Welcome to my Australia blog!
I have never had a blog before, but I decided that this would be a good time to start one. I wanted to start a blog that would let my family and friends know all about my Australian shenanigans! I am going to be spending the semester in Brisbane, studying at QUT, or Queensland University of Technology. I am so excited! I will be leaving on Saturday, July 6. ONLY 5 MORE DAYS!! I have wanted to go to Australia for a long time now, and for many reasons, including the accents! My family is all worried that I am going to come back married! (I’m not going to make any promises!)
One of the hardest parts about going to Australia, other than leaving my family and friends for a semester, is packing. It is a daily struggle! There is so much debate as to whether I really need that cute top that only goes with that one pair of shorts, or whether or not I need to take my favorite books! It is so difficult. Eventually, after a trashed room and hours of weighing, adjusting, and reweighing my luggage, I finally finished packing!
I am actually really impressed with how well I managed to pack! I packed everything in one large suitcase, a carry-on, and my backpack. Yay! It is going to be weird though! I am leaving Alabama in July with 90 degree temperatures and I will be arriving in Australia in July, but it will be their winter! The highs are supposed to be in the 50s and 60s when I get there! It is going to be a nice change!
Well I need to go finish packing and hanging out with my wonderful family!
See you soon!
