So it's finally here. Departure day. Everything I have been working towards for the last year is all coming together. My car is sold. My cell phone contract has ended. My job has been quit. I have no commitments holding me back. Just go.
Even as I sit here at the departure gate, the full weight of my endeavour has yet to sink in. It comes in waves of shear terror mixed with pure excitement. I know this is what I am meant to do. And even though I have little knowledge of what adventures lie ahead of me I know they will be life changing and justify, above and beyond, the anxiety leading up to this day.
My row is being called. Here I go.
