Adventures in Jewish Conversion: A girl from Alaska chooses to join the Chosen People

Your People will be My People; Your G-d will be My G-d
I'm Jewish now. I finished with the Beit Din an hour ago. I go to mikveh on Friday. I don't feel much different. It's kind of like the difference between Friday and Shabbat; almost imperceptible, but significant only because I've made it so.
I am now officially Jewish and beginning my new life as a Jew.
I hope it involves hiking and camping.
I also hope it continues to provide an outlet for my nerd-like tendencies.
It's been a great journey for some girl from Alaska.
