Even the Wizard of Oz had to come out from behind the curtain and face the world. This being said I have decided to stop hiding, to put myself out there and to make my dreams come true. I'm going to shoot for the stars, ask for the moon, and hope that I am not disappointed in the end. I have been told by many people recently that you can't get what you want if you aren't willing to ask for it. I have lived my life scared to go after what I really want and I'm tired of it.

I will be making big changes in the next couple weeks and in honor of stepping out of my comfort zone already I might as well go all out and see what could possibly happen. I have never been more scared in my life. I get knots in my stomach just thinking about it all but good knots and good fear.
The garage sale is over and can be classified as a complete success. I sold way more than I thought I would and got to help out charity with the items I couldn't sell. I am using the money to assist in expenses I have accrued in my time here as well as a contribution to a worthy cause. It was stressful, long, and boring at points but I'm glad I put in the work to get it done and mostly that it is over with. Now onto my next big task of actually preparing to move.
I started packing today and have pretty much cleared all unnecessary items out of my room and am going to start work on the other areas later tonight and tomorrow. I want to have as much packed as possible by the end of the week because the next week will be busy and I just don't want to have that to worry about. It's bad enough that I haven't seen my lease yet and I'm supposed to have it signed by Sunday. Lots to do and time is quickly running out to get it done in.
I don't want to have to spend so much time working on my stuff here because there are other projects that I would rather be helping out with. But I know that my first responsibility right now is to my move and getting prepared for that as well as enjoying the last couple weeks that I have with my family and friends here.
After listing out all that I need to get done it is time to put on a pot of water, make myself a cup of tea and prepare for a long night. But first I have a couple e-mails to send out about my future. Here goes nothing.
