The traveling has begun!

After much evaluation, consideration, and sacrifice, I've packed everything I'll be taking to China into one suitcase and one violin case. The list:
A week's worth of clothes, including eight T-shirts, seven button-ups, two pairs of pants*, and four ties.
Toothbrush, floss, deodorant, hand sanitizer, nail clippers.
Three Chinese textbooks, one laptop computer, a few pens.
Joyce's Dubliners and Dostoevsky's The Posessed**.
Flashlight and duct tape
Passport and other necessary papers
Probably a couple of other things I just can't remember off the top of my head. It's a pretty tightly packed suitcase.
- It turns out I only own two pairs of pants without holes in them, and my mom wouldn't let me take the rest.
- *The Posessed is a huge book, so I couldn't actually fit it in the suitcase. I'm just carrying it around.
Spent the day getting packed and saying goodbye to family and friends, now I'm sitting in a hotel in San Carlos, about to go to bed so I can get up early for my flight to Vancouver. When next you hear from me I'll be in Beijing!
