"Congratulations! Today is your day. You're off to Great Places! You're off and away! You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go."
I'm not sure what audience Dr. Seuss had in mind for Oh, the Places You'll Go, but today, I feel like all of the events he talks about happening in this book are going to be true and relevant for me throughout the next year. If you haven't read it, here is a link for you to have it read to you: Oh, the Places You'll Go Video. It's nice to know that I will, more likely than not, succeed while I'm off, out, and about.
I'm about to get on my plane. I've shoved as much stuff as I possibly could into 5 bags. I'm starting my travels at 830 am from when I leave my house. I'm ending at Brigitte's apartment at about 8 pm on Thursday (Korea time) or about 4 am Washington time. The next 20 hours consist of the following:
Leave house with lots of stuff
Check in at Spokane's airport (good ole GEG)
Fly to Seattle
Go through customs in Seattle (Spokane doesn't have this option)
Fly to Seoul
Take a bus from the airport to the bus station
Meet up with driver
Drive to Brigitte's work to get her apartment key (and if I'm lucky, reunite with her for a brief moment)
Drive to Brigitte's apartment
Wait for approximately an hour for Brigitte to get off work
Sleep! (Or potentially meet up with my other friends there for a quick drink and salutations, then sleep)
Regardless of how tired I will be, I'M ON MY WAY and I just can't wait to finally BE in Korea.
