why did I start this now?

While I could pull out the obvious excuse that I wanted to make sure I got the site addy that I wanted (you'd be surprised... I couldn't get the addy I wanted for my other philosophy blog), really, I started this now, at Christmas time, because I'm SO excited about this trip.

I've been guidebook and internet and advice hunting for my trip all thru my holidays. Now... to make it thru the next 5 months of school.... Oh, and graduate. Right. That....
