So today is the day!! I a few short hours I will be at the airport alone. I have a plan and am mostly confident I won’t miss my flight or get on the wrong plane. I am terrified I will end up on the wrong plane!!! I have books to read on my flight and I’m almost all packed…
Packing for 8 days is a nightmare! I have packed and repacked and reevaluated my suitcase 3 times!! The weather is colder where I am going between 50 and 60 degrees, so I need layers., but do I really need 2 David Bowie T-shirts? Yes, yes I do. How many black tank tops do I need to make outfits? Is 3 too many? Onto the shoes…It might rain so I need boots or something wet feet is no fun! I also need cute wedge sandals. I need workout shoes and I’m wearing flip flops to the airport because it is about 90 degrees where I am and flip flops come off easy. I need workout clothes, jeans, pajamas, I don’t have a lot of cold weather clothes. I’m bringing 5 sweaters but most of them need something underneath them, hence the black tank tops. I’m bringing a light jacket. I’m bringing skin care products and makeup and hair products!! just the essentials though. I have so much stuff!! I’m going to take it all out again and try to eliminate some more things. I am spinning out!! Can you tell I’m nervous?
Okay The regular sized suitcase can’t possibly fit everything I need!! I could pack 2, but I don’t want to seem high maintenance! I am high maintenance, I just don’t want to look it. So the solution was 1 huge suitcase!! I can fit inside this one with room to spare! It probably weighs more than I do. I’m so afraid of forgetting something important!! I am afraid of getting lost at the airport or losing my luggage.
I’m filled with anxiety, ( duh, right) but I am really excited to see my friends!! I know I’m going to have the very best time!!
Wish me luck!!
