Yeu should've seen me when I got stuck in the hospital for a week after being diagnosed with diabetes. No access to forums, to AIM, or contact with friends online? I was going freaking NUTS pacing around panicing as I was worried they'd be worried I was dead or something, since the last thing I did was say I was sick and going to the hospital >.>
If I don't have enough time to prepare for something which drags me away from friends for a long time without getting to warn them, I get very panicy and can't truly enjoy it.
I didn't even care for christmas this year; went 'home' for the holidays... meant to stop by for a day and drop off presents. Got stuck there for a week straight with no net access, and was going crazy.
Soooo yeah. Just realize that kids these days have alot of things tying them down, and ripping them away abruptly doesn't necessarily have anything to do with type, as it does that if yeu interrupt or pull them away from something they're clinging to, it isn't necessarily a good thing :o
I doubt they mind the trip, so much as they mind the "no time to let friends know wth's going on".
