Pre trip Inspection

A journal entry from: Getting Ready for South East Asia

Since this is my first trip alone I'm going to meticulously record my planning process to look back on it with fondness.
    
I'm sitting here in my hovel of a basement suite in Kitsilano, Vancouver BC. Its actually not that much of a hovel, but i'm saying that for dramatic effect.
  Ayako and i have been talking about how much money we're bringing with us. we've decided on like ---> 700 dollars a month. With that we should be able to live like royalty. now its save up and go!
    THIS IS OFFICIALLY MY GOAL SETTING SENTENCE. WELL NOT THIS ONE, OR I MEAN THESE LAST TWO, BUT THE NEXT ONE. FUCK IT. THIS IS MY GOAL SETTING PARAGRAPH. I WILL SAVE UP 8000 DOLLARS TO GO ON THIS TRIP IN EARLY SEPTEMBER> I WILL DO THIS BY FIREFIGHTING THIS SUMMER!!
   i know its more than i need but i have some "extra expenditures" that are very important happening around dec 30th next year, and i want it to be a really special day.  Money helps make things special. Wow. did i really just say that?

ok. I'll fill in anyone who's interested on my progress after my first month of firefighting.

what happened to the mad flow that used to grace your noggin? Anyways this extra expenditure isn't what I think it is, is it? Cause then I'm gonna have to go to SE Asia. Good thing suits are cheap there.
