i actually think i'm about halfway done. which isn't bad considering i wanted to be completely done by monday night; and i plan to spend all day packing today since my housemates are away until tomorrow afternoon. i've been spending nights going out with friends and saying goodbyes, but it doesn't feel real that i'm actually leaving for good this time. sarah and i were talking about the possibility of traveling overseas together sometime, and i really do have faith that i will see many of these again. charlotte once gave me a quote that said something like "those who are meant to meet again will, and they will be ready for it", and i believe that. everything happens for a reason, right?
sarah gave me this gorgeous card and in it she wrote thankyou for being so kind and understanding, the world needs more people like you, and i realise that maybe i wasn't so alone up here in queensland as i first thought. it doesn't mean that i regret my decision because i don't; but i am leaving behind much more that i anticipated. i'm always surprised when i find out how much people really do care sometimes. like i always see myself as being more invisible than i really am; but i've always been surrounded by people who care just so, so much. and it's a nice realisation.
i ate a meal with chopsticks last night, for the first time ever. i brought "The Lovely Bones" to read on the way back to adelaide, and i made a promise to myself to keep a travel journal along the way. i've just about finished downloading all my songs for my cds, i have pat's video card to rent some movies, and this time next week, i'll be home again. maybe i'll pack 2 more boxes and start on my suitcase, and then do something else for the rest of the day. call me antisocial, but i really do love having the house to myself all day.
outlook express hates my hotmail account, but i'm not sure if the problem is with hotmail, or outlook. ugh.
