"Come tomorrow, I'll wake up new..." ~Chad Shugg

"Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, creeps in this petty face from day to day." ~William Shakespeare

"Tomorrow is Pregnant and no one knows what she will give birth to..." ~African Proverb

As you can see from the quotes above, my current focus lies on tomorrow due to the fact that I depart  tomorrow and I will officially arrive in Shanghai on Thursday. I'm full of stress (I'm still packing ;/ ) and my emotions are running incredibly high. I cannot believe that I'm going to China...


As I mentioned previously, I'm still in shock over my decision to go to China.  If someone had told me a year ago that I would be going to China, I would given them a wicked side-eye followed up with enormous gales of incredulous laughter. As I mentioned previously on this blog, China, or Asia in general was never on my radar, but, life happens and I never question my gut.

 The reality has not really hit me that I'm going to be boarding a plane in a few short hours (with a hella long flight) and waking up on the other side of the world ( a day later). The reality that I'm willingly leaving my comfort zone of the west to voluntarily go to the east.  The reality that I'm living abroad again...

I posted the above quotes because they convey my current thoughts. I don't know what tomorrow or this adventure may hold but a few things are certain: tomorrow is a new day, living a new dream, with new experiences, and in the future, new stories and anecdotes to share with a brand new outlook.

So, I will leave you now so I can finish packing and hopefully, I can catch some zzzz's.  All I ask is that you keep me in your positive thoughts (or prayers) because I would truly appreciate it.

Have a wonderful night and see you on the other side of the world!


  1. I'm hoping that you made it there safely and I will hear from you soon. I know you are going to take China by storm and do big things. Let me know what you need for your care package! And let me know when you find a place to live and let me know everything else. Basically I want updates by the hour lol. But seriously, be safe, be strong and be happy! Love you! xoxo

  2. I agree with Kelly !! UPDATES PLEASE!!! I am also willing to send a care package anytime you need something !!! I can not wait to hear about your first full day in CHINA !
