So, many of you are wondering, “Wait, weren’t you supposed to be going to NYC sometime this week? I mean, Boston is awesome too, but NYC is where it’s at!”
Haha, well, it’s funny you should mention it…it’s kind of a long story…
You Givin’ Me a Hint?
Should We Stay or Should We Go?
And I mean, by that time, I didn’t mind staying. We’d been travelling to places nonstop ever since we left Covenant, and a day of just chilling at the house sounded super appealing to me. Not to mention, I’d get my money back, and UKISS’s new album was coming out in like 24 hours, so I would just use that money to get it (2-5 business days, y’all, and it will be in my hands. I’m so freakin excited! (^^) #BlasianKPOPfangirlprobz)
The Next Morning…
But I had to call Pa and make sure the weather report was still the same. Which it was. And I told him I was planning on staying because I trusted his judgment. It meant a lot to him that I trusted him and that I wasn’t getting angry at the fact that I wasn’t going to NYC at all.
I’m telling y’all, this was one of those moments when I realized how much I’ve grown since high school. Seriously, if I were a high schooler and Pa called me and told me not to go, I would have thrown a fit. But knowing that Pa was warning me because he cared about my safety, but still leaving the decision up to me…I mean, I still can’t believe I handled that the way I did…
My mom called and told me that Bria’s grandmother had called, and that my mom had told her grandma that I wasn’t going, which made Bria’s grandma want Bria to stay behind with me (mostly for weather purposes, not because I was going to be by myself).
I really didn’t want Bria to stay behind if she wanted to go to NYC. But Bria told me that she had already been thinking of staying because she knows my Pa doesn’t freak out about many things and also, she knows he’s lived in NYC for a year and knows the weather up here. So, we’d both decided on staying. And I was totally fine with that.
Caylin comes down the stairs and says, “Ugh, they’re getting cold feet up there because y’all decided to stay!”
Bria and I pulled on sweatshirts and went upstairs, telling Corinne and Frank to not worry just because we were staying. But Aunty Madeline was even worried about how they were going to get back from NYC, and Frank had gotten calls from parents saying not to drive in the snow because it was going to be bad.
Long story short y’all, we all stayed in Mass.
I know it was disappointing for all of us because honestly, NYC was the main reason we came up here. But I am grateful that we got to go to Boston because I’d never been before. And we’d gone to so many places that I’d never been too.
NYC is still in the US, so we can always go…it’s places like the Philippines, Japan, and Korea that we need to take chances on! (I want to go so badly)
But yeah. No New York City on this spring break. Maybe next time…
