Packing has managed to become a very stressful problem, just due to the fact that I have too much stuff and my suitcase is too small. I have to eliminate items of clothing in the giant pile in my living room, but that will be difficult since I am going to be gone for 5 months! But eventually I will figure it out...or find a bigger suitcase. in the next 3 days. This may end up being problematic.
