Disconnected

Well, I have deactivated Facebook for a few hours and already I feel very disconnected from the world. Its weird. Also the fact that I've packed my laptop and everything else but a few clothes and a camera away, and will not be seeing it for two months.

I'm typing this on my phone right now, and will definitely do updates when there is wifi and internet cafes.

Its hard to believe that I'm down to my last few hours in Australia, I almost don't want to go to sleep, so I can enjoy it for what it is worth.

I have met so many incredible people here, both locals and expats, and for that experience to occur makes me a really fortunate person.

I guess this is the part they don't tell you about as an exchange student, you will eventually have to say goodbye to everyone you meet. It does teach you the value of friendship and time together though.

Tonight was my last night here, and of course I spent it at a house party, completely sober, doing ridiculous things (is there any other way?). It was heaps of fun and got some good memories.

I fly to Bali tomorrow at 1, so we're getting to the airport a little earlier. Then its a 4 hour flight to Denpasar, and a cab ride to Kuta and our hotel. I'm not sure I'm ready for the language barrier, but you learn better by immersion anyways.

Anyways, I've got some postcards to send before I fall asleep, so for now, take life one step at a time, but don't forget to leap forward every now and again.
