I created this for the sole purpose of letting people know that is going on in my soon-to-be-exciting life. I would do mass emails, but that makes people feel obligated to care. By creating a blog, I can post what's up and whoever really does care can check it obligation free.
In 18 days and 16 hours, I will depart to spend one semester attending school in Jerusalem, Israel. Why may you ask? The original reasons no longer exist, but essentially I'm going because I want to, and because I'm young, not married, already behind in school, and heck, why not? I don't anticipate it do be something I will look back on and say, "Why did I do that? It wasn't that cool." On the contrary, I expect to look back and say "Dude! I should have gone TWICE!" because when I'm eighty, what will I care about: that I graduated on time, or had the time of my life? I will not insult your intelligence by answering that.
So get ready to be jealous of all the cool things I get to do very soon. Don't worry, I'll post pictures. It will be like you are.... not there and looking at pictures of where you wish you could be. On that note, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Years.
