Oh, the woes of packing

As you all know from my post yesterday, I’m getting ready to leave for Edinburgh, Scotland on Saturday. That is in five days. 1-2-3-4-5. Ask me how my packing is going, I dare you?

I’m going to tell you anyway – hence the title of this blog post.

Packing is not going. At all. I do have one suitcase done, but that was the easy stuff because it was mostly heavy sweaters and jackets. I still have basically everything to do and I can’t bring myself to do it.

Maybe it is the fact that I need to shove everything I am going to need for a year in a few suitcases or I’m just incredibly scared, but it is just not getting done.

I’ll admit it, I’m a horrible procrastinator. I leave everything to the last minute no matter how hard I try not to. It is my vice and I will live with it until the day I die (or magically overcome it; that would be lovely). But it’s not just the procrastination that is getting to me.

I’m feeling so overwhelmed with everything I have to do (both packing and non-packing related) that I just don’t do it and don’t think about it. To top it all off, I’m constantly tired. My body is trying to deal with the stress of having to pack my life up for a year and leave all my family and friends behind…and I’m not liking how it is reacting.

I definitely need some help and/or guidance.

So here is my question to you, my readers: What should I do to get out of this funk..and fast. Let me know if you have any suggestions in the comments below.

I know everything will be done in time to leave (it sort of has to), I’m just trying to avoid last minute panic if possible.

I’ll be picking which books I’m bringing with me on my journey (to start me off, of course) over the next two days, so my original bookies – and hopefully my new readers – should enjoy my next post 😉

Until next time,
