In Logan

Well, this is it. I'm sitting in the terminal in Logan, waiting to board my plane. I can't believe this is finally happening! I'm really scared that I won't be able to find a place to stay the one night before we can go to our flats. I also don't want to make a fool of myself. However, I don't think I could be much more prepared than I am now. I plan on buying a good map as soon as I can, and I will refine my plan of action when I get to Paddington station.

I'm really excited to be doing this, but also very nervous. There's a few details I'm not sure of, which isn't helping. I'm really going to miss nightskyre, londo, and my other WPI friends as well. I hope my IQP partners and I don't kill each other ;)

In Montreal

Pretty uneventful journey so far. The Montreal airport is pretty confusing to get around, though. *coughstupidfrenchiescough* I'm starting to get pretty tired. I guess this is a good thing, because although it is 7PM here, it's midnight in London right now, so I guess my body is already starting to adjust (as long as I keep in mind current London time).

I called my Mom to let her know I've made it this far safely; thankfully, I was able to keep the call to less than 5 minutes. She was so happy to find out that my cell phone number won't change when I'm in London. I had to point out that it's still more expensive, as the roaming charges are astronomical. Then again, everything in London is expensive, or at least that's what I hear.

I can't wait to just get on the plane and get going. I think I've got about another 1/2 hour before then. In the meantime, I'm really bored, and I don't want to try buying food w/ American money here. I hope nightskyre made it back out of Logan all right. I can't wait to talk to him again when I arrive in the morning. Wow, I've got it pretty bad for him... I wonder how we're going to be able to handle these two months apart. We can't afford to call each other much - maybe we'll go the old-fashioned route of letters (supplemented by emails).

Hrm. They've started the pre-boarding, so it looks like we will be boarding soon, after all. That would be really nice.
