I’m about to take a really big first step. Forget the fact that I’m getting married in less than a month, that I’m quitting my job, traveling through Asia with no set plan, and then permanently moving to Switzerland – No, my big first step is creating this blog! I admit, I’m a blogging virgin, but I’m doing this for all of you!!
Since the many other life-altering changes are imminently approaching, I’ve come to find people are treating me like I’m dying. Remember when we did this… oh my God, I’m going to miss you so much! I’m never going to see you again! Oh, I also get the You know we’re not really going to stay in touch when you move a lot too. And while it boggles my mind as to why people think either of these things are actually true, I’ve decided to prove them all wrong (I did always like being right!) and stay in touch through this blog. See, I am neither a) dead to you or b) doing a bad job of staying in touch.
Okay, okay, twist my arm and I’ll admit that I do have a selfish motive too. I’m about to embark on a really fun and weird and embarrassing and mind opening journey that I wish I could take you all on with me! I need you there with me when I accidentally tell someone in German I like to eat feet instead of I like to eat ice cream or when they ask what I like to do for fun and I respond with I have long brown hair (which is my default sentence and almost the extent of what I can currently say in German).  I also want you to cheer me on as I go on job interviews and to ohh and ahh over some wedding planning pictures. You’re important to me, and I want you here in my life!
