i woke up at 2:30 today.
i was so excited/nervous that i couldn’t go back to sleep when i did my inevitable 2AM wake up. i double checked my suitcase and put my electronics into their chosen spaces and waited for my mom to be ready to leave for the airport.
we drove out and got to the airport at 7:15.
our departure was at 9:45.
i believe that arriving early to the airport is an absolute necessity. i may have a fear of flying but my fear of being late is worse.
so we went through the TSA and i got to show my ID for the first time.
then we waited at the gate for a little over an hour.
i did a small exploration of the airport while my mom watched our bags and i discovered our airport has a paciugo!!!!
i love cold shit!!!!!!
then it was the time.
it was 9:15.
we boarded the flight.
i took a selfie (of course)
and the plane took off.
i made an attempt at napping but was immediately distracted by the snacks they brought out including the tiniest cutest pretzels ever!
i watched a few stand up specials “Private School Negro” by W. Kamau Bell, “Nanette” by Hannah Gadsby, and “Hard Knock Wife” by Ali Wong.
and we were done.
of course i sporadically stopped my viewing to take pictures of clouds for you. here they are:
while getting off the plane and receiving my carryon i broke the hell out of my right thumb nail.
we waited at the luggage carousel and i took pictures. duh.
we were picked up by my moms friend, Colette, and we went to the place i’d been waiting to go to for over a year. CAVA.
i didn’t take any pictures of my food because i’m not that weird but i will tell you it was wonderful.
we then dropped our luggage off at Colette house and then went off to go swimsuit shopping for me. my old swimsuit doesn’t fit right so i needed a new one.
we also bought a bunch of food and household stuff at target alongside my swimsuit and now i’m at the house writing this.
these travel posts are hard to write because it is absolutely impossible to make life sound interesting via text if you’re uncreative like me.
