I am so incredibly frightened. Why must I put things off when I'm frightened? I am going to cry hard core as I pack. I know it. Too many memories not to. Laughing and crying.
I should put on Harold and Maude! Or a Harry Potter! (Faja / Da has resigned himself to the fact that most of our epic DVDs are coming with me to uni. V for Vendetta, The Princess Bride, The Fifth Element, etc.)
Please stop being a wuss. Older!kiwi will laugh at you for agonizing so much for this. You're only leaving for 2 1/2 months. Just pack some warm clothes and your favorites, your toiletries, your entertainment, and your few memories. You'll be OK, girly.
Hugs. I know for years you have thought you would be emailing updates of these days to someone. It's OK that you aren't. I still love you, and that's most important, right? Self-love is the best love. Perverse smile. Alright, I saw that grin, you! Now get to work. Turn the DVD on and boogy. Then maybe a late-night Skype for you. Smiles.
