I said something about just hoping things stay relatively stress-free, hoping to do some things with friends but not having any definite plans.
She says, “Well, I have an idea. I was wondering… if you would like to go to Holland with me in the spring and stay at my aunt’s house, who lives just outside of Amsterdam?”
I had to think really long and hard and consider the question for about .03 seconds before I shouted, “YES!”
I even have a valid passport.
I am *so* there. I don’t care if I have to work extra to afford the airfare (who knows what my finances will look like at that point) — I’m going. That sounds so good. And there is a piece of advice a fellow exchange student once told me, which I am going to follow for the rest of my days, “Never turn down a free place to stay overseas.”
This definitely helped my mood.
