Don't Call Me Kevie

My bags are packed/ I'm already late...
My trip
So yeah, it's almost time for me to go to the airport to fly to the city. I'll be spending two days with my Aunt and to see my cousin's new baby daughter, and then....and then I'm off into the wide blue yonder.

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.

And yeah, I know exactly what you're feeling. I drove from one side of this country to the other all by my lonesome. Hardest thing I ever did. It was also one of the most liberating. I'm a better and stronger person for having done it, and for proving to myself that I could do it.

That's exactly it. Ya gotta do these things every now and then, so you don't become a small person. I"m sure I"ll be fine - it's amazing already how many people have given me numbers of people to call in places, and have hooked me up with people. It's like even though I'm going alone, and going with friends.

You know what I'm most excited about at the moment? Halloween. I'm gonna freak the kids out with how excited I am. They'll be running from your door in fear of me *g*

Talk to you soon!
