Taking off and flying blind

Let's forget about the list for a minute. Just about everything is done. The other things, well, I guess I'll live without. At this point tomorrow, I will be mid-flight, headed across the Atlantic. No going back, no running scared. This. Is. It.

I know this is going to be fun and it's a once in a lifetime opportunity. It's going to be amazing. But it's going to be very far from home and from my friends. Tyler is going with me which makes this a little easier. I will make great friends there, I'm sure, but it's still kind of terrifying. I know I will miss my friends and my family and my professors and even my dog. I'll miss my books and the TV and working at the Jammin Java.

But this is my life now. My life is bigger than this. It will soon be time to go.

So kiss me and smile for me. Tell me that you'll wait for me. Hold me like you'll never let me go. Cause I'm leavin' on a jet plane. I don't know when I'll be back again. Oh baby, I hate to go.
