My posts have been kind of down lately. But, boy, do I have a lot to say right now. I’m going to break this post up into two different posts. Because I am definitely going to need something fun to write about tomorrow probably.
So, here is a little something about me that you may not know. I am terrified of flying. I don’t know why. It’s the same type of fear I have of going to the dentist or the doctor or anything else like that. Once I’m on the plane, I’m okay. But before it and during takeoff and landing – things are just not good.
Now, I haven’t really flown that much anyways. And I have never flown by myself. Ever.
But I needed a pick me up. And my best friend needed a pick me up. And I have never been to Texas. And I am terrified.
I booked a flight to Texas for a part of my spring break. We have a Friday-the following Sunday off. So, technically a little over a full week. I am leaving for Texas Friday evening and then coming back Wednesday morning (I’m actually traveling pretty much all day on Wednesday). That means I will have four full days with my best friend. Which I’m sure will be plenty and leave me wanting more probably.
I had a flight that I had wanted to take that was super cheap, but didn’t book it. Then, I found a flight tonight and almost didn’t book it, but knew that I had to. I’m not leaving out of (or flying back into) my local airport, but the flight was way cheaper when not flying in and out of.
So, I spent more money. But if I use my cashback bonus from my discover card, I’m really only paying $89 for the flight – not even.
I don’t want to justify this, but I feel like I need to.
There will be more to come about this, I’m sure.
But this was an exact pick me up that I needed. It will be perfect to be down there. It will give me something to look forward to. It will get me through the next two and a half (ish) months. And it will give me something to look forward to.
And hopefully no one gets mad at me about it because I have a friend that has wanted me to come to Florida for a very long time and I haven’t done it. But maybe I’d be more likely to now – although she won’t be there anymore.
Either way, this was a choice that I made and a choice I wanted to make.
This post is rambling and not coherent at all, I’m sure.
I’m excited and I’m scared and I’m pumped. It should be a great time and I’m very excited about it!
I should be doing so many other things right now, but this is what you get.
So: recap. Flight booked. Terrified and excited and ready. Nervous about so many things. Ready to expand my life.
That’s it. That’s all you’re getting. I promise (or at least I hope) that tomorrow will be a little more coherent and fun as well. Do not judge me. I can’t get my thoughts out fast enough. Looks like I probably won’t be sleeping again tonight!!!
