It is the day I leave for New York City, I am relieved to be leaving this boring country South Africa, and sad to be leaving my loving parents, Diane and Steve Roberts. I can't imagine my life without them, but this is something every girl will have to do one day, leave the warm cosy nest we call home and spread our wings into the big world.

"Kirsty, have you got everything packed and ready? We are leaving for the airport in 30 minutes!" Diane shouts from downstairs.

"Yes mom! I am just double checking everything and I'll be right down!" I should back.

I finish double checking that I have everything packed, this isn't just a sleep over at a friends house, this is going to be a whole new chapter for me and my life. This could be forever. My father walks in to my bedroom and starts taking the heavy luggage bags down to the car in the driveway. I am taking ten luggage bags and two carry on bags. I check the last carry on bad, and put it by the door. My father takes the bag and walks back to the car.

I stand in the doorway of my bedroom and look around. It used to be so full of my belongings, my memories, my thoughts, all in one room that feels so empty just like my heart. I look around one last time before closing the door and think this is really goodbye. I walk down the staircase to the door of the house, I look around one last time and close the door to my life here. I get into the car and off we drive to the airport.

Walking to the international departure area of the airport where I have to check-in my ticket and luggage. My mom starts crying. I couldn't help myself anymore, I had to show my weak side and cry with her. My dad is obviously the big tough guy that doesn't cry. For heavens sake, his little girl is leaving for New York. Eventually he joins my mom and I while crying tears of joy and sadness. I have never really seen my father cry before, this is the first time I've seen this emotional side to him.

"My baby, you let us know as soon as you arrive okay. I am going to miss you so much. I love you and be safe Kirsty." My mom says while crying.

"My little girl, like your mother said, let me know when you arrive. And if there are any boys over there that want you, they need to go through me first. I'm going to miss you my girl. I love you my Kiddo." My father says wiping his pure blue eyes.

"I love you to mom, you too dad. I'll be safe. I promise. I'm going to miss you two so much. Its not even funny. And dad, I will send the guys that want me, to you. But only when him and I are engaged or something. " I say smiling through my tears.

I give my parents one last long hug and kiss. I take my bags and handbag and wave back to at them as I get to the check-in. I get past the check-in without those metal detectors beeping, lucky me. I walk over to the overly crowded seating area and I sit down, set my bags next to me. Everyone that is sitting in this sitting area is either using their mobile phone, tablet or laptop. So I take my BlackBerry out of my handbag and see I already have two text messages from my parents, telling me that the love me and miss me already. I smile at both of their text messages, and get teary eyed. I reply to the text messages and close them both.

I gently slide my finger over the smooth black track pad, to the blue Twitter icon. I open the app and browse through my filled up timeline. I stop browsing and I see the tweet from One Direction.

"@onedirection: Thank you to all the fans at Heathrow airport for such an incredible goodbye. Now New York City, the Big Apple. Here we come."

I smile at the tweet and Retweet it. So One Direction are going to be in New York City at the same time as me. I sit there, smiling like an idiot, but fangirling inside, major! Even though I just created a Twitter account, I still have to tweet right?

"@KirstyRobertsNY: At the airport waiting oh so patiently for my flight to NYC, sad but happy to be leaving South Africa. :)"

I hit the button and there it was, my first official tweet. I'm proud. I sit in the chair going through my timeline, I hear someone announce of the intercom thingie.

"Will Miss Kirsty Roberts please make your way to gate E for boarding flight Z750 to New York City at 9:00am. Thank you." The lady says with this weird accent.

"Oh shit, I'm coming." I shout. Only realizing that I was shouting that. And that called me was not next to me.

Everyone sitting there laugh and giggle and spoke among themselves, by what I just said. I take my bags and walk over to the boarding gates. The woman takes my plan ticket and stamps it and gives it pack to me, and allows me to go through. It takes me a while to get to where the air plane is, so I had to do that weird run to the plane. I get to the plane, walk up the stairs, and show the air hostess my ticket. She looks at me angrily and let's me through. I make my way to first class cabin and find my seat. I open up the compartment above my seat and put two carry on bags in there and such the compartment door. I take my seat and buckle up the safety belt.

I hated flying. I always had a fear that the plane would crash on the way to the destination. The plane begins to make its way down the runway and take off into the sky.

"Goodbye South Africa. I'm not going to miss you." I whisper to myself with a smile.

I'm leaving my old life behind and welcoming a new life for myself. As we are up in the air I take my iPod touch out of my handbag. I unlock it and go to the bright orange music icon. I press on it and gently swipe my thumb over the screen. I find the One Direction 'Take Me Home' album and hit play. I put the soft white earphones in my ears, close my eyes and before I know it I'm asleep.
