I am really really excited because tomorrow, my best friend in the entire world, Miguel, is coming to America. I haven't seen him in person since August of 2008. I have sooo much to tell him about that we just haven't been able to get to via webcam and Facebook. This reunion is long overdue, and I can't wait to see him :)
We met my senior year of high school in my math class. He was an exchange student from Venezeuela, and my teacher was really bad at speaking English (she was from Malaysia), so they had the worst time communicating. She asked me to explain to him the supplies we needed for class. I got his phone number and invited him out to pizza that weekend. We were inseparable the entire time he was here. I went to Venezuela with him the following summer... and as they say, the rest is history.
He's bringing his friend Gabriela, who I met last summer when I was there, and I'm so excited to show her some American things, because she's never been here before! I am just sooo head over heels thrilled about all of it. Miguel's boyfriend was supposed to come, and I really wanted to meet him, but he wasn't able to afford the ticket this time (understandable... my ticket to Venezuela last summer was over $1000 and took me an entire year to pay for!!). I hope he gets to come next year!
Miguel is not like any other person I've ever met. He's the perfect compliment to my personality, and I feel completely blessed to have had the opportunity to meet him.
