This blog isn't actually being told In Media Res, partly because I've never been a fan of the epic, but mostly because I'm writing about things as they happen to me. But this part of my life is In Media Res for now, and it doesn't seem fair to act like this is the beginning of any story, even of one for 6 weeks of the summer. It's not my first blog, or my first journal, or anything that would warrant this entry to be particularly titled as such, so I won't title it that way.
Today is Thursday, and I leave for London on Saturday. I have managed to assemble everything I'm intending to pack in my room but have yet to worry about actually packing that. In all reality that process will probably occur sometime tomorrow, probably while I should be sleeping. With any luck it will get done with enough time to make it to the airport without speeding over I270.
For now I'm just going to continue not packing and trying not to be too nervous for the upcoming adventure.
