Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair

I know, I know. I promised more updates and I lied. Who would have thought that working part-time at Macy's would be so exhausting.

I'm on my way. I flew to San Francisco this morning. From Spokane to Las Vegas and from Las Vegas to San Francisco. Not too bad, especially considering that the next leg of my trip will take 24 hours.

So far I feel...okay. I did better than I thought on the plane over. I thought I would be much more freaked out. Now I'm starting to get a bit more panicky. I'm in a hostel now and while it is very nice, one of my roommates seems a bit scary. Not a student, more like an old homeless lady. I'm sitting in a lounge area because I don't want to stay in my room. I feel out of place and at this moment I just want to go home. I wish I had sprung for a single room.

Oh well, I'll be fine. I definitely won't be getting much sleep this week. I don't land in Bangalore until 1:30 am Monday morning and have to be up and ready for orientation at 8:30 am. I'll be exhausted and I'm sure I'll be a sobbing mess by the end of the week. Don't be too freaked out by that. Things will start to calm down after the first week is over. I'll be able to sleep and will begin adjusting to everyday life in Bangalore.

Talk to you when I get there!

  1. Erika... I know you'll be awesome there. It may be rough, but always remember: it's your life and you can do what you want with it! If you feel sad or whatnot, just always remember why you came to India and why you want it. Explore!!! I believe in you!!! I know I'm sounding like a cheesy mom, but, well, I guess I am @_@. YOU ROCK AND I CAN'T WAIT TO TALK TO YOU WHEN YOU'RE THERE!!!
