Getting excited!

I am becoming ridiculously excited about Frontier Bound in November.   Seriously, can Nov 8th hurry up and get here already!?

This is what I've done for preparation:

* Banyan Tree 101 - DONE
* Register for Frontier Bound - DONE
* Pay registration fees - DONE
* Mail Health Forms - DONE
* Read Wide Neighborhoods- Need to finish this

Now all I need to do is get my Ipod Touch (which should be arriving today, yay!) and save up my pennies for the trip.  I'll be driving, so I will just need gas money and then of course funds for buying grad school swag.  I hope they have lots of things..I want to be a walking buildboard for Frontier, haha!!

I'm still looking for someone to ride with, but the few students that are in my class and from Virginia are flying. Boo.  I'm stocking up on audiobooks though, and quite honestly I think I'll enjoy the drive.  I drove a little over 7 straight hours overnight when we went down to Florida a few weeks ago and I really liked it. (as long as I have audiobooks, otherwise I may fall asleep)


  1. I know, right?? Frontier and the job search are two things that are constantly in my thoughts these days. I am just about where you are in terms of getting ready, except for my health form and deciding whether to get the iPod Touch or iPhone (leaning more towards the former, though).

    You're brave to be driving that far on your own! But at least you might enjoy it. Sadly, 2.5 hours probably is my limit for driving. I have issues with getting sleepy, esp. depending on what time of day it is, and it just gets so boring for me. I wish I had the stamina that some people have for driving long distances!

    Oh, and as you already know, I am also very excited to get some Frontier gear/apparel! :)

  2. I can't wait until we can meet each other. I'm thinking you should take this opportunity to move to Virginia LOL

  3. they do have a gift shop that you'll be able to get all of your fun stuff at :) hoodies, sweatshirts, tshirts, baby onesies, window decals, books, mugs, etc etc etc.

  4. @Ginny: lol! :) I'm very excited to meet you, too!
    @nurse midwife in the making: Eeeeee, so cool! :)

  5. I am literally going to buy one of everything in the store LOL
