Leaving on a jet plane

I leave for Boston in a few hours. A few nights ago I was pretty anxious about flying alone. My dad’s a pilot. I’ve been on planes and all over the world since I was just hours old. But, I’ve hardly flown alone. I’m usually with a group or my family, or Aaron. I think the only time I remember flying alone was when Aaron and I had just started dating and I went out to Washington State to see my brand new cousin. Also to get my first tattoo in Canada. And my tongue pierced.
No wonder I haven’t flown alone since. My parents probably wouldn’t let me. Any way – I’m not anxious any more, just ready. I get anxious around people I don’t know, what do I do with my hands? Are they watching me walk? Do I look stupid, I wonder what they’re thinking – what they’re deciding about me and why I’m traveling alone.
Uh huh. I’m that neurotic in situations where I have no security. Remember the ki-ki? I thought so.
In short though, I’m all set to go – I’ve got my dirty magazines (Us, People), a couple books from the library, an iPod chalk full of my own music. I’m actually looking forward to being anonymous for a few hours. But mostly for what’s waiting for me at the end of this journey. Aaron. I miss Aaron.
Here’s to a great weekend in Boston – a wonderful start to my new year (my birthday is tomorrow) and a relaxing, recharging time with my man.

  1. Boston is great! It was a little rainy yesterday but we ventured into the city and got some great photos. Last night we went out to eat with our friends, Jodi and TJ, whom we’re staying with and celebrated my birthday. Jodi (yes, there are two of us) made me a chocolate cake that we all enjoyed once we got home. It’s been great out here – and we’re taking lots of photos. Aaron and I miss Jessica something terrible, him more than me at this point since being gone for more than a week but we’re really enjoying our vacation.
    Today we’ll go into Boston again and this afternoon meet back up with TJ and Jodi for some lunch and some more exploring.
    More later – bye!
