It's funny how there's some things that seem so far off in the future, things that are fun to plan for, and so you lay these plans- feel good about them, but it still seems like something over the horizon. Then, all of a sudden, that thing is looking you dead in the eye, and it's time to put your plans into action. It always happens so quickly. It takes you by surprise. That's how I feel about the end of my mission and going back home to college and rm life. To be sure, I'm excited to go home, to see all of you again, and to be able to do all the things I've missed (including but not limited to: martial arts, pursue talents, read good books, watch good movies and tv shows, be where I want when I want with the people I want to be with). At the same time, though, I think it'll be harder than I thought to reintegrate. I'm just not the same person I was, and my mission means so much to me. I know that for the first week or so I'm going to be feeling like I should be back here on the mission. I think it's good and healthy. Like dad says, it means I've done a good job. I'll be sad to say goodbye to so many good friends, but life will go on as it always does. Life is good.
A couple big things on my list to do are as follows: I must see Star Wars VII as soon as possible. Let me repeat the as soon as possible part. That needs to be followed fairly closely by all the big Marvel movies I've missed. Also Star Wars: Rogue One comes out two days after I get home. I must see it. I think that covers my big to-do list items. I'll be shipping things off tomorrow morning before we head out to Rego. I've decided to send two packages- one big one with the stuff that takes up too much space (i.e; bedding, pillows, a few books, etc), and the other will be a flat-rate box I can load up with heavy stuff, because they don't charge by weight :) Everything else will definitely fit in my two (2) suitcases. I'll be fine. Yes, I will be sleeping at the Mission Home tomorrow night :) I'm pretty excited.
Well, I guess this is it. Unless I need money or something, I'll talk to you on Wednesday! I love you all!
