Introspection Binge

In just over two weeks I will be on my way to the Bahamas!  I've been thinking about this trip for years and it just seems so surreal that it is so close now.  I have a feeling that the whole first week on the ship I'm going to keep asking myself, "Is this really happening!?!"

I'm not one to get really into posting quotes usually, but I found some good ones to keep in mind during my trip that I wanted to share.

So you doin'?

Hot to live life 101

More wisdom from Doctor Who

Whitman, I love you.

Be doing that a lot on this trip.

      As I was putting together this collection of quotes, I started on an introspection binge about where I am in life now and what I'm expecting from the months ahead.  I am quite sure that this trip will change me in many ways and that is a rather large thing to think about.
     If you know me, you probably know that I love collecting things.  Sometimes it's physical things like items for my "collection of strange things" (think things that would belong on the Island of Misfit Toys), but most often it is more in the form of ideas, pictures, and thoughts.  Right now I am setting out to collect pieces of my current self so I can look back after the trip is over.  I guess it's kind of like a time capsule, but not nearly as structured.  I also want to explore my goals for this trip and get myself in the right frame of mind before I begin.  To do this, I have come up with a list of questions I want to write about in the next two weeks before I leave.  This will be fun to look at later and will help me think about where I am and where I want to go.  The questions are:

  • What are your goals for this trip?
  • How do you expect to change on this trip?
  • What are you most looking forward to?
  • What are you most anxious about?
  • What will you miss about home?
  • What will you miss least about home?
  • What are you feeling right now?
  • What are your hopes for this trip?
I'm not going to post my answers on here now, but perhaps after the trip with comments about how things actually went.  :0)
