Boston- Departure

Here I was...the airport. Only a week ago had I gotten the fanastic tickets for Boston (and my first flight alone) I was so excited, I couldn't contain myself. Once we had made it through the usual airport procedures, I was practically jumping. My brother was impatient, and my mom, going on and on about how much she would miss me. But none of that mattered, all I cared about was the lights and tall buildings, a city.
Finally it was time, they called for my flight and we made our way to the door leading to the tunnel which lead to the plane. After we clarified that I was a minor traveling alone, they gave me a paper that i wrapped around my wrist and the flight attendant told me she would help me board the plane. I hugged my mom tight and we said our goodbyes...then that was it, I was on my way to the plane. Once I had sat down I could already feel the rush of the city. "finally" I thought to myself as I heard the roar of the plane, and we were off.

How was it flying by yourself?
I have a confession to make: I've never been on a plane before.

I'm so excited to read the rest of the series!

It's so hard to laugh it off when it's your own family that's say things about you to your face. Even when it's behind my back, I still hear it. The last time they did something like this to me was on Christmas Day. I was downstairs taking my merry old time getting ready (I was in not hurry). Everyone else was upstairs. I walked out of my bathroom only to hear them talking about my past and with my grandparents in the room.

A few minutes later my dad finally came downstairs to find my crying in my room.

When it's my family, I cry very easily. When it's other people, it's easier for me to say, "Screw it. You don't know anything."

I'm just finding the whole mentality of putting othres down to make yourself feel better very unsettling. You're right: What does it accomplish? Nothing. That's not going to help you later in life, and it's not going to solve any problems.

Eh I would keep rambling, but I'm being kicked off the computer = [

Thank you so much for reading my blog!
