What will I miss while over seas?

Well, my departure day is around the corner everything is starting to finally sink in. I will not be in the states for at least two and a quarter years! It is so crazy to think that!

Inquiries have been made as to what I'd like in a "care package" and I think I have finally started to figure out the "Things I will miss" from the States and wouldn't mind discovering in a box with a lovely letter from the sender.

I have always loved reading, but there are times when I just don't feel like reading a book; during those times I enjoy reading magazines. I read everything from US Weekely and People, to Vogue and GQ, to TIME and The Week--hey, it's all about balance.
While I read, I tend to much on stuff. I love, Love, LOVE OREO Cookies, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and Reese's Fast Break bars, Twizzlers (strawberry), and Whoppers. I have no idea how chocolate will hold up in a trans-Atlantic, trans-Saharan journey, but I'm so down for finding out. 

I'm pretty sure I'll be reading a great deal, because of the whole little or no electricity thing, but when I'm at the Peace Corps House, I would love to catch up on my favorite shows. Bethenny Getting Married, Bones, Brothers and Sisters, Desperate Housewives, Dexter, Glee, Gossip Girl, Greek, Grey's Anatomy,HOUSE, Keeping Up With the Kardashian's, The Real Housewives of (anything but the OC), Royal Pains, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and Spartacus: Blood and Sand are just a few of the shows I can think of off the top of my head.  I have no idea how I've been able to keep up with so many shows, and some how managed to graduate from college.I mean, it could be because I used the shows as background noise while studying and what not, but who knows? If you are feeling charitable, and find yourself wanting to load show or two to a 2-4GB flash drive, you'll find no objection on my end. ;-)

On a more serious note, I know what I will miss most is each and every one of you all! I seriously want to keep in touch with as many people as possible and can't wait to hear about all the amazing things going on in you all's lives! Even if you don't feel like writing out a full letter, just scribble a note or something on a post card, and include the post card with your letter. I'd love to get postcards from all over- Texas, Tennessee, Gainesville, DC, South Florida, The Carolinas, just wherever. It's very likely that my villagers have never heard of any of these places, and I'd love to be able to show these places to them.

Well, I have a busy day of packing ahead of me tomorrow so it's probably best for me to turn it in for the night.

Happy blogging,
