As I mentioned yesterday, I have big news to share.
Operation “move to Roatan at the end of September 2012 and become a dive instructor” is no longer happening.
There is a good reason and a long story behind this, but at the moment I’m spending half my time panicking about leaving nearly two full months earlier than planned…and the other half completely giddy at the thought of being a dive instructor in November, living in the Bay Islands and having ridiculous adventures.
I have to completely overhaul my budget and suddenly have a four-page list of things that need to be done NOW. I am stressed and tired. My poor mother has been getting a non-stop tirade of phone calls and emails from me on the edge of hysteria about some new crisis that’s popped up that I hadn’t thought of. I have a lot I still have to figure out. My friends are telling me I’m crazy (and brave…thank you Jenna!) and it all feels a little unreal. However, as my mom and Susan Jeffers say, feel the fear and do it anyway!
But I’m going to Roatan to dive and live and just go do this thing that I’ve been talking about since February. And I’m going so, so soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW!! I am majorly jealous of you right now. I don't ever want to leave this place and you are moving here!
I felt that way the first time I was there too! I'm so glad that things moved in the right direction for me to go back there and pursue this. It's been crazy so far!
How exciting! You are definitely NOT crazy! The crazy thing to do would be to work your life away at something you don't enjoy… Right?
You are definitely right Jill! Waking up every day and hating what I do is crazy. Walking away from that to take a risk and live in Honduras is a little crazy too, but at least I'm giving it a go than wishing about it for the rest of my life.
ACK! I didn't know you'd bought your ticket!! Congrats! That is so fast, summer is going to fly by… and then you'll be off living your adventures 🙂 Good Luck with everything you're doing until then!
I know, it's so fast! So scary but exciting. I actually hope it goes by slowly – I have SO much to do. But yes, very soon I will be off on the adventure of a lifetime and it's pretty awesome knowing the exact day so I can count down 🙂
