Bonus mid-week post!
So I’m getting on a plane today, leaving my totally unverified country of origin. Traveling always makes me anxious. And oddly, not the flying part. I love flying. Also not the being there part – I love being in new places. It’s the whole getting there part. I’m terrified I’m going to get lost in the airport, or show up there and realize my passport’s expired, or be late and miss my flight.
I have missed flights before. Because I was late. Because I’m terrible at adulting.
Once, I almost missed a flight on a layover because it decided to take off early and I was in a bar drinking and chatting with the bartender and couldn’t hear them calling my name.
I only realized I almost missed the flight when I showed up at the gate and they were all like: “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?! We’re about to take off!!”
I looked at the time: “Ummm, the flight doesn’t leave for another half-hour. I’m early. What’s happening?”
Deciding to take off randomly seems slightly unfair. Convenient, but unfair.
Anyway, the moral of the story is that I get anxious. Not while traveling, but before. This week has been a nightmare.
Wish me luck.
In exchange for that luck, I have a funny article for you.
I saw this come up in my news feed, and I had to share with you guys.
Here’s the link. Well worth the read!
I love Canada.
PS – Shit, I have to check on my passport now!
