Hello,
i'm just starting to realise im going to Australia in 18 days for a year and its makin me think now i dont know wether this is due to being extremmely hungover/still half cut or wether i am actually pretty worried probably the music im listening to isnt helping far too chilled but would like to know has anyone else felt like this as im headin off on my own aswell in 18 days, i know i will love every minute of it but has anyone else just felt "sh*t this is actually quit big thing to do"

any views would be much appreciated thanks :) Ant

heya.
I've had my moments of freaking out about the fact that I'm going to Sydney in 12days for a year. Espically after going out and getting hammered with my friends and thinking that I am leaving everything and everyone I love behind.
But think of all the new people you'll meet and what an amazing adventure we all will have. Your life in the UK will still be the same when you return. You'll just have great tan and a life time of stories to tell.

I hope you have a brilliant time and if your around Sydney during winter time and fancy a beer or five send me an e mail or something

Regards,
Jazzbrit

I personally go through that all the time! I'm leaving my job of 2 years and all my friends/family that I've never been apart from for more than two weeks - tops! - behind. Sure, sometimes I get freaked out, but it'd never be enough to discourage me from going. Everyday I cross a day off my calendar and even though I might be scared shitless at times, my excitement definitely outweighs any of my doubts :D

Hey guys,
I'm taking off for Sydney in about 8 days. I'm so excited but I'm getting a little nervous too. It's nice to know that there are other people in the same boat as me.
thanks for this thread, it's making me feel better
have fun in australia
