As I look around at the lives that inhabit our planet, I find more sad faces than happy ones. I believe this could be easily remedied if we took a moment out of our day to acknowledge something as insignificant as the morning dew. Through this simple task we might find that the world really isn’t as bad as we make it out to be, instead we would find that, against all odds, magic still dwells on this earth. All we have to do is take the time to discover it.
an hour long flight with the kiosk machine and thirteen hours of flying I finally
made it to England. Which I must say was an adventure in it’s self.
towards the beginning of this adventure I had my friends Paige, Arianna, Eric,
and Brandon by my side to help make things somewhat easier, but when we reached security
I was forced to say good bye by the laws of the airport and fend for myself (something
that turned out to be a lot easier than I had originally expected). After a few
moments I discovered that I loved the airport but more than anything I loved
being in it alone.
would think it would make for a boring plane ride but in fact it was the exact
opposite. Because I was by myself I made friends with a New Zealander with blue
and purple highlights named Noam. He was around my age and heading off to his
second year of college. Together we played cards and joked about one day
meeting up in the future while we waited in our terminal. All and all he was a
pretty cool guy who I will probably never see again but had the pleasure of
my first flight I was stuck sitting next to these two men who would only
discuss the topics of politics and universities-- two things I really have no
interest in. So instead I focused my attention on writing letters, making friendship bracelets,
and reading North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell (an author who is much more appreciated
in her homeland than in America).
the plane landed I quickly stood up so that I could run to connecting flight,
but the passage way between the airport and our plane had broken during our
landing so I was stuck for a good thirty minutes hoping I wouldn’t miss my
flight. When it was finally fixed I frantically ran through airport only
to discover that my connecting flight was boarded and waiting for me.
the last flight nothing really exciting happened since all I did was watch The
Avengers and sleep (something I had never done on a plane before). And now that
I have conquered the airport on my own I now feel as though I can get through
whatever this adventure throws at me.
HKx Thank you Paige, Arianna, Eric, and Brandon for all of your help! I couldn't have asked for a better send of party.
