After waking up at 2 AM to a phone call telling me my flight’s cancelled, a $127 cab ride to another airport, carrying 150 lbs of crap to check-in, hustling to my second departure at O’Hare alone, and flying a TINY plane into Madtown, I officially feel like I’ve entered adulthood. Hello, Wisconsin.
It’s the last day of my California adventure. There are no words to describe how unforgettable this time has been, but there is something I want to say before I come back home.
What I fear most about going home is looking back at all the pictures and knowing it all is now just a memory, because I want it to be my life. I know when I get home I’m going to hear a lot of “You’re so lucky, I’m so jealous!” and I think many will say I’ve changed. Well, I HAVE changed. I’m more relaxed and cultured; however, I’m not lucky, and you shouldn’t be jealous. I worked my ass off in high school to save money for this. I thought ahead. I’ve always known I wanted to travel, so I made it happen. Traveling is something anybody can do; it takes some planning, but honestly it’s just a plane ticket. Money will come and go, but experiences and memories are what change you and teach you. There’s a whole world out there besides just your hometown. My pictures and Facebook statuses have shown that for three months, and I intend for my life to demonstrate that as well. California is not a goodbye; it’s a see you later, and I promise I’ll be back soon <3
I can conquer the world but I’ll always be scared of saying goodbye :’/ #sad
