25%!

I'm super excited. :) I finish my degree at the end of this year, and after that I either want to do a one year graduate programme, or honours. At the end of that, I want to go on an epic pan-Asia trip! I've started saving. I'm aiming to get at least $10k by October next year, and yesterday I reached the $2500 mark, so I'm one quarter of the way to my minimum amount!

Unfortunately, I think I'll have an extremely large vet bill to pay soon, so I won't be putting anything in for a while, but once that's paid I can get right back to saving. :)

Life.

Thanks! I hope so. :) I want to start in Russia, then go through China, Tibet, Nepal, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. If I have any money left over from that I'll be going through Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Borneo and South Korea too. :)

I didn't take a gap year, after all. :p

Life.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
