okay, i know- lack of posts.

but living without internet makes things pretty hard.
i steal sarinah/adam's laptops whenever i can
and check emails but that's about it,
and the great thing is facebook is no longer an addiction!


i'm going to visit cas this weekend-
SUPER excited, it's going to be crazy
because we've talked about this for so long
and i'm taking a 7 hour journey (rail and sail)
to get there which is pretty exciting,
and i never thought it was long until my dad
told me it was halfway to malaysia- which is sadly true.

but i just can't abide flying at the moment,
i need a break from flying so much!

i super need an update.

and since my laptop STILL isnt connecting to
the Internet, i've had to borrow adam/sarinah's
just for important emails and stuff.

and i'm not really planning to fix it though,
i realised i've been spending waaaay too much time
doing nothing on the Internet and i'm not
going to do that this year!

i started 3rd year yesterday.

big step huh- i feel like i just left!
and it's only been two weeks and Nepal
already seems like a lifetime away ):

i'm so excited about this new year though,
it's going to be so busy with everything i want to do,
and i have a feeling that this year's going to be
totally different and i really want to somehow
make a different this year and not waste it.

and cas is coming too!
which i'm excited about- really hoping
to fly down next week sometime,
it's just really nice knowing that she's so much nearer.

so that's about it for now-
i have to get changed for class!

but i have absolutely no extra money

up in the north coast near the beach
just relaxing and lots of NI sightseeing!

my last day in Nepal!

it was really quite sad today,
i got a LOT of cards and they were very sweet.

im really going to miss nepal but
im super looking forward to flying back also!

and the bad thing is,
i feel absolutely horrible now-
i think i'm having a fever/the start of stomach upsets or something-
very bad timing ):

this morning, i checked my fb account
and i got tagged in an AWESOME photo!

which is 15 years old ):

guess which one i am!

(yes, i was the tallest even then)

and loads of people were tagged and
everyone seems to remember one another
but i have no recollection of kindergarten at all!

and boy, do my classmates have awesome memories,
cause one remembers having a crush on me
and i apparently kissed another.

and i've always thought i was a really
goodytwoshoes kinda girl when i was younger!

my love life has really gone downhill huh.

i am having a terrible time deciding
which of my stuff to keep and which to give away.

i keep looking at these clothes that i will probably
never wear again and a small voice keeps going
'but- i might want to wear that someday
when the sun finally comes out in belfast!'

did my last sightseeing thing today at Bhaktapur,
this ancient city where people still live in
houses built hundreds of years ago
(it's a UNESCO heritage site)
and it was really like stepping into a different world,
cause saturday is their washing day (as in clothes AND body)
so everyone was out doing things the old fashioned way
in their really old beautiful houses,
it really felt like i stepped back in time!

the only terrible thing was that on the way back
it started raining crazily and the road back home
is basically a two-way mud path,
it was like driving in a mud pit!
(not that i know how that actually feels like)

almost got knocked over by a bus,
and i had a terribly awkward conversation
with this slimy Nepali guy- they are awfully staightforward!

that's one thing i won't be missing
(the men here striking up a conversation-
i get too distrustful and give monosyllabic answers)

plus the stares ):
i really hate the stares.

when i wear my normal western clothes
and get on a bus- everyone turns around and
proceeds to spend their whole journey looking
at me- and not with a nice expression,
i feel like the monkey at the zoo all the time.

and the worst thing is when i finally get to
blend in wearing my kurtasuruwal and
i have to open my mouth to talk to the bus conductor-
then my disguise shatters and the stares are worse than ever!

my last Sunday tomorrow!
