First Contact

[Insert happy giggling here]

I talked to Caitlin today on the phone for the first time and now I’m even more excited to come to Chicago than I was before. I was actually nervous calling, because it seems so weird to call a person you only know from the internet, but then it must be even weirder to actually fly across the ocean and stay with a person you only know from the internet, so weirdness is a relative thing. But then it wasn’t weird at all, just really, really, really nice.

Only five more days until our flight takes off and takes us over the ocean. We have nearly nothing planned, but so far it’s all been good, so although I already picture everything that could possibly go wrong, I’m pretty sure that we will have lots of fun and it seems the best way to make things up as we go along.

Chicago, here we come!
