To pack or not to pack? That is the question!

There has been a request for another post, who knew how interesting my life is, BEFORE I even leave for Vietnam? Well now the countdown really is on, as my life is sitting in little boxes in the U-Haul storage and I am sitting on my blow up air mattress with a suitcase in the corner of my room. I'm leaving tomorrow from Fredericton, driving home in my little Green Hornet with the infamous Alex Larsen snoring away in the passenger seat, his "Danielle-hating" sideburns glistening in all their glory. (They are grown to spite me because I do not appreciate they hairy messes that protrude from the side of his face).
It's weird thinking that in less than 5 days, I will be on a plane heading towards Vietnam. My placement spot is called Tam Ky, which was a surprise for all of us Renaissance College Students who assumed we were heading towards the capital, Da Nang. I don't know much about the place, (Wikipedia is equally un-knowledgeable) except the fact that we are no longer a stone's throw from the beach. On the bright side, there may be gecko's running around our hallways, and I may be able to catch one and ask it for some car insurance. Now that's something to look forward to.
So I'm packing, asking my sister too many questions about hair dye, makeup, and what simple color palate I should stick with so that I can have the maximum amount of outfits with the minimum items of clothings (I thought this was quite important but apparently "babe, it's vietnam. not milan," whatever that means). I'm off to finish packing alone, assuring myself that I can run up and down the stairs at least 3 times with my bags to guarantee that I am not over packing.
