It's tomorrow. I can't believe it. As usual I have left packing till the very last minute and I am stressing big time. Iv gone from a case that I could fit in to a case half it's size, I've pretty much halved the amount of clothes I'm taking and changed my carry on bag about 5 times. I have no idea how to pack for 3 months!? How are you supposed to know what you might need without taking everything plus the kitchen sink?
I'm so unbelievably excited, I have the worst butterflies and I might be sick any second but I have never been so excited about anything before! I cannot wait to meet all the amazing people I'm staying with. It's really strange that I'm meeting quite a lot of people that I've met of the internet but I'm not worried at all. I think were in a world now where it's more socially acceptable to go and meet people we befriend on the internet, especially for the younger generations. It's still weird that iv never actually met some of the people but I know pretty much everything about them from following blogs, facebook and twitter. It's just awesome that we can do things like this nowadays, makes the world seem so much smaller and less scary.
Tonight I'm going for a goodbye meal with my dad, Sarah, Max, nana and Tim. It's a little bit bitter sweet, I know that they are so happy and excited for me to go, but I'm going to miss them so much it's unreal. I get really homesick really easily, so I am so thankful for Skype and FaceTime, if I didn't have these things, I literally would cry every night haha! I know that the people who I'm staying with will make me feel so at home, and I'll have so much to do that I probably won't have time to miss people. So I'm off for dinner now, I'll be reporting tomorrow from the airport then Im going to do an hour by hour post on the plane :) HOW EXCITING!!
