I leave in little over 4 days and I am completely calm about it. I can’t help to think that something is not right. Shouldn’t I be freaking out about this? I’m leaving home for 6 months yet I’m acting like it’s only for a weekend. Surely there’s some catch to studying abroad and not having any doubts?
Nonetheless the past week has been the best week I’ve had all year. Ever since getting my job last October I was in hopes of being accepted to study abroad so I saved up essentially all my earnings (Christmas took out a chunk of that). Then when I got the confirmation sometime in April/May I went into “heavy” saving mode. This consisted of essentially never going out unless I had to, spending money on only myki, fuel, food (if that), and phone bill.
I remember looking at my bank account in May and going “yeah, I don’t think I have enough money” and was seriously considering taking out a bank loan but since I’ve hit my threshold last week I’ve had all this spending money and actually going out and enjoying life. Not going to lie, it’s pretty sweet.
Now comes the exciting part about what to go and explore when in Europe. It’s just my luck that the FIBA Basketball World cup is being held in Spain this year. I can totally go watch the USA play but I’m having doubts as the seats wouldn’t be that great. Also watching an Arsenal game in the U.K would be sweet as but damn them tickets are expensive.
I’ve gone out every day for the past week and will continue to go out up until I leave Australia. I guess this is the life I would be living if I had money to spend. Oh the joys of life.
