A Walk Around Town! - billyknox

Hands down one of the best days so far! 

Last night was nuts. I taught my English class and then afterwards it was one of my colleagues “name day” so he had a small party at his house which I was invited to. The party was amazing. It was one of those moments where I realized I was surrounded buy people I really do love laughing and telling stories and just living well with. My language has improved to the point where I can understand stories and jokes and even throw in an occasional punch line here and there. The only down side to last night was that I was so tired from the holiday festivities. Traveling really takes it out of you and sleeping on the floor isn’t exactly ideal. I was so tired and called it a night around 12 even though the party went until 3:30 in the morning. 

This morning I woke up and just didn’t want to get out of bed. I turned my alarm off and decided to sleep a little longer. I was going to be late for work but I didn’t really have anything to do so I figured it wouldn’t hurt. 

Well I get to work and Adam Dominguez has sent me a facebook message. I didn’t open it right away because I like to savor these things. I read the news and look through some new pictures from our holiday extravaganza and finally get a message from him asking me if I had read his note. 

I say no.

He says read it. 

So I open it up and right there in black and white text is him telling me that his pops is springing for a ticket to come see me and that he is booking a flight leaving on Friday. 

WHAT? 

This Friday I ask? 

Yes this Friday. 

I start jumping up and down and literally run up and down the halls telling my entire municipality that my friend from America is coming and they better get ready because we are having a big party! 

I still can’t process the fact that he is actually coming. He will get in this coming Saturday and stay for a week. It is going to be unreal. I am so looking forward to a few beers and some good wine and deep rich conversations with the fool. He is one of my best friends and I feel like a five year old kid right now! Mr. and Mrs. Dominguez I owe you more than you will ever know! I miss you both O' so very much! Cole-baby and Brett I miss you guys as well!

Then to top it off: 

I am not a planner. Pretty much every trip I have ever been on other people plan and I just go with the flow and give them something to laugh at. I think it is in my nature to be relaxed and just take things as they come. 

Well I started getting emails and calls concerning New Years and it was apparent to me that people were looking to me to come up with something. Okay maybe I am giving myself too much credit here but whatever it is my blog so I get to spin things the way I want. 

Anyways I spent the morning exploring different options and ended up throwing together a group and getting a hotel room for us in Varna. Tobias you did help with finding the hotel (holler atchya boy). 

So this means: 

My friend is coming to visit and I officially accomplished something and, although possibly not entirely true, I like to think I saved New Years. 

So tomorrow I am hopping on a train with Jenna, Ashley, and Neil and headed out to Varna to meet up with old T Hewitt. I will bring the camera and let you know how it goes! 

Shout out to Momma Hewitt and Momma Starzynski. Your boys are great guys and I can only imagine that you are wonderful people! 

I love this place!

O, and I also got to speak with Miss Colette Granberry, or should I say the future Mrs. Collins. I am so freaking pumped for you guys and can't wait to come back for the wedding!!!
