Stomach flips

It's two full days to go til my flight, and I've barely packed anything. I was supposed to pack today, but I got side tracked by the various meetups with different groups of friends. It's like I'm never coming back.

So interesting how we all take leaving so seriously, here in Singapore where going on exchange (for a mere 5 months - think about it) or actual overseas study usually draws a small knot of friends and family to the airport. Compared to the US where it's normal and expected, sort of, to go away to college at what, 17?

I mean, yeah, it's only 5 months, but I'm still freaking out about how I won't see my family and friends for pretty much 5 whole months. And how I'm gonna have to survive on my own and -gasp- make new friends. And also whether I've brought enough food, clothes, toiletries, entertainment, sporting equipment, medicine, emergency number lists, money etc.

Okay that's part of life, part of growing up.

Goodnight, need to collect my visa tomorrow. Pray that I'll pack whatever needs to be packed.
