- New, stable job. No, really. This must happen. If it does not happen by June 1, then the trip is off. I'm serious. No more starting a new job then jetting off on a trip. And no more trips with unstable work/fiscal situations. It puts an unpleasant sour note on the trip.
- New quad-band cell phone. I want this no later than Nov. 1. This will make the (hopefully not) inevitable flight delays a lot less stressful, since that way I can get my messages directly, rather than having to wake my roommates up at 4 AM in order to find where in the world (literally) my travelling companions are.
There are a couple of other things, but I can't remember what they are at the moment. The first things on my mind are getting the employment situation nailed down, and getting a cell phone that will work pretty much everywhere in the world. (Except, annoyingly, Japan.)
