I want to thank you all for all the advice and opinion you lot have given me to ponder over about the trip vs car issue. Thank you for all the comments and emails. You made me feel like a beauty Queen winner. (I often think of myself in drag. I certainly got the legs for it)
Trust me I spent many hours thinking about which direction to take and my head is hurting. Not from thinking but from getting smack round the head from my bro Lee because he thought it would be funny. Yea hilarious I am splinting my side with laugher from him almost splitting my head and now I got to cane his ass. (Ninja style)
Anyway back to the main topic. I had a long discussion with dad about what the best thing was to do and what he thought. I was expecting dad to be all dominating and controlling like a drill sergeant. Instead he was supportive and open. (I really got to stop expecting the worst from my dad)
He told me he thought I should go on the trip. He said after all I being through and the ups and down I deserve a break. (I guess he right) He said great memories will last a lot longer than any car. He said it would be good to have a car but nothing beats being around your friends and having the time of your life. He said I will learn more about myself and life than I ever will with a car. (I’m starting to get the feeling dad wants me out the house)
Well nearly everyone thinks I should take the trip including my mum dad and bros. So you know what. I made up my mind. I am getting the car (joke)
No I am going to do the trip. I just like the idea of having my buddies sharing my first moment of true freedom. However it is not all plain sailing. (Is sailing ever plain?)
I got to get the go ahead for the docs and make sure I am up to the trip. If not I won’t get any insurance and I will not be able to go (cue tear)
I am worried if I have an episode while on the trip but not enough to stop me from going.
So it is bye bye to my car. I am not really that sad because as most of you said I will be able to get one later prob not as grand though. (Prob a Lada)
Now the trip is not all site seeing. We will be working with Unicef and volunteering our time to work in some of the orphanage around Europe. We also be spending our time working and seeing some of the various projects. In turkey we are going to help with some school classes with teaching English and in Germany we will be helping out with a music project. We got other things plan but nothing confirm yet. As they come in I let you know.
I am looking forward to spending 8 months with 6 of my best friends. Toby being one of them. Jason not coming as he starts work in October but he cool with the whole thing and thinks I should be going. (By the way Lee said hi. He has just come out the shower and is waving is wigwam at me.)
So I think this is going to be a life changing trip so I am looking forward to it and I think I made the right decision. (I just hope I don’t die on the journey cause that really would piss me off)
Have not seeing Jamie for a while. He seems to be avoiding me. What have I done now? I’m beginning to think he is a lost cause but I won’t give up on him. Anyone who is my friend is a friend for life no matter what happens. It times like these when you need your friends the most.
I am going into hospital on Wednesday for a check up so I won’t be around for a few days. I had an x ray on Friday and they ask me to come back in. Nothing to worry about. Just more drugs to juice me up. I hope I turn out stoned like these guys.
While I’m away Lee is going to take over my blogs and keep you informed of whats whats and what I am doing. If I can I will do it myself and hopefully post pictures and videos.. Thinking about getting a twitter page but still not convince by it.(what do u think?) I don’t what technology to rule my life and become a robot.
Anyway I'm off to scratch my nob
