12am: Today is officially the 26th, the day I leave!!! Sometimes it feels real and other times not so much. My flight isn't until 10:20 tonight so I have the entire day to relax a little with the family. Packing is 99.9% finished. I can't think of anything else I need. I'm packing as little as possible and am just gonna wing it when I get there. One of my biggest goals is definitely to not worry about things. Worrying won't do me any good. I just need to figure out things as they arise and everything will be ok. Hopefully today will be draining so that I can sleep on the flight. I picked out my seats and printed my boarding passes already. I've never checked in online before but I can only imagine it'll make things even easier.

10am: It still does not seem real that I'm leaving. I have less things packed than I usually take with me for a week! I am overwhelmed by all of the love and support from everyone. The texts and messages said to me are the sweetest and mean so much. It makes me grateful for my amazing friends and family.

2:37pm: Driving to the airport holy crap!! Byeeee house.

5:24: I've been at my gate for a little while now. A few hours early (about five) but I'll take that over late any day. There's a flight taking off next to my gate going to Copenhagen that I'm about to run onto! I miss it there. I may even be at the exact same place I was at when I went there almost three years ago. I got a sandwich for dinner from potbellys and the bag says good vibes on it. Good luck sign number one. Overhead the radio is playing Joni Mitchell's circle game, not too bad either :) because I'm so early and the flight before mine just boarded and is about to leave, I got myself the perfect seat next to a charging station. I'm next to Starbucks too. I'll be set for the next few hours. I don't think it's really hit me yet that I'm going. It was sad saying bye to my parents and my sister. And going to the gate by train and security by myself was intimidating only for the first second. I got this :)

Well.. Lots of pinteresting ahead of me to pass the time..
