I was thinking about the flight to Tokyo recently and how weird it would be to be a regular Joe on a flight full of JETs. How long will it take the regular Joes to realize what is going on? Will it be obvious that we are all traveling together, or will the regular Joes just wonder why everyone they ask is going to be an ALT in Japan. It looks like there are a few seats left, if anyone would like to come to Japan! I wonder which seat is mine? With my luck, it will probably be over a wing! Or the seat right smack in the middle of the center group of five seats.
Well, earlier this evening I unloaded my suitcases so I could repack them. I was amazed at the volume of clothes I had jammed in those suitcases! I really didn't think I'd packed that much. Now I have to jam all the stuff back in the suitcases. I'm trying to get it done tonight - the dog is not happy with me packing in the living room. My new strategy is to pack the heavier stuff in the smaller suitcase and the lighter stuff in the bigger suitcase. This way, they will hopefully balance out to 50 pounds each. By the way, it's really hard to weigh a giant suitcase on a bathroom scale.
Time to get to work!
