The Final Countdown

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!
