So i'm currently sitting on a plane wondering what on earth got me here. Two days ago I was running around Singleton Park at Summer Ball with a chair on my head.. Now i'm on a plane and have just passed over Kilamanjaro. Serious wtf.
Thinking back I know why i'm here. I've just finished my first year at uni and it's been good and bad. I split with my long term boyfriend, rebounded a few times, met some amazing people and met some not so amazing people. I've changed alot this year and for the better. I'm so glad to be living in Swansea and away from the chaotic lifestyle I was living in Birmingham. It definitely was doing no good for me and Swansea is definitely the more normal life I want.
So that's why i'm on this plane. Literally one evening I decided I wanted to do something different and get away. I was quite annoyed with everything going on and for some reason booked a non refundable flight to Uganda meaning I either waste £400 or plan a trip. I think I want to prove to myself I can cope as well. Being ill for so long before uni really knocked my confidence because I needed alot of care. Yes i'm fine now and living in Swansea but this is the next step. My early retirement, Eat, pray, love or something like that.
I'm looking forward to 4 weeks with totally new people who I won't ever see again in places I will probably never see again. I am completely unprepared for this however. I was packing only 9 hours ago, desperately drying my clothes in time to be packed and rushing out the door for the airport (Right after I exchange my bikini at Debenhams) . Standardly not prepared as usual. I don't even know my itineary and I still only have english money as I didn't bother to sort that out at home. I like being laid back however. Makes life easier..maybe.. :)
