in the next few months i have quite a bit goin’ on…
in a week i am flying to new york to attend the hotel motel and restaurant show with a big group of fellow hospitality students (i am taking 4 days off at work but thank the high heavens for vacation pay)
over christmas time i am driving to arizona (a 6 hour drive from san diego, give or take an hour and a speeding ticket) to spend time with nearly all of my extended family! i am especially excited because 1. this is quite a rarity… we are all so spread out that it is so difficult for everyone to come together. and 2. last christmas i had to work. blerg. so i missed out on our ritual christmas eve festivities and our WHITE ELEPHANT game.
and of course, in the very beginning of january i am flying to ireland!
now all i need to do is figure out how to become an efficient packer in… t-6 days. new york will be a test run. but i’m mostly concerned about packing for ireland. oiy vey.
i’m doing a bit of research on good luggage, seeing as i don’t own any. and it is on my current to do list.
- look nice
- cost very little
- be sturdy and reliable
- hold everything i need
i’ll return with my results soon.
