There’s no going back!!
Flights booked. Hotel booked. Tour of Sydney booked.
(Yes, we’ve treated ourselves to a nice hotel for a couple of nights before plunging into hostel backpacking life.)
Am I excited? Yes.
Am I terrified? Of course.
57 days to go!
Doing shit that scares you is a good thing.
(Sorry for swearing, Mum. But I know you’ll agree.)
Waking up everyday on the other side of the world is going to be like starting a whole new life. Far away from everything I know- my family, my home, my pets. (I know I keep mentioning my pets, they were my world.)
So, I’m 24 years old. I’ve had a job, or sometimes two, since I was 14. As a student I’d sometimes work 7 days a week. I left college when I was 18 and worked pretty much full time.
I’d just turned 19 when I moved from Surrey to Brighton and took my first ‘proper’ office job. I’ve worked in my office job ever since. It’s provided constant source of income but also stress. Stability, yet discontent.
I’ve always liked stability. But now I’m selling everything- clothes and stuff I’ve built up over the years. I’m packing in my 5 1/2 year career and leaving Brighton which has been my home for almost 6 years.
This is the best decision I’ve ever made!
For the first time in a long time I’m excited about my future. For the past 6 years I’ve merely been existing, now I feel alive and can’t wait for what lies ahead of me.
