Okay, so. Egypt. I am so incredibly psyched for the trip, and in the meanwhile making the best of the time I have left here. Traveling around via khombi, studying Arabic, reading my psychology books, and getting some writing done.
I'm also dealing with various issues that need to be dealt with. My mind hasn't been in the right place for quite a few months. This trip was, probably to some degree, me trying to escape things. And that might be a good solution in the short term--but a year was going to be a bit excessive. But I think I am on my way to coping with things. What bugs me the most is that coping and adapting is a life-long process, not something I can sit down and have done in a few days. I guess that's part of the "fun".
Anyway, I am leaving for Egypt on the 13th, and staying there.... well, I don't know how long yet. One month to a few months, perhaps. And in the meanwhile, adventuring. I refuse to regret leaving--especially since I have set a goal to come back within a few years.
