Plus I've always wanted to try real Italian gelato . Apparently it's what ice cream is supposed to taste like, and since I love ice cream, gelato must taste like a little piece of heaven on earth.
I actually love all of Europe, and would love to tour all of it. Italy as my first priority of course, then France, Greece, Spain Germany, and any other place that I could go to. As I said before I've wanted to go to Italy for a really long time, and always planned to go, but I never actually had a plan to help me get there. I just always just assumed some how I would go. A couple of weeks ago though, Kelsey told me that one of her friends is going to Europe, and that she'd been saving up since she was my age.
So I finally looked reality in the face, and realized that the money was going to have to come from somewhere, and I would have to save like crazy starting now, and make a lot of sacrifices. Which it will be really hard for me to say no to my friends sometimes when they ask me if I want to go to a movie with them since movie tickets are 8.50 now. And to say no to myself when I see a really cute shirt I want. I'll say yes sometimes of course though. ;)
That's why I took a jar, and it's now my Italy jar, and in a time very far from now it will be filled with hundreds of dollars. And then I will have to get another jar, or maybe even a couple more, and fill them up too, and then maybe I will have enough to go. So far I am a whole $6 closer to my goal! Wish me luck!
