My parents are making me go on a year long trip to the Bahamas. Yes, I know, it sounds crazy that someone is making you go on a year long vacation but to me, it is so much more than just that.
I am extremely close to my family, friends, and animals which makes it that much harder to leave them behind. I have two dogs and two cats, they are like my siblings.
My family and friends are really important to my life. I have friends that I have been friends with since first and second grade and I’m currently in ninth grade. My family has always been there for me and has never let me down. I could not ask for a more loving and caring family.
While we are out and about on the islands some family members and friends are going to visit us for a few weeks and I’m excited about that. I will also be able to fly out during holidays and summer.
I wonder if it will be strange or uncomfortable, going back home to the city, when we get use to the warm feeling of the sun and water around us and the sound of the birds and waves putting us to sleep at night?
I don’t know what I’m going to do not being able to see my family when I want but that will make me appreciate and be that much closer to my family when I come back than I am now.
Like they say, something good always comes out of something bad, so I’m sure something good will come out of this, I’m just not sure what yet.
