going merry - dreamship

Please don't pinch me

Right now I'm getting more and more worried that I'll wake up and key parts of the past couple of months will have been nothing but a dream! It all really seems too good to be true... but, no. It's true! And so awesome!

First my getting accepted to my university's exchange program with Kyoto university. That started out as a crazy dream of mine, and ended up being reality - something which hasn't quite sunk in yet, even though I'm leaving in two months!

Then gnine gets the job she wanted, that's taking her to my area of Japan days before I arrive there, and she'll be somewhere close for the whole time I'm there. That means xparrot-neechan has to come, or we'll do terrible things to her, and I'll be in the same country with some of the people I love most in this world. Not just the same continent - the same country! And in the same part of the same country! There's no way to properly express how wonderful this is, but all I have to say is that for the last seven years, the Atlantic Ocean has felt like an awful nuisance. Well, no more needing lots and lots of time and money and planning in ahead and flying in planes (or using teleporters, or sailing pirate ships... though we never did get those working properly) to be able to hang out! Go us! ^_^

I thought I couldn't be happier, but it turns out I was wrong!

shayera is coming to! She found out today, she got her scholarship, and her first choice of university, and she'll now be spending one year attending Kyoto university! Congratulations, sweetie, and I told you so. XD

Anyway. This means I'm going to be in Japan (!) together with my closest friends (!!). And it all just sort of happened - one thing after the other working out, and all of those things together worked out to - this. Which is unbelievably cool, and not just one dream come true, but several. I cannot believe how lucky I've been. Wow. I think I'm just going to sit here and grin for a while.
