Basically, I told them I'm happy to be out.
So I am officially in my last week in Texas. I was considering going up to Dallas this Saturday. Graduation weekend didn't go so well with some people and I would really hate for that to have been the last time I saw them before I leave for a year.
That and I kind of wanted to go see No Doubt. But, I have enough money to pay my bills next month and take myself for a couple of activities this next week. I think going to Dallas would use up pretty much all of my extra cash.
I love the look on people's faces when they find out for the first time that I'm going to Taiwan. It's a look of shock and awe all at once. Hilarious. I kind of wish I had a camera out each time. Their eyebrows raise, jaws drop and eyelids shoot wide open.
Anyway, immediately after the shock wears off they ask if I know Taiwanese, why I'm going and if I'm scared. Then they realize I only have a week left here. This results in everyone saying, "Oh my god, we need to hang out before you leave!"
I need to create a list of activities I'm doing over the next week so people can join me.
Any suggestions for things I need to do before I leave?
I am planning dinner Friday night I think. Nothing nearly as formal as graduation weekend. Something cheap and easy, but American (or Mexican) and yummy.
Though I have been craving sushi. Maybe I'll drum up some people for Kyoto happy hour on Thursday.
Man, there are a lot of things to do before I leave and not enough time. I'm starting to get nervous and maybe a little bit scared. This is a BIG deal.
