Eager? or Anxious?

It  is more precise to use “eager” to imply impatient longing and “anxious” to imply mental distress or uneasiness.
I am eager to meet your parents.
I am anxious about the math test.

Just say "No Thanks."

If you don’t want to do something your friends suggest, just say, “no thanks.” You don’t have to explain why. If they repeat the suggestion or persist, just repeat the answer, “no thanks.” Eventually, they will get the message.
