So now, I play the waiting game. I am supposed to hear from SATO travel which is the Peace Corps' branch of travel. They are supposed to send me some tickets within the month. That's pretty much the final straw before I get up out of here. It's crazy to think I will be leaving for Ukraine in less than 2 months! Weird.
I've also been dreaming a lot recently. Considering my mother is a dream therapist, I do not take dreams for granted. I have had some weird dreams about haunted houses, playing professional baseball, and traveling back in time. I feel like I am going through the transition of a life time, and this culminating experience of leaving is probably the driving force behind all these subconscious thoughts. Also, those of you that have watched the movie Inception, know that dreams are not something to be messed with. The other night, I had a dream that a woman was talking to me about how awesome I am, and that I am really growing up. It was crazy, because midway through her sentence I remember turning to her and saying: "I know these things already, remember? You're just part of myself." She proceeded to smile and just walk away as if she had nothing else to tell me. It was intense because now that I think about it, I have never taken control of my dream before this way. As if to tell myself, "Hey, I know who I am, you don't have to remind me."
I feel like the dream above underlines this period in my life: I know who I am, and I know where and why i'm going. The countdown is nigh.
