will they see me as a "spoiled American"? Will I return hating modern civilization?

I know that these are just jitters but they still constantly run through my head.
But for now, I just want to thank everyone for being so supportive and positive about my up and coming job. Honestly, your support means more to me than you'll ever know.

Wish me luck during this crazy week!

    Dropped in and thought I'd leave a note saying I was here.

    I was surfin' for info on saving money (most of all at the gas pumps).

    I don't know if you are feeling the pinch, but I'm starting to feel as though I'm one step away from a bad credit rating. The pumps are emptying out our pockets pretty quick just driving back and forth to work!

    I've been considering following a stricter budget, we can't afford to take this lightly...feeling like there's no way out from under the fist of debt. Our current credit card rates are high, but I found a website that lists credit card deals online for getting cash back on future purchases.

    Anyway, enough ranting, sorry for the long post...

    I did want tell you that I like your blog. You have a very unique writing 'touch' and probably have many regular visitors. I'll be back!
