I don't really know how to start this. In about 12 hours i'll be leaving Palmerston North. I've done nearly everything i need to: Said my goodbyes, played an awesome last show with the guys I've spent the last 5 years of my life making music with, sung for the last time with the choir that made me stop thinking choral music was gay, worked my last shift and signed out of the school that for better or worse has had me as a pupil for the last 5 years. And i feel numb about it all. The reason i don't feel incredibly sad is because none of it seems real. It hasn't sunk in yet that i'll be spending the next year in Italy speaking nothing but Italian surrounded by only new faces. But it'll hit me sooner or later. I want to thank all my family and friends who helped me fund raise or made donations i really appreciate it and i promise not to waste it. I can't thank you enough.
I'd better get to bed i have a big year ahead of me. I'll try to update this about every two weeks no promises though. I love you all.
Ciao a tutti
