23 days and counting

My flight for Spain leaves on September 23. That gives me 23 days to figure out everything I need, prepare myself for this adventure, and pack. This afternoon I was the only one home so I got a few things done. Well, some of them were done yesterday/a few days ago, but its the same idea.

1. I moved everything from my HP laptop to my external hard drive so that I can take my laptop in to Best Buy and get the hard drive cleared off so that I can sell it on Amazon, Cragslist, Ebay, etc. If you are interested in buying it, let me know!!

2. I mailed the text book that someone bought from me on Amazon. I only got $10 commission for that one, but hey, it's $10 more than I had before!

3. Informed my employer that I will not be here for fall and filled out my leave of absence form for F21 so that I can return in the winter (hey, I'm gonna need money then too!)

4. Looked up flight prices for travel to visit Katelin in Texas in February or March ($100 on Southwest!!)

5. Made a packing list for Spain. It is pasted at the bottom of this post. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read through this and let me know if I am forgetting something (or just say "list looks good" if you can't come up with something else). It would definitely be bad if I forgot something. Please do that for me, it would be a HUGE help.

6. This isn't something that I've done, but I need to post the free printer and free iPod touch I got with my MacBook on Amazon or EBay. Once again, please let me know if you are interested in buying those things and how much you're willing to pay. Printer: $100 value. iPod touch: $250 value

definitly buy that last section of stuff once you get to spain - its less stuff you have to pack and will give you more room for other stuff. maybe even buy some school stuff there too??

and also my dear, i know it will be tough but i'm going to say shoe-wise that you should take a majority of walking shoes and limit yourself to ONE pair or heels that will go with many outfits and ONE pair of boots. i know it will be difficult, but you can do it! hahaha

welp, those are my thoughts. love you <3

Rachel said...
