today is my birthday, and tomorrow we leave for vancouver. less excited at the moment, more sad at leaving my family behind, especially my grandparents as i know my nana is really upset to see me go. i will miss them terribly. but there are lots of good things to look forward to, and i know it's going to be an amazing year.
having packed twice and still ended up over my baggage allowance, ill just have to wing it tomorrow and hope i get let off the hook. that usual feeling of impending doom lingers, will have to quadrouple check that i've got my passport. im bound to forget something monumentally important like that...wish me luck!
