It has been a busy summer for me so far so it should be nice to slow down. I've been trying to get my master's thesis started. It is certainly a learning experience. I'm looking forward to the break from that.
So far about the only prep I have done for the trip is getting my hiking backpack. I played with it a little bit when I first got it but since then it's been in the corner of my bedroom tags and all. I'll pack some time next week. I haven't really given much thought to what I'm going to bring. I imagine it won't be much though. Seamus and Noah, anything you wish you had brought?
That's about it for now. I'm going to focus on enjoying this last busy week for now. It shouldn't be difficult to do as I'm going to see my parents and Kelly before leaving. (Hopefully I'll get some work done too.)
