I'm covered.

For the past month or so I've been pondering on insurance choices. I came to find that a 13month cover was very rare, unless you came back to your home country before the cover expires (hardly useful to me!).
I ended up going wih World Nomads as they were nice and flexible. They also let you choose the value of high cost items. Plus I used a promocode and got about $95 off the price, yay! :)
I'm hoping it'll all be ok...

Uni has been crazy lately as I've had so many essays due, but now that they are handed in (with a minor mishap where I had a panic attack when I realised I'd handed the wrong essay in for one subject!) I only have 2 tests and an exam left.

Which is much easier to handle.

The weather here is horrible. Wet and rainy and cold! Although its not very nice, hearing that its on average 30degrees C in Florida, makes me wonder if I should just enjoy the cold while it exists! The heat is one thing I'm scared about.

One good thing is I'm meeting more and more NZ people who are going in July, which is great! Everyone seems lovely and that's always a good sign!

35 days till the big adventure!

So after chasing the mail place I finally got my hands on my shiny new visa!
When i looked at it I was like - what? I get no letter telling me I actually have it? I guess since there's a giant sticker in my passport I can assume that is it haha.

It came super quick! I had my interview last thursay, and it came that sat!

Anyway, I'm so happy that I have that secured now! I was freaking out for a few days, since I had my flights booked already when our rep said not to do it before the visa (on the like 1% chance you wouldn't get your visa).

Only 53 days till I leave and its getting more and more exciting!

The couple who are going to be looking after my in Texas sent me a link to the Rodeo we're going to and it looksso much like I've seen on the tv - so exciting!
I mean everyone is wearing cowboy boots and hats and their parade on July 4th is to celebrate "Mom, Dad and Apple Pie". Awesome. :P

Right, back to uni... EWrgh can't wait till all the assignments and examsare over and I can just think abot Disney!
