What's REALLY going on...

Well, if things don't work out...

Arrived safely.

I'm here!
In California, USA, the World.
Just to let you all know, everything went well with the travelling and visa et cetera, et cetera...
I'm sitting here right now in mine and Jón's trailer, with Miss Janice Rae, whilst The Man and His Girl have taken his parents to see the church where the wedding will take place.
It's kinda surreal being here already. The last week or so has been a blur, but I don't mind about that. I'm just ready to have the time of my life! to follow...

Last goodbyes

So there's less than a week before I leave for Yanksville, and I'm pretty excited. I have just one more shift at Costa, but there's a whole lot of clearing-out-my-stuff-from-the-house to do.
Lately, I've been so focussed on getting things sorted for school, Chicago, Cali, and trying to tie up loose ends, that I've almost completely forgotten that in the next week or so, I'll get to see some of the most amazing people that I had the privilege of living with for a while. I can't wait to see you guys!

Back on this side of the pond, I've been meeting up with people for the last time, saying goodbyes and just hanging out with buddies that I've known since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. They're good friends and I thought I'd share a picture of them with you.

Anyways, hope to see a lot of you on the flipside.

2 weeks to go...

Ok, so I haven't blogged for a while. Big whoop, wanna fighdaboudit?
So, the real deal is that, after England beat Ecuador, and then lost to Portugal in the QFs, I lost the will to blog completely. I was so down in the dumps, I didn't eat, drink, sleep or breathe for a week.
But we've put all that behind us and we're moving on.

Here's the new news with me:
- I got my visa to the US (a 5-year student visa)
- I'm still working at Costa Coffee, earning as much money as I can.
- I hate that America is not a welfare state and that I have to pay exortionate amounts for insurance.
- 2 weeks today I leave for California and get to see two wonderful people get married to each other (as well as see a lot of other people I haven't seen in forever).
- That's all.

    Oh, I know Jón and Marisa wrote this on their blog, but for anyone going to their wedding, (or those living in the Chicago area also), if there is anything you want from England, i.e. something small or food or wuteva, then let me know and you can pay me back when I see you.
