 YES! I leave on Sunday which is crazy. I'm totally not ready, but I will be... somehow... There's a lot of details to work out yet, but I think I will have enough time on Friday and Saturday to get them handled. I tend to get ready fairly quickly when it comes down to it. This just feels like a bigger deal than usual, so I want to be sure that I have what I need. ;)

 

Bigger than Africa? :D It's such fun to watch you travel all over and I am super excited for you on this. Hope weather plays along, but then it should because as the saying goes "When angels travel..." ;)

I got my contract yesterday in the mail. I'm going to be working with a lawyer to look at it, so I think that I will be able to send it off to him and then not worry about it while I'm on my trip. I think I will send a reminder to my future boss that I received the contract and will be working on it and unable to return it to them while I'm out of the continent. :) It pushed things back a little bit, but it should work out in the end.

 

Oh YAY how perfect! Congratulations

You're doing great. I'm proud of you. How is the meditating helping? Have you noticed a difference in your moods or mindset?

 

And since you and I have shared great music before, this guy, William Matthews, is good friends with the members of Gungor and a regular on The Liturgist podcast, and he just released an album back in November:

Thanks, Wolfen! Meditation isn't a new practice for me, so I can't say that I've noticed a big difference. I keep it up because it gives me a time to get centered and listen to my breath. The part that was new was using the new app - Insight Timer, which I enjoy. I had been using Headspace previously, which was more guided. I like that Insight Timer has options, but most of the time I just watch my breath.

 

That was great! Thanks for sharing. :)

I just saw that you're going to reach near -50C in Minneapolis this next week, and was like, oh no, poor Annyshay! And then I thought: luckily for her she'll be in Antarctica, lol :D

It's this week, so I'm not missing the freeze. It's actually a warm up for Antarctica. I've been using my gear and feeling fine. Today is wicked cold though. :/

I don’t remember complaining about the cold. We were sledding as the vortex was burying the thermometer. I do wish that my car would start though.

 

ETA: They just called an unprecedented fourth day off of school and the mail isn’t running. There are still a few hardy souls biking around though (I’m not that tough).

Hats' off to them, whether they are complaining about the weather or not. I don't think I'll be able to handle that cold, proper gear or not.

There's no such thing for -50.

Unless you can carry with you a warm blanket, a hot thick chocolate mug, and a fireplace burning with the fire of the underworld. Then I guess it could be more or less fine.

Yes! Potential job is in Albany, so we will be much closer together.

I am just in awe how you handle the cold. I truly can't imagine living in such cold temps.

I have some pics from +-6yrs ago when we visited the Cape and saw a colony of Rock Penguins there. It was amazing! I can't wait for @annyshay's photos of Antarctica and their penguins.
