why is everyone leaving!?

It is apparent that people I know are travelling overseas or interstate..... tomorrow Tim's mum and sister will be leaving for the Philippines, as well as my parents the following weeks- ish. My family and relatives are going on a family getaway over the Easter break, while I sit at home and try and do my Uni assessments.... boooo! im just rambling because im jealous... I am procrastinating my uni work, which is a big no no! Alas I will be going to Queensland in a few weeks too, so the grass is looking greener, but I have to kick start some of my unfortunate essays for various subjects..... booo!
Man I want to go back to the Philippines!!!! I miss it!!!! but hopefully my sister and I will be able to make it next year!

Holidays are always good, your in that carefree mode. You dont stress about jack sh*t. I wish everyday was a damn holiday, if I had the $$$$ i'll be on the 1st plane out of Australia. but unfortunately I was not born with a trust fund, thus I have to work hard for the money just like everyone else.
It may sound very strange, but I like being a bit of a tourist...ahhaaahhaaa... It forces you out of your comfort zone. I know at times I have issues socialising with new people, I sometimes get very guarded. I think travelling, further emphasises your responsibility and independency (it may also challenge your belief systems) & at times forces you to be more out there, coz being shy and timid is just not going to cut it; especially when your in a country where their first language is not English. The world is massive and there are so many countries/ cultures that I want to experience. Life can be very mundane and routine, there is more to life than just work or study, we only live this life once. So why not see the world before our time is up....

As Tennessee Williams states " Make voyages! Attempt them, there's nothing else"
