Packing…I am officially not a fan. How do I pack everything that I need for the next 2 years of my life in 2 suitcases (but really only one because I am checking my backpacking backpack)? After much thought I have decided to bring everything I need for backpacking (ie. tent, sleeping bag, etc). Even if I don’t use it that often it is just a comfort to have. If I am put in the middle of nowhere, I will have basic sleeping needs and a shelter, which makes me feel better.
I have to bring so much stuff I don’t even know where to start! The packing list the Peace Corps gives you includes seeds, a knife, cookbooks, and a plastic egg carrier…ummm…what? Yeah, I don’t even know.
So much to do, but presently all I can do is lay on the floor of my room and stare at all the stuff I own, overwhelmed.
