Hello! I am going to try this "Travel Blog" thing that everyone has been telling me to do, but I might need a few reminders to keep updating this thing if I don't do it for a while. I am currently sitting at my gate in LAX (its exactly 7:03pm in California) and I have about three more hours until my flight to Sydney, Australia takes off. I was freaking out this morning when I woke up at 6am full of energy like a three year old. My dad made me bacon and eggs and then I went right back to sleep. When I woke up again at 10am (like a regular person) I was so ready to go! My heart was racing the whole time we were driving the two hours it takes to get to LAX. My heart rate did not decide to finally steady itself until after I got through security (a whole three hours after we arrived at the airport). I am now very calm and kind of hungry waiting for my flight.

This has been my dream trip for I want to say about 12 years. I was a massive Steve Irwin fan and, before he died, meeting him was my ultimate dream. After he died, my desire to travel to Australia only got stronger. The animals, culture, and basically everything about the continent facinate me beyond belief. I feel so lucky to not only be traveling to Australia but to spend 4 months there is beyond anything that I could ask for. I will be living at the University of Wollongong in Wollongong Australia. Wollongong is a beach town nestled between a the Illawarra Escarpment and the Pacific Ocean on the Eatern coast of Australia. While there I will be studying Australian culutre and Child Development. I am stoked to start this journey and to begin meeting new people and making memories!

Thank you all once again for all of your constant love and support!
