I dreamed I was missing, You were so scared, But no one would listen, Cause no one else cared…
Over a surprisingly large amount of posts (I checked and was really shocked!) I have made a few confessions…well it is time for another one. Last night I finally gave in to what I can basically call “badgering at its best” from some friends. I watched Twilight. I had little urge to read the book, I don’t read much fiction, but I thought a 2 hour film could at least give me something to do last night instead of studying. Now the confession is not that I watched Twilight, but that I liked it. Although it is almost like ‘write by numbers a story for teenage girls’ and I had picked up on most of the story/ending from various sources, I liked it. I found myself involved in it…and that sucks 😛 haha
Anyway, what else have I done in the last day? Well, my study is going well (although I now know more about crime prevention than is necessary for anybody to know!) and I have also done some more trip planning. As all my accommodation, flights and trains are booked I just had to do a few last things. I, today, applied for the online USA visa waiver program which took all of 5 minutes and as long as you aren’t a terrorist or a Nazi you should be fine. The only question I had was whether to use my Australian or British passport. I am travelling with a Brit so I thought it might be easier for consistency if I used my British passport but as I am an Australian resident and my accent should still be Australian enough to be picked up by a yank border official I decided to go with Australian.Also, on my Australian passport I have a shaved head which would match me now more than the curly locks of British Citizen Simon Casinader. I am just trying to minimise all the possible problems. The other things I did was do a rough plan of things I want to do in Copenhagen and Bruges (my two pre-USA stops)…they will be some pretty full on 7 days. Actually it will be a pretty full on 2 months haha
One thing I’ve noticed though is that it is really hard trying to adjust my sleeping patterns to a more normal existence. With all the going out and late night chatting with people I have somehow set my body clock that going to sleep at 1am is the earliest I can sleep. With a 9am exam on Friday and a 4:30am wake up on Saturday, I am desperately trying to change that. It doesn’t help though that it is only once my head touches that pillow that I start to think about how little I have left in Leeds.
Just 6 sleeps to go
