Let the countdown begin...

Oh hello! (I said that in a British accent, just so you know. Practice!) Today marks 90 days until I leave for London.

I know I haven't posted much lately, but to be honest there's not a lot to talk about yet. I'm in a bit of a holding pattern right now, working two jobs and trying to spend as little money as possible so I can keep my savings account as close to its current balance as possible until I leave. The next step is to apply for my student visa, which can't be done until three weeks from now. That will probably be slightly exciting, so expect a post on that in the near future.

The thing I haven't touched yet is the packing/storage task. Which I could start anytime I want. Except that I don't want to, of course, because UGH, who wants to deal with that? I'm going to force myself to start writing small tasks related to that on my To-Do List sooner rather than later though. Because in spite of the OMG SO MUCH WORK factor, it's going to be one of the most tangible things I can do until I actually leave, which should send me into a lovely spiral of excitement.

Please do leave any advice/thoughts/suggestions for storing/packing your life away for a year in the comments. Although I've obsessed on this subject extensively for months, I'm a fan of advice.
