“Holy Crap — We’re actually doing this” Moment #1

by Jason -- October 7, 2009


It’s all starting to feel a little surreal. I was in the gym today and realized that this will probably be one of the last times I workout in that particular gym. It’s a strange feeling. I’m so use to my routine that it’s hard to imagine not getting up in the same bed, not going to the same gym, and not going to work to the same cube. This is essentially all I’ve known the last 4+ years.

I’m obviously excited, but also starting to get a little nervous with so much change coming so quickly. Not having a steady paycheck and watching my savings continually drain is slightly nerve-wracking.

At the end of the trip though, I highly doubt that I’ll regret the decision to go. For now, it will be interesting to see the next couple of weeks how many more of these “holy crap, we’re actually doing this” moments I have.

  1. I am actually crapping my own pants right now. True, some of it has to do with meatloaf and a penchant for emotional eating. But I’m crapping myself out of excitement for you. I feel like we’re fellow inmates and you just broke out of jail. I will start planning my own escape tomorrow. So far, all I can think of is carving a gun out of a bar of soap…and that is proving problematic since there is only liquid soap at work, and I don’t have a knife, but besides my inability to carve it’s a solid plan.

  2. Haha..thanks Scott!

  3. You so will not regret this! Jason, I already told you but you are seriously my hero. I’m planning my own escape already too!! Enjoy every moment of the trip…surreal and all!
