T-minus (a couple of days) and T-mobile (really sucks)

So I don’t want to calculate exactly how many days I have left lol because that is overwhelming right now, but I leave Monday night so you can figure it out if you so desire. I am in denial, so I would rather not know.

REGARDLESS I leave very very soon and am by no means prepared. I was pretty productive yesterday by getting a bunch of little things done so I don’t have to worry about any of it while I’m in London. Yet, somehow more and more keeps getting added on. I had to call T-mobile today to try to make a cheaper plan for me out there or if I can decrease my texting and data when I’m in England, but as with everything T-mobile, the conversation took a half hour and after the guy promising me that he could help me out… No dice.  But I am not going into my T-mobile rant right now, I swear.I’m still not sure if I want to buy another phone when I’m over there. I can text and make phone calls through my I-pad, so I might just carry around my phone during the day, try to resist using it, and make I-pad calls at night.

Such white people problems.

Anyway, I’m sure the next couple of days are going to fly by. I’ve started saying my last goodbyes with friends and hopefully will have a get together with a few more of them on Sunday… But really, five weeks is not going to be a very long time.

My other main concern right now is about money. Travelex (basically an international debit card that converts your money and you can use pretty much anywhere) kind of ripped me off with their fees and my 1000 dollars that I put into it is worth next to nothing. My mom is going to help me out when I’m there but I’m still not sure how much I should be spending and I really feel bad taking all of her money. But if I use all of my own money, we calculated that I have the equivilant of 20 dollars a day to spend on everything. Yeah… I can buy about one meal a day and nothing else. That’s going to work out.

Just a few more days. Still doesn’t feel real. I swear this blog will be a lot more exciting when I actually leave. More pictures, less ranting.

One month and two days until departure date…

So at my boyfriend Mooselicker‘s nagging, I have created a blog to feature all of my traveling adventures. I’m studying abroad in London this summer and want to have a pretty good timeline of everything that happens. It’s mostly for friends, who I know will be interested in the trip, and family, who I refuse to add on facebook but can still find out about everything. And this way I don’t have to answer the same question 500 times, as people will (theoretically) be keeping up with the blog

Anyway, feel free to follow and keep up with my adventures. I’ll be visiting London, the Netherlands, and Paris, as well as any other place I can afford to travel to. I plan to go to concerts, festivals, and the Olympics while I’m abroad, in addition to experiencing everything possible. So yeah, that’s about it so far. The updates will be spread out until I get up to my final days in America, and then hopefully I will start updating every other day or so.

I’m currently in preparation for my trip, but I have a TON of packing to do and things to sort out. But really, I can’t wait. It’s going to be a pretty crazy summer.
