It’s day one! Today is the first day of IT project 2014! Can somebody please pinch me? Is this really happening?
I don’t really know what today is going to look like, but I do know this is probably going to be the longest day of my life(Well, probably not. I was in show choir.) Last night I was so excited(and Much Ado About Nothing was so enticing) that I only got three hours of sleep. I woke up at 3:30, left for Omaha at 4, arrived at 5, and almost missed my 6:05 flight because of the insane lines at the airport.
Side note: sorry to all the people I skipped in line. A nice gentleman said “They’re holding the plane come with me.” and so I went. Never mind he was flying to Dallas. Whatever. It was kind of a God thing.
Basically I have one more flight to LA and then all the things that happen there. Which I’ve been told includes shopping and meeting people and getting settled in…. Translation: exhaustion! However, I am so excited to meet all my new best friends and to become more like Christ through this experience as well as learn how to be a better witness to the nations!
One final comment, time zones are crazy. I’m really glad that Vegas is two hours behind Lincoln. I almost had a second heart attack when I got off the plane and turned on my phone to see it was 8:18…. no. It’s not. It’s 7:18. But right now I could really use a drink. Of water. Because my mouth is so freaking dry from all this flipping out over flights.
Gracie Girl! This is so exciting! Go have an adventure! Love and prayers!
It’s actually not uncommon to have that “they’re holding the plane, come on” thing happen. I’ve had it a couple of times-and ultimately, the other folks’ plane isn’t going to leave sooner because you scooted past them in line. They’d just be hurrying up at one line to wait at the next.
Praying God does amazing things in and through you this summer!
