No, I'm not talking waxing here. I could, but I won't.
I am always logged into one or two messengers throughout the day (usually ICQ and Yahoo!), but it's not any big deal really. There's never anyone to talk to. Yesterday, however, a little notification popped up telling me Dani was online. I was so giddy I almost peed myself. Seriously.
Dani was an exchange student from Brazil when I was in 10th or 11th grade. She and I became great friends. She has only been able to come back to the U.S. to visit once since that time and I rarely am able to talk with her. It's literally been years. So when she came online yesterday, I was estatic.
We chatted for quite a while. What I love about Dani is that she and I can usually pick right up where we left off without hesitation. She's funny and straight forward and I just love that.
Naturally, we talked about wanting to visit in person. I got online and started checking to see how much a ticket to Brazil would be. Holy hell! I could fly half way around the world for less than a ticket to Brazil. What on Earth? It was very depressing.
I don't know what to do for sure. So many friends live so far away and I'd love to visit all of them. It seems so unrealistic though. I need some frequent flyer miles or something. But, I suppose I'd actually have to go place to accumulate any. Ugh. What does one do?
