Somehow, the prospect of moving away for a year really changes your perspective on the things you usually take for granted. In particular, lately I’ve been thinking a lot in terms of lasts… The last time I’ll be strolling down Sydney’s familiar streets. The last time I’ll have mum’s cooking for a year. The last time I’ll be able to see my friends without an ocean separating us.

So with one more day before I leave for Japan, I’m afraid this is all I have to share with you! The past month has been a flurry of meetings, visa applications, and catching up with as many people as is humanly possible. Not to mention there’s the monstrous task of packing my life into a suitcase, which I’ve been putting off. It’s been pretty hectic to say the least! Anyway, I think it’s finally sinking in that I’m leaving, which is weird. At this point, I’ve done so much to prepare that all I have left to do is hope for the best.

It goes without saying but Instagram is my go-to social media, so follow me here if you’re interested in the shenanigans I get up to! Let’s be real though, it’s mainly gonna be photos of all the food I’ll be gorging on. Bye and I’ll see you all on the other side!
