i do feel as though i practically ran away, since most of you had no clue that yesterday morning i was going to step on a plane and a few hours later be in minnesota. and here i am. sitting at the computer on 10 Cedar Drive with a perfectly lovely family and a perfectly lovely friend, who i surprised right before she had to run. fun, fun.
it was my first time flying alone… and not internationally. the security was so relaxed! being the not so very independent person that i am, i didn’t think i would enjoy being all by myself very much, but had a jolly ‘ole time sitting next to a weird old lady who decided not to have kids like normal people do, but would fill her house with 5 cats and 2 dogs and show off pictures of her extremely fat and lazy looking animals to people who didn’t know what they were getting into by sitting next to her. of course, she was shocked to find out that i’m still in high school and immediately decided that since i wasn’t out of college yet, i would fall in her category of “annoying kids and that’s why i didn’t have any” and didn’t talk to me again. okay, i just made that part up. she was surprised to find that i wasn’t even out of college yet (do i look that old?!) and she doesn’t like kids and that’s why she doesn’t have any, but she wasn’t at all rude towards me. i just figured that would make my story all the more interesting. but i lose why i’m saying all this.
anyways. yes, you’re there and i’m here. with her.
and minnesota has amazing skies. really, it does.
