I'm kinda in the same situation as you....
(Original post by Nunu Bot)
So we were planning on going to Corfu this yearin early July (me and 8 other lads). We had a meeting at one of the guy's house and it turns out that pretty much all of them have pulled out (due to money, family etc.), so now me and another mate of mine who was also really hyped up to go are stuck in this situation. He had to deal with it for so long that he gave up and pulled out as well.
So now it's just me and obviously I'm not going to go on my own and its pretty much too late to book in with anyone else. Aside from the fact I have no clue where others are going.
Long story short, we ****ed up our plans, basically. To be honest, I don't careif those guys aren't going but it has had an effect on me because now I can't go either.
Last Summer I got my own plans messed up, I was going to go to Hungary for 3 weeks but ended up cancelling due to lack of organisation. But I was determined for this Summer to make sure that that sort of thing was not going to happen again.
But it has.
It really upsets me. You know why. Because hundreds of people in the UK are going on holiday as we speak. And now, I'm the one who's not going anywhere. Other people seem to organise their holidays and they work it out. Why is it my group that had to **** up? Why should I stay home while everyone else who goes to these party places are having a blast?
I know this is a rant, but it's the only thing this year that has really pissed me off. The everyday stress of work and college wouldn't have mattered as long as I got to go away during the Summer, but now I can't even do that.
I was suppose to be going Montreal,Canada (where my dad is from) and it was suppose to be an adventure for me as I would be going after 14 years!
I was looking forward to seeing my relatives, meeting up a pen-pal buddy and discovering the place where some of my roots are from. Also, as Im looking forward to joining the Canadian Forces, I wante dto see whether it was a good place to live and whatever else.
I am suppose to be staying with my uncle who has a big house and was gonna let me stay in his big basement with my own bathroom and everything. But now, he has finally been able to go ahead with his plans and will be moving to Toronto with his family (who would wanna leave Montreal for Toronto?!)
So now, my dad (who lives in LA) is telling me that if he does not find anyone for me to stay with there, I will have to go to LA for the summer.... (I love LA as its my second home. But, I go 2-3 times a year and want something different!)
P.S. I am also angry at my parents as they have never taken me back all these years and showed me the place where some of my roots come from!

Yes I suppose I do rely a bit too much on other people. But when you go away people always ask who are you going with etc. -.-
The only mind**** for me is this. Why is it that other people can organise a holiday fine (with other people), but my group screws up.
I'm not the sort of person to say "Why me" each time something bad happens - but seriously why me. Why are hundreds of other people booking holidays and I'm not. Such a pisstake man..
