1. Cautious excitement

You make a tentative plan, but you aren’t sure if it will actually happen. Until you know for sure, you keep the visit hush-hush and don’t get your hopes up

2. Solidifying the plans

When my best friend said she would see me for sure I screamed and jumped up and down. Three months is a long time, people.

3. She's coming!

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
