I spent the morning trying to get my address changed on my driver’s license. There was an extremely long line, so I meditated while I was waiting. I probably also got a few stares at my blank stare, but it worked to keep me from getting annoyed with my long wait. It took me over an hour to get to the front of the line. When I did, I just ended up being sent to a different line. I was surprised that I didn’t get more frustrated than I did, but I’m glad I was as calm about as I was. The poor workers there were trying to do their job. They didn’t need me getting angry with them. It wasn’t their fault there were too few of them working.
After lunch, I spent the rest of the day packing my backpacking pack. I know that sounds a little ridiculous, but there is a lot of work and thought that really goes into it. Specific items usually go in the bottom of the pack just like specific things usually go on the top. A pack’s weight needs to be evenly distributed on both sides. I also needed to be able to access certain things easily, so they had to be in a place that was easily accessible. By around 5:30pm, I started getting frustrated. I calmed myself down and re-did it a few more times and finally succeeded in packing it to the parameters I was looking for!
Now tomorrow I will just have to bring my cats to my mom’s house and pack my car. Yes, the car packing will be a different kind of issue. I think I previously explained that my trip is kind of cut in half. The first week, we’re just camping in a campground, so I bring different things. Since I won’t have to worry about weight, I can bring a lot more stuff, since we’re mostly just hanging around and often partying. It’s a matter of getting all of those things in my car in addition to my backpack, which is now all ready to go!!!!
