Two days before I leave and I still have things I need to sort out. I feel like I’m overly unorganised at times but I’m hoping that I will be able to get myself in gear and finish everything off by tonight, apart from the little errand I will have to run tomorrow to pick up some Euros.
It feels surreal to think that in 2 days I will be getting on a plane to France and I won’t be returning until mid-December. I’m excited for it but underneath I am so nervous. I don’t know if I will be able to cope with the pressure of being fluent in French when I know I’m not. I know that I’m better than I give myself credit for, as everyone keeps telling me so, but I just feel like I’m going to embarrass myself and no one will understand me. However, that’s something I can worry about later. My primary concern is that I will go over my weight limit on my suit case and I don’t know what to do about it. I need to get one of those suitcase weighing things so I know that I won’t go over. The heaviest things I have to carry though are my shoes =/ I keep trying to think of ways to cut down on the amount of shoes but I can’t think of any at all! I’m actually starting to be tempted to fill my hand luggage with shoes, but that is a bit of a daft thing to do. Plus, I need my laptop in there anyway.
It’s going to be weird that I can’t take all my films and games with me this year and I think I will miss some of them although I never actually watch all them. I’m just glad that I will be able to find the programmes I watch online so I won’t have to miss out! Also, I can’t wait to sit and watch French TV as I will have my own television in my room! I’m so excited for that! I’m hoping it will help me with understanding people and learning some actual usable French instead of essay phrases that have been drilled into my head over the past 4 years.
Really, I think I need to stop myself from being so distracted especially by procrastinating like I am currently doing by writing this. I’m hoping that I will be able to start putting up vlogs every few days or so, it would make it easier for people wanting to stay in touch with what I’m up to.
