Sunnysideup logbook... 5 November 2009, 9.04pm.
Just about 12 hours from now, my trip will begin. A 5 or 6 hour journey to that southern island. I don't know why but today , at the office, was a day of apprehension. I know its probably because I started the count-down . I can't describe it . Its everything of nothing all rolled into something that gives you the cramps.
Maybe its the 8 over years of under 'country-arrest' , not being able to travel that is , thats giving me this.
Its excitement and everything else. Its that feeling as you walk into the examination hall and you get butterflies in your stomach, and you don't know whether to throw up or go for a crap . The feeling was quite over-powering.
Anyway , thankfully, I was able to go for a long lunch break with a friend and talking but mostly listening, I guess, took away that awful feeling somehow. I didn't mention this to this friend , but instead be a listener and that really helped because my mind manage to focus on other matters. ....yes that really really helped. ( sorry if I didn't mention this moths and butterflies feeling in my tummy just now . )
Was so glad that I went home feeling better. Stop over at ASH's place to replace a door-lock .
Tonight , I started packing, and thankfully that awful feeling is gone and now replaced by excitement. ....Yes..... I'm on my way, my first step out.......after more than 8 years....and it won't be the last either.....
I hope I would be able to update my blog nightly , otherwise , it would have to be on Sunday or Monday !
Look out for it ! Yahooooooooooooooo !
This is the coach service that I would be using and the photos are from their website....for now.
