After several months of planning and preparation, Operation: Dolphins and Tropical Birds, otherwise known as “I’m moving to Miami for grad school” is about to commence.
The bags are packed, the car is stuffed full of most of my worldly possessions (A lot easier than you’d think, thanks to my Kindle. Turns out that the vast majority of my worldly possessions were books and book shelves) audio books are queued up for the drive, and the tank is full of gas.
Just two tasks left, and I’m off for a twelve plus hour drive. First, in order of importance rather than temporality (Holy crap, that’s actually a word? Score!), is to wake up at 4 in the A-M and strap Bella to the back of my car. Bella is my bike. She’s a beautiful Italian lady, and sadly I’ve had to admit that I like her more than a good chunk of people that I’ve met over the years. It’s not a big chunk of people, but giving an inanimate object preference treatment over any number of people, tends to highlight my ability to be a horrible human being. Or at least it should.
Task number two, is to start this blog, The Further Adventures of an Accidental Ninja. I’ll explain the title at some later date. So in a matter of minutes this blog will be officially started, and I will be locked in to reporting on my travels, adventures, and random crap that runs through my life and brain. Or at least as locked in as I can be without someone giving me money or pointing a gun at my head. Then I’ll spend a good hour or five nitpicking over what free theme I want to use until my gray matter figures out how to create my own.
In any case, in less than twelve hours I’ll be strapping a bike to my car, and driving for two days, followed by the joys, panics and paranoia’s of moving into a new city, where the one person you knew moved away to be a flight attendant (thanks a lot Rhonda!!!), starting grad school, and freaking out over money. With any luck, I’ll survive the next two years.
Write at you latter…
