Today is the day.

Hello everyone!

It's likely that by the time most of you read this, I'll either be on the way to my new home, or will have moved in already. And that, above everything is pretty exciting. With terrifying and nerve racking coming in a close second and third.

I have lived in the same home for my entire life, much like most, if not all of my friends, I honestly don't know. It's not exactly a hot topic when engaging in conversation. However, today is the day that all of that changes. Me, and about 900 other people are leaving our current homes, to go live all on the same street. Which is kind of weird if you think about it, but at the same time, it's really cool.

No doubt by the time this post is published I'll have cried at least once and my mum several times, I can guarantee you that much. It's strange. Just sitting here now, realising that today will be the day that I move away from everything and almost everyone that I've ever known is really an usual concept. I honestly can't quite get my head around it. It's one of those days that for most of us, we know is coming at some point in our lives. And I don't know about you, but it's one of those really weird moments when you sit back and realise that that day is actually here. It really has crept up out of nowhere. It honestly feels like no time at all since I went for my first look at my university, and that was some 14 or so months ago now.

We went out for a meal on Friday night. And to quote what a fair few people have been saying, it was kind of a 'last supper' evening. I didn't cry, so that's good. But it was really nice for us all to go out, and just have a really nice evening. It's been such a long time since we've been able to, and given the occasion I guess it only made it even better.

The 'BBQ Bucket'. AKA my bucket of meat.

And oh my god. I ate so much food. I haven't eaten like that in a looooooooong time. And I'm not one for taking pictures of my food, but just look at it. Seriously.And no, I couldn't eat it all. The bucket got emptied, as did the beans and most of the chips, so to be fair, I didn't do bad at all. My brother had the same, and didn't manage as much as me. So I win.

After the meal.
I can't remember the last time I had a picture with both of my parents. It's safe to say a lot has changed since I last did though. It's weird to see how tall I am. I don't like it. Now, I know there are people taller than me, but still. My mum and dad are hardly small. I can't even fit under the shower anymore and it sucks, so I hope that I'm done growing. 6'4" is enough thanks.

I'm going to miss a lot when I'm gone, and that's really the only downside to going away. But it's that time in my life, and it's taking me a year more than intended to get here, so I don't want to wait any longer. As much as some people may wish that wasn't the case. Sadly for them, I've got to go. I'm ready to go. I'm all excited and stuff. It's been such a long time coming. Sure, it took me a long time to work out where I wanted to go, and what I wanted to do, but I made that decision and I'm happy with it, and I plan to see it through to the end. I'll give it a damn good go, and I guess that's all anybody can ask really.

Don't any of you worry. Not that I think you are, or will however. I'll be back. And sooner than you think too. I'm expecting a parcel so I'll have to come back. *Insert wink face here*

In all seriousness though, I give it two weeks before I'm dying to come back and see family and friends and what-not.

So wish me luck, god knows I'm going to need it! I'll see you all soon!

Thank you for reading.
