First Post

So obviously this is the first time i have done this. The point of this blog is to document leaving Virginia, moving to Sweden to blow glass at Orrefor's school in Sweden and the learning and hilariosity (aka really funny things) which will ensue. Hopefully this will serve as a tool to keep people up to date with my life who live far away and are curious and also to amuse and provide insight into this life changing journey.

I have decided to leave my life in Virginia and go out on my grand adventure... Now I know Sweden is cold and dark a lot, and why would you go there for your grand adventure and not like some pacific island or India?!? Because my friends, Sweden is the motherland, literally my mother is from there, and because I want to blow glass. I want to start having a life where I can be creative everyday and where I can find fulfillment in what I do and create. And to really experience the Country of my heritage (and hopefully learn some Swedish!). Today is my last day at work as Planner/Zoning Administrator (working for local government). Today I ate cake for breakfast because my wonderful friends at work gave me a little going away party. and Today I am cleaning out my desk and leaving my office. I figured it was as good as any other day to start the blog.

In the next week I will move out my house that I share with my lovely boyfriend and his brother and take my things to my parents house. Go to a great party tonight, wedding tomorrow and do a lot of packing. I will then hopefully be going to Topsail Island with my two best friends and relaxing and laughing until my sides hurt. So I am not exactly sure when I will post again, it might be sporadic. Also I will try to improve the general look of this blog. Right now I am aware that I have a giant picture on the top and an airplane... not very exciting. I will fix I promise. Just figured I better start or I might put it off and just never do it.

OK, I am off to go home and enjoy my afternoon. The desk is clean and this stage of life is over. And now for something completely different (Monty Python of course!).
