Dear Travel Journal,
There are now 27 days until I go to South Korea! My excitement is mounting each day and so are my nerves.
In order to get some extra money, I am doing some drawings for Amy and Lee, and also I am selling my charcoal drawings to dad. Mom says that she is getting paid the day I leave and should be able to give me $200 for the trip. ....I feel really bad that my grandma is paying for so much...
Right now I am struggling with whether to use some of my next check to get playstation 2 or not. I bought DDR so that I could exercise and lose weight before I go to Korea. But, I really shouldn't use my money for that I guess... Maybe if that is all I spend anymore. I just really want to look good and feel comfortable with my body before I go.
All of my friends want me to buy them stuff while I am gone. I have a lot of people to buy for and no clue what to get them or how to afford everything. I guess that really is my biggest worry... money.
Jee Soo says that we will go to a water park so I want to look good in a swim suit... I wish there was something I could do!!!
One thing I want to buy for my trip is a DVD recorder so I can record my whole trip! That would be really cool. Also then I won't have to worry about forgetting and I can show my friends everything. Also I hope I remember and have time to write in this everyday as well so I have everything documented in a cute travel journal. I kind of wish I would have a cell phone when I go but it is too expensive. Jee Soo says I won't need one.
I really just can't wait to be in a huge city and see all the big buildings, lights, screens and of course people. I can't imagine how excited I will be on the plane!
I am kind of scared and am very sad about leaving my cat home for three weeks. I am going to miss him so much and I hope that nothing happens to him and that he doesn't forget me!
I started practicing my Korean again and luckily I still remembered most of it. I have less than a month to study so I really need to work hard.
All of my worries are coming up these days. I am really hoping that my trip will be all I have made it out to be!
