I can't describe how I"m feeling right now. There's anticipation, some excitement - just a tinge of it, and a general feeling of "bring it on."
I must admit to last week having a freak-out about the whole kit and kaboodle. Everyone other than my parents, brother and Liam have said to me how they could never do it, wouldn't dream of going to a foreign country alone, and aren't you scared something might happen, etc. So I started to doubt myself, but I managed to talk myself out of it (okay, I cracked open a beer at 1030am and chainsmoked for an hour) and now I'm fine. I just want to get over there. I want to find out what I capable of, and who I am when I'm in unfamiliar circumstances.
seachanges I'll give you a call most likely on the 29th after I've doublechecked my flight details. I've written down all the time zones I need to remember, so I won't ring at an odd hour. And anything you have planned will be fantastic. You'll be the first person I catch up with in person, so be prepared for an excited Australian talking. People say we Australians talk fast, so don't be afraid to tell me to take a breath *g*
I'll try to write in here so you guys know I"m still alive, but i don't know how often. So I"ll catch you guys around. I'd say wish me luck, but I won't need it.
