Are you ready?
I mean it… are you seriously ready?
Okay… Here is goes.
I’M GOING TO CHINA.
I will repeat… I. AM. GOING. TO. CHINA!
Can you believe it? It is still like a dream to me, at the moment. I am STILL waiting for it to sink in, although, to be honest Mutay (my best friend) is probably more speechless than me. Haha!
I’d like to say thank you to all the well-wishers and I’d like to believe that it was your support that got me the place to China!
To think, I’ll be spending the first semester of my second year in China?! It’s quite… exciting! VERY exciting, actually. There were only 4 of us on my course who applied to go but only two of us got chosen which a bit sad because it would have been so cool if ALL us got to go but ah well. My friend and I you are going to China (I love repeating the fact that I’m going to China!) are pretty much ecstatic!
There is so much to sort out… like what I’m going to bring for my 3 months there, money for when I go there, vaccinations, what I’m going to do about accommodation here now. Argh! Now that I’ve found out that I’m going to China, I’ve had to put the search for a house on hold. Obviously, I don’t want to be paying 3 months rent for a place when I won’t even be there. I’ve phoned a couple of estate agents and they said it’s best to wait until November time and we’ll be able to get a house. I want to move in with Rob but if it’s this difficult then obviously I’ll wait until November. Unless, of course, I find a place that does less than 10 months contract then I’d be fine but I’m going to talk to my Mum and get some advice.
I also have to check if my passport is still valid, haha.
I’m currently packing for my Easter break – I’ll be home pretty much the whole of April, which is pretty exciting. I’ve missed home! I’m going to visit my old high school on Wednesday with Mutay that shall definitely bring back a lot of memories. I may even get to taunt my old teachers again! Haha. Going to meet Mutay’s boyfriend for the first time. That’s always exciting, meeting your best friend’s boyfriend. Haha.
I won’t get to see Rob much this Easter because he’s had to stay up here in Coventry because he has a lot of coursework and about 4 exams he has to revise for. Sad times. He’ll be coming up to London for a couple of days but that’s it (cry)
Anyway, if you guys could do me a big favour and help toward my China fund. Pretty please (squidge) Any amount will do, really. I’m just hoping to raise a little money to put toward anything I need for my time at the university, like books or whatever. Exciting 😀 http://bit.ly/gGsa07
