Hello, I’m typing this from somewhere over Utah? Or Arizona? I’m not sure, but it looks sandy down there. This time tomorrow, I’ll be in Australia. I packed up and I’m gone for the year--maybe forever? I don’t know if things will work out over there. I don’t know if I’ll be okay. I’m leaving behind my family and friends to embark on something of my own. I applied for a working visa to make some cash while I’m living there. I spent last night packing for 4 seasons for at least the next 8 months. Its funny that most of my life can fit in two suitcases. This is going to be an interesting adventure. I have a few plans for what I want to do, but at the same time, I don’t have a plan at all. I decided two weeks ago I was jumping on a plane and giving it a shot. How do I feel right now? I’m nervous. I’m excited. I’m anxious. I’m scared. But then, I get really excited all the new possibilities.
It was really hard leaving my best friends behind. I honestly have a small group of people I see and hang out with all the time. It’ll be weird being on my own for a bit, but if I learned anything in Belize, it’s the frequency at which you meet people. Friends are waiting at every corner to be made.
I’m going to really miss my family. I wish we left on better terms. I guess sometimes, you need space. Hopefully time fixes all that needs to be fixed.
I’m not sure what I’m doing with school right now. I don’t know what I want from that anymore. I know that I want to finish school, I just want to figure some things out. Like, I want to help people. I have a pretty good idea about how I want the next couple years of my scholarly life to go. But, I’m young now, so why not make a few mistakes and take a few chances and enjoy whatever life’s gonna toss my way?
Maybe down under will be a good thing. Maybe down under will be life changing.
I’ll keep you posted. What else can I do from here?
Peace and Love <3
