Lists o' Fun

The countdown is now just 3 days people! 3 days!! And you know what that means...time to make lists so I don't forget to do stuff/buy stuff/pack stuff. Here are my current lists:

Things To Do:

  • Put Mom on bank account (in case something should happen to me, like my brain exploding when Vesuvius erupts)
  • Print out train ticket (from Rome to Naples)
  • Pay Spring tuition (I got a half scholarship through BYU and ANOTHER half scholarship through the Study Abroad office--that means I'm only paying 1/4 of tuition!)
  • Pick up crap at Study Abroad office (cool study abroad backpack and water bottle included)
  • Call Sprint about phone use in Italy (so I can be as cool as the rest of those Italians with working cell phones)
  • Pack & consolidate (I'm only bringing two suitcases and a's gonna be rough)
  • Make packing list so I won't forget anything (I think I should probably do that FIRST)
  • Do laundry (Not doing until Wednesday, which means I might be smelly for the next few days)
  • Translate Latin passage from Dr. MacFarlane (I thought I'd be DONE with Latin forever when I took my 301 final, but NOOOOOO, I have to translate a geography passage before I get to Italy...poo)
  • Learn Italian (We'll be staying in a little town called Pollena, which means NO English speakers...except us...maybe I should have put this on a list a WHILE ago?)

Stuff to Buy

  • Sleep sack (We're not so sure WHAT exactly we'll be sleeping on yet...this should be fun)
  • Sunscreen (I burn easily...I was hoping to get some sun BEFORE I left...too bad Erika's mom is still hanging around in the Northern Hemisphere)
  • Jeans (Do I REALLY need an excuse? Gap, I'm coming!)
  • Purse to easily hide (Pickpocketing is BIG in Italy, so bringing a regular purse will mean theft, and we don't want that)
  • Random assortment of tolietries (It's not like I'm going to a 3rd world country without stores and what not. Just want an excuse to buy small travel-size items)
  • Notebook (Teehee...that's right, even though I'll be in Italy, I'm STILL actually taking classes and will probably still need the regular school supplies, book excluded)

Good thing I have 3 days to sit around in Ritz's apartment with all this stuff to do. Ready...set...GO!
