1. Dads new job
"Anna get in here!" I heard my dad shout rudely from down stairs. I knew I wasn't in trouble, he was just trying to trick me.
I leapt off the bed and scurried down stairs, eager to find out what my dad had to say. I walked into the kitchen to find my dad sitting at the dinning table holding a letter in his left hand, and wearing a massive grin on his face.
"What's up?" I ask.
"Guess who has been assigned to work in Australia."
"WHAT!?!?" I couldn't believe it I had always wanted to go to Australia it was my dream and my dad knew it, he just wanted to gloat that he was going. I felt happy for my dad but at the same time I felt miserable as I figured he would end up face timing me telling me 'Australia is amazing' and 'it's a shame your not here' and I'd be stuck at home eating everything to block out my sadness.
"Yep I leave next month, and I know how much you wanna go so..." He paused for enough time to make my heart raise and allowed me to prepare a scream. "I thought I'd take the cat," he joked and then started laughing.
I let out a huff but ended up laughing along with him.
"Would you like to come to Australia with me?" He asked seriously.
"Yes yes yes!" I screeched. "Oh my god, I can't believe this!
I turned and headed straight up to my room I opened my laptop and quickly tapped letters on my keyboard to update my status "I'M GOING TO AUSTRALIA BITCHES!!!!" My heart sank. I must have hit sudden realization because my stomach felt weird, the buzz rose in me, I couldn't stop smiling. I felt like I needed a remote so I could pause my life just to process what happened. 'I'm going to Australia' I kept saying over and over in my mind. I'd dreamed of it since the age of seven. I was literally sat on my bed crying with happiness.
When I looked over at my laptop I saw I had 20 likes on my status and more coming. I wasn't really popular but people did like what I had to say when it came to Facebook, because I never wrote pointless shit. I was receiving a lot of messages from people wishing me luck and praising me. I may had spread my love for Australia to just about everyone I'd met.
