It is early Christmas morning 2008.

Merry Christmas!

I'm pretty sure that anyone who would ever read this blog knows the number one reason that I am so pumped for my trip to Australia (I'm leaving in exactly 20 days!)...

Cate Taylor (the young lady pictured next to me above).

My girlfriend of nearly four years and I will finally be reunited after being apart since late June. Perhaps this is why I am still awake at 1:30am on Christmas morning; hoping that she might wake up early and give me a call, haha.

Soon our distance will be measured in minutes, not hours; in suburbs instead of time zones; train stops instead of plane layovers... you get the picture. I should probably get some sleep, but it's hard when you are this ready to make such a big change, haha. I want to start packing right now! But, I will restrain myself.
