I AM GOING TO FRANCE AND ITALY WITH MY BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD.
OH MY GOSH.
Becky was originally going to go on the trip, but she dropped out near the beginning because she realized she wouldn’t be able to pay the whole sume that it costs. Since there was an empty spot, I was talking to Madame about what they would do with that, and she said that she was going to try and find someone to fill the spot. My first thought was that Andrew could take it, but he’s going on a family vacation around the same time, so wasn’t available. I then immediately thought Becky.
For a while we weren’t sure if she was going to be able to do it. She needed her passport (we’re leaving in 36 days!!) and she would have to pay extra to have it expedited. She’d also have to raise her own spending money and pay some late fees for joining the trip; but other than that, the trip is completely free to her.
We just got the final say yesterday on whether she could go or not. She called me saying she got her passport (she originally had a doctor’s appointment, so she missed school) and that her parents were okay with it.
I’ve been blubbering with excitement ever since. I’ve always been pretty excited for the trip, but I’ve always had these little nagging worries in the back of my mind. I didn’t have any real close friends going, so I wasn’t exactly sure who I was going to hang out with specifically, and since I paid so much money to go, I wanted to have a good time. I also love to take pictures, tons and tons of pictures, and I like to take really silly and bizarre ones too, so that might be kind of awkward with the people that I’m hanging out with.
I don’t really know how else to describe them besides little petty worries about the trip, but now that Becky’s going, they’ve all just disappeared. I can’t believe I am going to Europe with her. I can’t freaking believe it. I’ve known her since I was in the second grade, we’ve been best friends since the sixth, and we are practically the same. We always think the same way about things, do quirky things the same; there’s pretty much no awkwardness. She’s pretty much everything you could ever want in a best friend. <3
It’s going to be so hard to focus on school now. I can’t wait til summer. I AM SO HAPPY!!
