dd/mm/yyyy… or mm/dd/yyyy?

I fly today, 27/06/17 is finally here. That may be 06/27/17 for some readers, which has always baffled me. I find it very hard to read it this way- dd/mm/yyyy always seems like the logical approach, mm/dd/yyyy is like typing ‘United States of America, New York City, North America’… A huge mind fuck.

Finished packing: Check.

Passport and money: Check.

Headphones: No idea where they have gone, which has really frustrated me as I take them everywhere. The cheap in flight headphones will have to be smuggled through customs, hopefully they don’t die after a weeks usage.

Skyped with my mum and convinced her I would come back alive: Check.

Booked last minute travel insurance in case the above doesn’t totally go to plan: Check.

51a

I always thought that the longest month I would ever have would start December 1st. As a child I remember the pure excitement of making a list, checking it twice, and waiting to see the presents in my living room come the 25th. This excitement never died as a child. As I get older this is still a day I cherish but it doesn’t have the same magic. The excitement for me is now in travelling outside of my borders to a place I haven’t been. Somewhere that I am not required to work eight+ hours a day and can dip my feet in the cool waters. It sounds so simple yet so desired by any adult I know. I am drinking alcohol at 11.45am on Tuesday, weird to so many, secretly desired by as many.

I will blog daily for the next seven days, I will not be able to engage with the WP community as much- wifi issues, additional charges and all.

What is your favorite day of the year? Mine changes often and today, it is today.

Emptying my mind onto the web and hoping to make sense of it. Hoping to help others going through similar struggles.
