a girl getting married

When it comes to Alaska, I'm like a girl getting married. Like a wedding, it requires:

- a plan
- a dream
- a budget
- help
- a little notebook to keep organized
- patience
- excitement
- joy

I love the excitement involved in going to a new place. I'm genuinely excited about moving to Diomede -- equally excited as I was for Moscow. Once I've lived in Diomede, I will have experienced both extremes on the population spectrum -- a city of 10,000,000 and a village of 130. In Moscow I determined that I didn't want to live in a city that big; I wonder what I will determine after living in Diomede. I'm looking forward to finding out!
