Thirteen Reasons I Know That Everything Will Be Okay

I complain too much! I'll be the first to admit that I'm overwhelmed, emotional, and a lunatic. But I'm being pessimistic and need to get back to Happy Jesye, so here are 13 reasons I know everything is going to work out just fine:

The Duomo
  1. I'm moving to Milan: Home of the beautiful Duomo, gorgeous fashion, and Lake Como (meaning also George Clooney).
  2. I have the most supportive, wonderful, loving family in the world who puts up with my crazy and loves me for it. And they're already planning and saving to visit me! They're all I need.
  3. My friends are  awesome, fun, and amazing, and the ones who really care will stay in my life no matter how far apart we are.
  4. The movers are coming Monday, which makes me Stressy Jesye, but means that I'm almost done packing! Woohoo!
    Oh, hey George.
  5. The next three years are going to be a constant adventure, and one that I have been dreaming of for about 10 years. 
  6. I'll be so close to so many places I've always wanted to visit, and will finally have the opportunity to do so.
  7. I bought new shoes today, and that's always a good thing :) One pair of perfect boots left, and they were my size! And 47% off!
  8. My new country is known for their delicious pasta, pizza, gelato, and wine. There really could not be a more stellar list of foods to be famous for. As a side note, my new school has two on-site, 35-year veteran chefs. This is right from the website: "At lunch we serve at least two types of pasta, with a main course of meat, fish, or vegetarian, as well as side dishes of cooked vegetables and salads. For those who perfer a light lunch, there are mixed salads, bresaola, mozzarella cheese and a large selection of panini... After lunch there is always a selection of fruit and for special occasions there are beautifully made cakes and desserts made by [our] pastry chef... At evening events, [our chefs] serve the most wonderful delicacies, including lobster, truffles and wonderful pastries." Oh. My. Gosh. I'm already drooling. And really need to start preemptively exercising... 
    New shoes! Woohoo!
  9. Right now, I'm stressing about finding hiking boots before the movers come. Hiking boots for my 'field trip' to Switzerland. This is NOT something to stress over, this is something to be ecstatic about! I'm so lucky! 
  10. I'm going to have an adorable apartment in a town pronounced "Oprah." And saying I live in Oprah (its spelled Opera) is never going to stop making me smile.
  11. I'll be completely self-sufficient and not financially dependent on my parents or loans for the first time, which is pretty awesome.
  12. I made this happen, and have made it through the last three months (March-May 2013 will forever be known as my Months from Hell). I can do anything!
  13. This:
