      I'm going to Borneo, baby.

      This is actually happening. My flight and trip are paid for, I've spent obscene amounts of money on high quality backpacking clothing, and I've been pumped full of enough Typhoid, Malaria, and Japanese Encephalitis medication to last me a lifetime.

      I'm ditching school next semester to go to Malaysia to live with the orangutangs. I'm so friggin' jazzed, it isn't even fair. I'm not even entirely sure that my brain fully understands what's happening yet, but I don't give a shit.

      I'm going!

      And maybe I won't have to come back.

    Oh wow, thanks so much.
    I really appreciate your support. I've had a lot of people tell me that I'm making a huge mistake and that school is more important and that I'm going to regret it and blah blah blah, but I'm so excited, and it's nice to have people excited with me.
    So really - thanks. You guys rock.
    I love orangutangs too, Delores. They're pretty much the best :)
    And Liz, you should totally go if you want to. I hope everything works out for you too. Just go for it.
