飛行機の切符

So things started to sink in a bit more recently. Like I had thought, buying my plane ticket really helped. It took some time to figure out exactly what Peter and I wanted to do. Since our original plan was to get there the first day the dorms opened. But the tickets kept going up and down in price, and finally went up to an amount that we both agreed we didn’t want to pay. So after talking we wondered if it would be cheaper to get there a few days earlier. Since we would leave on a Tuesday instead of Friday. It ended up being a lot cheaper. Even after adding the price of the hostel for three nights it ended up being a couple hundred less than what we were originally going to pay.

So now, we get to pay less and we get to explore Osaka for a few days before we have to check in the dorms. I’m pretty excited and I know Peter is as well. The airline we are flying is a much better one then the other one we almost took. Having my luggage lost for a few days and having stuff stolen was enough to convince me to be really cautious about booking with them again.

Anyway, here are my flight details!

FINALLY!

So after what felt like the longest month of my life, yesterday I finally received my acceptance email from Kansai Gaidai!

For the last month I’ve had my phone attached to me at all times just in case the email came. The one night I come home from work exhausted and leave my phone in the bathroom, I get the email. I was half asleep at 8 in the morning and just happened to see my phone in the bathroom. All I saw when I looked at the email was ACCEPTED. That’s all I needed to know at that moment. I woke up Alan, made phone calls, and generally just flipped out with excitement.

It still doesn’t feel real though. Maybe when I buy my plane ticket it will feel more final. Peter hasn’t heard back yet, and I’m going to wait until he does to buy a ticket. I want to fly with him and get our seats together. I can wait a few weeks. All I’ve been thinking about is whether or not I was even going to be accepted. And now that I am, it’s an incredible relief. I can enjoy my summer and work on getting everything together. I have a ton of stuff I need to get done before August.

For right now though all I can think is, I’M GOING TO JAPAN!
