this afternoon, i was on my way to the discount travel agency when i suddenly realized that i don’t have enough money to buy a plane ticket. hell, i don’t even have enough credit to buy a plane ticket.
this is an excellent illustration of the fact that i am, first and foremost, a romantic lover of ideas and plans.
it’s also slightly insanely disorganized of me, which i find rather appalling because i like to think of myself as being quite together.
and it’s a sobering thought, especially because i already got an australian work visa.
more than anything though, the situation has me laughing. who the fuck did i think i was anyway, that i’d just magically run away to the other side of the world in the new year? did i forget about capitalism? how naive i let myself be!
i’m not sure of what my new plan will be. i can go to japan first, still from april-june, then australia afterwards; that way i’ll have more time to save up funds. or i can get the limit raised on my credit card and stick to the original plan. or i could hold a fundraiser party… before friday, which is the closing sale date for the plane ticket i’ve reserved. there’s lots of posibilities, and i’m not stressed about it. if anyone hears of a crazy cheap flight to australia or japan, please let me know.
