It's all happening!

Well kids, here we go. After months of planning, weeks of leaving, and days of packing, I've completed the first leg of the BM.

I'm now in New York with my friend Jenni Kim for a whirlwind weekend of crizz-aziness before finally heading over to England for grad school.

I'm taking my dad with me - because I'm secure in my grown-upness. We're going to bash around England for a week (and hopefully procure some accomodations for Jessi) before he heads back to his real life. My brother once drove from Anchorage to LA with my father in what he dubbed "a ten day nugget of wisdom." I have high hopes. We've already covered Morality in America, Creativity and the Christian, the definition of "impossible," and John Piper. Well, I'm pretty sure that Piper has not yet been exhausted.

We flew from Anchorage to Newark together, but then parted ways at the airport. I went to Jenni's to spend the weekend eating and going to shows and shopping, and he's going on some man-vacation that will involve many many hours behind a car wheel, a fair amount of sunflower seeds, and more cans of A&W Diet Rootbeer then I care to dwell on. We will meet up on Sunday afternoon for our trip across the pond.

Before I left, I did this:



Also, with the help of many willing movers and shakers, we were able to turn this:

Into this:


More to come!
