Seasoned Travelers

So you'd think after 15+ years of decent traveling my parents would be ok taking on Europe for two weeks.

Think again.

My mother was freaking out. Almost on the verge of hyperventallation. She was feeling so unorganized, and was going to miss us a lot.

They left yesterday morning for Germany via Atlanta...my parents have the worst luck in Atlanta. Once in air on their way out of the U.S., the engine had some problems and they had to land in Nova Scotia. Not quite Germany, but they were stuck there for the day, so hopefully they've made it onto a flight to Germany by now!

I heard of a dramatic panic attack by my mom, and some tears over missing the town she most wanted to go to...but this resulted in a promise made by my dad, one he'll probably regret.

He promised my mom a family trip (that means I will not be left in Logan) back to Germany, through the Alps, ending in Lake Como, Italy. And we will not let him forget this, he probably doesn't realize this is now on our list of places to go this summer, and we will make it happen. When it comes to traveling, we will not let him get away with no trip. Should we remember the Australia/New Zealand promise from 2003??

That one I personally did not forget, and it was so worth it.

Today I went and had my driver's license renewed. It's so crazy to think that five years ago, my dad picked me up from school, we had to wait for a day I didn't have soccer practice, and we went to get that little piece of paper that says I can drive. I remember thinking, in five years I will be in my third year of college, my friends will be coming home from missions, people will be married, heck, I'll be 21!
Well folks, here we are five years later and all these things are happening, but I still feel like a little 16 year old, until I think of the things I've accomplished. Mono (and everything that comes with it), graduating high school, first year of school/moving away, figuring out exactly who I want to be and what I want to strive for, etc...
Hmmm....I wonder what the next five years has in store....we'll have to wait and see.

Well. Pretty much I worked all summer, and here are some things that happened to me.
  • picking up orders from gay men once a week
  • falling into the bushes
  • driving down 2100 S. around 10:30 to see the man in full tribal wear
  • scaring the boss
  • opening the bathroom door, wind picking up my map, map falling directly into the toilet (it really happened)
  • driving to provo 2+ times a week
  • recieving a "good luck" cake
  • finding prizes (aka used band-aids, key chains, razor blades, freaky chinese bugs) in the boxes of envelopes from china
  • my hands turning blue from said envelopes
  • trying to rid of old mexican man at mickey d's wanting to see me again
  • unusually large amounts of asians on roads occasionally

Now you're all wishing you had my job right?
