The one where I didn't pack anything

It's roughly 1am on Thursday Morning. Just a little over a day away until I get in the car and drive to Nashville! Today was very productive in the sense that I was always doing something, not so productive in the packing sense. If only being mentally prepared counted as much as being physically packed. If that were the case, I'd be all set! I even skipped the premier of So You Think You Can Dance and Glee in an attempt to be responsible and pack. What did I do instead? Talked to my friend Emily on the phone and Ali on Facebook chat. And I wouldn't have it any other way, but still, my stuff isn't packing itself. I thought maybe, just maybe, my stuff would come to life like in "Beauty and the Beast" and totally pack itself (while singing and dancing no less) but I was sadly mistaken.

On the upside, I closed my bank account and opened a new one that has branches in Nashville! I felt like a shiny new penny when I told the bank teller I had just graduated (she didn't need to know that I spent a year in Disney World) and am off to Nashville to pursue my dreams! She was all "Good luck!" and smiled. That's when I knew I made the right choice in banks...even if she was laughing at my
naivete as I walked away, but she seemed sincere enough.

I also happened to score many fun CDs from the library today including Matchbox Twenty, Needtobreathe, Daughtry and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Greatest Hits. That, my friends, is the start of an awesome road trip mix. Daughtry even has a song called "Tennessee Line".... which actually has nothing to do with my experience.... but made me smile none the less. My feelings about moving can most adequately be summed up by "Ready, Set, Don't Go"

Ironically enough, the song is about leaving Nashville to go to LA. But Nashville IS my LA, at least for now. Today I received the BEST tweet ever that made me smile. Rev Run said "
soo many ppl want to be in movies, but aint even start to save for a plane ticket to hollywood yet... im just sayin." I think I was watching a Disney Channel Original Movie (Princess Projection Program, if you must know) when I realized that if I want to achieve my dreams, I have to be in a location that is conducive to them.

On a different
note. I had to say goodbye to my little brothers and it was not easy. I love those little guys and wish we were closer in age so I could grow up with them. I actually think my little brother Luke is more wise than I am a lot of times. He makes me tear up when I see how selfless he is. They were trying on my sunglasses and mastered the "look away and don't smile" pose without me even telling them! Love them.Anyways, I am off to get some sleep so I can pack all day tomorrow and have a fun night out with friends. Just remember, it's not goodbye, it's see you later and MOST definitely text/tweet/or facebook you later ;) Thanks for reading. -Allie
