The more I think about the trip to Italy, I get mixed emotions; excited, nervous, scared. I’ve never gotten on a plane, let alone been away from my family for two weeks. I also think about my phone and not being able to communicate with anyone from home for two weeks. That’s extremely scary! I use my phone way too much; but yet again it can help me out so I won’t be distracted. What I’m trying to do to calm my nerves is think about the experience I will be getting from Italy, meeting new people and trying new things because there is always a first time for everything.
