Adding it all up
Jan 26, 2006
Hey all. I recently returned from Israel, where I went to prepare for my immigration to there this summer. It helped me recover from a rather difficult semester, and right now, things are looking pretty good. The trip to Israel, short though it was, was absolutely crammed with activity. For now, I don't have any poignant reflections or interesting insights (at least not that I'm going to type up right now), so I hope you're satisified with this:

By the numbers:

  • Days spent in Israel: 19

  • Job interviews: 5

  • Jobs offered: 1

  • Jobs occepted: 5

  • Meals eaten out: 35+

  • Distance covered in cabs or busses: 700+ km

  • Distance walked: 15+ km

  • Amount overspent: $200-$300

  • Books purchased: 8

  • Books read: 4

  • Books lost: 1

  • Passports lost: 1

  • Trips to the US Embassy in Israel: 2

  • Passports replaced: 1

  • Shorelines encountered: 1

  • Shorelines pondered: 1

  • Engagement parties attended: 2

  • Plays viewed: 1

  • SMS's sent: 136

  • SMS's received: 118

  • Time spent on phone: 6+ hours

  • Times I unexpectedly ended up on the side of the highway: 2

  • Times I was asked by a stranger if I was a Kohein: 2

  • Times I was asked by a stranger to bless him: 1

  • Times I was asked why I'm moving to Israel: 3+

  • Amount of time until I return to Israel, for good: 6-7 months

  • Amount I'll miss everyone I'll leave behind in the US: immesurable

  • Amount I'll miss my parents, my brother, and my sister: more than that.


Till next time, campers.
