Friday June 3rd
Emily wakes up and I had promised her I would walk her to the bus as to make sure that she gets on and is well on her way home:)
So I wake up and put some clothes on, walk her to the bus,the bus arrives at 5:10am its so sad to say good bye
but I will see her again soon! We’ve become such good friends! SAFE Travels friend!
I walk back to the hotel, soaking up every breath and sight of my walk….I think about going for a run, one last time….Just a thought no fears! lol I go back to the room and jump in the shower so that I am fresh for my flight! I come out and get ready pack a few things and lay down on my bed for the last time, bc Vanessa needed to take a shower and the hairdryer is in the bathroom. So I’d wait on my bed….AKA Pass out until she was done and woke me up! So then I dried and styled my hair. We then went to breakfast. Back to the room to pack the last items and double check the room.
7:45am We’ve said our good-byes and to the bus we(Vanessa,Sarah,me, and Stephanie) go!
We hop on the bus, it takes 30min to get to the airport….its a rough trip! lol I was literally sweating! gross yes but it happens….(especially to me) ok so now we have arrived to the airport….
It is around the same size as STL airport…maybe a tiny bit smaller…but its much more confusing than STL….Nothing really makes sense and its in ENGLISH! like WTF right?!
Well Stephanie walks me around to try to find Delta…which is on the other end of the earth compared to where they were(flying swiss)…How nice of her right? So I get in line, 1st step: talk to a lady who gives me the 3rd degree…asks me about my stay blah blah blah 2nd step check luggage …she was so nice! 3rd security…it went very smoothly! no big deal I was like wow! 4th went to find my gate …which was on the opposite side of where I was…NBD getting my walk in b4 my 10hr flight!!!
As I walk up I realize I have to go through yet another check point…here I thought I was finished right? NOPE
So I walk up all bright eyed and bushy-tailed! The lady tells me to leave my belongings on the table and come with here she then frisks me….SO AWKWARD like she is getting PERSONAL! like WOAH lady! I don’t even think the doctor touches me like that! (lol ok not really that bad BUT close!) OH and it doesn’t stop there! Then I take my shoes off and they run it through the x-ray machine, then I put my shoes back on and walk over to the table where the other lady goes through my purse…then my chocolate( which by the way I’m sure they saw my OVERSIZED bag of chocolate and JUDGED ME! lol NBD) my laptop and my pillow(random I thought) and put it into another basket where a man took me into another room and waved some random paper like thing over my stuff then he put it into what looked like a copy machine…lol then he said I could go….and sure enough FINALLY I got to go….Then I found my gate and sat down…I was like THE 1ST one there…..prolly bc I was 2hrs b4 take off…I then sprawled out on the chairs bc who knows how much room I’ll have on the plane right?
I catch up my blog, look for an internet source….which nope not at my gate! STANDARD! thats ok I’m catching up on good stuff! ok well then I got bored had to go to the bathroom….came back and everyone and their mom had shown up…I sat next to my original seat that was now taken up by a good looking older man(by older I mean even older than my parents…not by much maybe 10 at the max) He looks so familiar but I can’t put my finger on it….All of a sudden someone comes over the intercom and says something about something not working on the flight blah blah blah you will get 100 us dollars when you get to Atlanta bc of your inconvenience. I thought they said that the AC wasn’t working and I was like HOLD THE PHONE! I’ve already sweat my life away I’m NOT about to go through hell for 10hrs! OH NO! So I turned to the good looking gentlemen and asked him what was going on….apparently the tv and sound wasn’t working on the flight….OMG THIS IS GONNA BE A LOOOONG flight! NO movie? You’ve got to be joking! Well hopefully my computer will last so I can get some good homework time down! I will finish my book! I knew I should’ve brought another one! lol oh well! you live and you learn!
So we board the plane, I find my seat and find that no one is sitting next to me HEY-OH! who is excited!
I mean I was hoping that I was sitting next to a well to do, attractive SINGLE man who I would put under my spell during our 10hr flight….but I mean when life hands you lemons…ya kno?! lol Being by myself will be great! I haven’t had nearly enough “alone time” here we go 10hrs of it! lol
I’ll keep you posted!
So tell me why I can’t sleep? BUT I got my book read! yay go me! first book I’ve read in like in a day (litteral read) since I was in 5th grade….NBD lol
I started on some hw to! I’m being SO productive…Not feeling well though….Oh well…being awake for 24hrs will do that! lol but We are almost to Atlanta! yay!!! I’m almost home!
ATLANTA is sooooo busy! and there are so many military people here! I’m craving a starbucks frappaccino!!! and of course after I’ve walked to the other end of the airport with all my stuff I find a map that shoes starbucks is where I had started! so Seatle’s coffee will do Mint Frappe will work just fine and a banana! yay!
I called Boogie to pass the time… I miss my friends and family….but I will be there in an hr!!! I landed in STL right on time and mom and dad were there to greet me! IHOP we go for dinner! Off to bed!
