HEY! :)

Hi! :) Remember me? Kendra?

No?

...

Yeahh, this is awkward.

Anyway, hello there :) It is July 6th, which means there are 2 days until something very big happens to me. You might remember me talking about this in January, and if you don't, here's the post: Official Announcement Post.

*gives you a minute to read it*




*still giving*




Finished? Yeah, you didn't read it, did you? :P

Anyway, it basically says that I am going to Europe. I am going to Spain, France and Italy, without my family, for 19 days. That's a long time, my friends. Up until this week, I haven't been nervous whatsoever. Up until today, I've only been nervous about the plane (I've never been on one before). But now, I'm starting to get just plain old nervous in general.

19 days is a long time! Almost three weeks, in fact! I won't see my friends, my family, my dog, my bed, anyone for almost a month! What have I gotten myself into?

But the biggest part of myself is still really excited :) I'm not going to flip out and beg to get out of this like I used to do about things. I'm going to pretend I'm not nervous at all and get on the plane without a single tear. I'm going to console my mom and Lizzy and tell them I'll take pictures and notes for them and not to be sad. I'll be strong.

I'll get homesick, I know, but I'll also have a really good time. It's literally the chance of a lifetime. I can't believe I get to do this! This is so cool!

Prayers would be greatly appreciated if you ever happen to think of me during the next few weeks. I know I'll be needing them, if only for the little things.

Talk to you later! Bye!

P.S. I miss this...

Wow, that sounds awesome! I hope you have a bunch of fun! And it's okay to be nervous and worry a little, especially if you haven't done anything like this before. But don't worry too much, you'll be fine! I'll pray for you! :)

That sounds fun. You can practice your Romance Languages. How close are these languages to Latin?

Watch out for peanuts.

So exciting! Don't worry about the plane. They're fun. The only thing I don't like is that my ears don't pop, but that's because I have bad allergies and small ear canals. You probably won't have that problem. Just chew gum.

You're going with your school right? I don't remember if it was a school thing or not and I don't have time to check. So long as you aren't going alone. It will suck being away from your family so long, but it'll be fun too. :) You get your first taste of independence! Have fun girl and be safe.
