Well, would you believe in the time since I last posted on here (and in the past few days actually) I managed to take all my finals, graduate from university, and accept a job offer as a future flight attendant! I packed up my room from College Station, moved it all home (that’s a story in itself), and in 8 days I will be traveling to Florida for the first time for training (after I turn 22 on Monday!) Things are definitely moving quickly and they are definitely very, very good. I miss my friends from university, especially those I won’t be able to see for a longer period of time, but I have no worries about our friendships. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into freshman year as I applied for a Freshman Leadership Organization, but I am overwhelmingly content with where it took me and who it brought into my life. My heart is full with love, some missing, and a lot of hope for the daily. My traveling continues now. I always felt as if I was born to keep moving, to gain stories from outside lands (outside my hometown, that’s for sure), to greet, meet, befriend, love new people. To smile in new places and bring home new cherishes. I am happy right now, sitting in bed with Piper by my side as the whole house falls into a deep, quiet slumber. Rhythmic hums from ceiling fans and my sloppy keyboard typing on this new Surface 3 I received as a graduation present are the company Piper and I currently keep. This is nice. In a week I will be preparing to board a 5 AM flight, I will eventually land in Florida, and the month of new travel experiences will begin. And I know I will be happy then, too, and every moment in between. Home, base, and beyond.
Bonus!: Now I’m actually going to have travel stories to share with you all! I can be an actual travel blogger officially! In the next post I will list the few steps I’ve taken to prepare for training. Speak to y’all soon!
