Tonight @ 8:15 pm I leave for AUSTRALIA!
I cannot believe how fast this time has come since I started planning on going, and when I first booked my flight. I still don’t believe it.
I had five of my best friends over last night, and it was so surreal when we would talk about my trip. A part of me realized that it would be the last time in a long time that we would all hang out, but it just seemed like a normal night hanging out with my girls. I think the big shock is going to be when I get to the airport tomorrow and my parents drop me off. I can already feel the tear-fest that will be coming. I am going to miss my friends and family so much!!! I have had a great last few weeks here, and could not be loved or appreciated more. I am so lucky that my friends and family not only support but encourage my dreams.
This is the craziest thing I have ever done! It is going to be a long 22 hour flight. 4 hours to Vancouver, stop over for about an hour and a half then 15 hours to Sydney. I am hoping to sleep on the plane, read, listen to music, watch movies etc. I am nervous as it is such a long flight,and of course, wouldn’t it be my luck that I get sick the day before I leave! I have developed a slight cough, and even started to lose my voice at dinner. I hope that I am not too sick or uncomfortable on the flight, and that it goes smoothly and that we arrive there safely.
The next time I will post, I will be in SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA, and about a half a day ahead Australian time!

I’ll be strong, I’ll be wrong, oh but life goes on
I’m just a girl, trying to find a place in this world”
