I have until Saturday to pack everything and make sure that all loose ends have been tied. Today was my last day at work and for more moments than I thought possible, I thought about how I am going to miss the place. At the end of today, I packed more stuff into folders at work than what I have packed for my trip. Priorities.
Job applications are another set of loose ends that need my attention. Since I will be broke and unemployed when I come back (wait, that's true now!), I want to send out as many apps as possible. Tomorrow I'll be in Corona taking a test which I have no idea what will be on it. My trip to Europe isn't helping matters of course. A handful of places will probably start calling for interviews. But I'm optimistic because the last time I was in a foreign country (rhymes with Calexico), I got a call from UCLA and that led to a position on campus.
And I need to pick up contact lenses, return stuff to Distant Lands (travel store in Pasadena), call my credit card companies where I'll be, and cash in that life insurance.
Next up...why I'm going to Europe.
