A GIF Story: My Best Friend is Studying Abroad

When I first found out my best friend planned on studying abroad, we were both so excited…
 
 
But then reality hit me when I realized that I was going to have to spend a whole semester without her.
 
 
The last time I saw her before she left, I was a mess.
 
 
I even tried to fit in her luggage…
 
 
And I couldn’t put my phone down until I knew her plane arrived safely.
 
 
I stalk Facebook obsessively to see the pictures of all the fabulous sights she’s seeing.
 
 
And when I see her posting pictures with cute, foreign boys…
 
 
I can’t help but get jealous of her posting pictures by the pool and I’m stuck in the snow like…
 
 
I spend a good part of my day daydreaming about living vicariously through my best friend.
 
 
I get really excited when I can Skype with her, even if it isn’t for too long.
 
 
I’m counting down the days until we are reunited…
 
 
And I’m constantly thinking about the day she’s back home!
 
 
I wonder what exotic present she’ll bring back for me ;)
