*ducks from flying tomatoes*
I’m sorry! Well, kind of — I mean, well yeah, I suppose that I should say sorry because I’ve been away for how long now *doesn’t bother to check the date* and now I’m just going to swagger back into your lives as if nothing has happened. Ha. It’ll be 16 days exactly until be off to the land of China. Oh my God.
What have I been up to this summer holiday, you may ask? Apart from stressing that I may have to pay extra for my trip to China or panicking over what the hell I’m going to bring with me for a 4 and half month. Seriously, if you guys could help me. I mean, it’d be so much easier if I was just going away to university back here in England but NO, it’s in China and I’m only allowed a certain amount of baggage.
2 people dropped out from the trip which I think is absolutely ridiculous because there is actually no reason to drop out. I mean, at first, I was having doubts because the lady in charge of keeping us informed was saying different prices for the trip and everybody was in uproar because we were informed we only had to pay £150 and then suddenly an extra £200/300/400 payment was being thrown in our direction. Luckily, we only had to pay £50 extra which brought the total price to £200 which is still okay. So, I don’t know why those to dropped out. Ah well, they’re the ones missing out on a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The fact that I’ll be away for 4 and half months from my family… friends… Rob is hitting me hard now. I am scared shitless. I’m excited, yes but I scared for what China will bring me. Who knows what will happen once we get out there. Essentially we’ll be on our own, 8 students on a study placement in China and we’ll only have someone from Coventry to see us at the airport when we arrive and then bam, we’re on our own. I’ll be the youngest out of all of them so I am going to make sure that they look after me.
Mutay got her A2 results yesterday. It was a very hectic day, that’s for sure. She didn’t get into Sussex (which was her first choice) because they didn’t have her missing result from Psychology and when they did they could’ get her in because they were oversubscribed, she got a place in Anglia Ruskin and at the moment she’s trying to get a place in Coventry. OMG, imagine both of us at Coventry. Good lord, help us. It’ll be fun, though, that’s for sure. Fingers crossed that she gets in!
It’s my birthday on Sunday. I will be 19. Don’t you think 19 is such an awkward age? It’s like the nowhere stage between teen and adult. Rob’s birthday was last Saturday — it’s 21 now. Officially an adult, an old man, yadda yadda. We went for a birthday lunch with his family on Wednesday which was sweet and he blew out his candles. N’aww. I’m not too excited for my birthday but I suppose as you get older you don’t get too excited about it, do you? I just want money, so I can save for my holiday next year.
I may set up a travel blog for when I go China or just keep this one, I’m not sure. Help me pack?
