Fall’s Over, Christmas Is Around the Corner!

Welcome back Augie! How was Fall Break for everyone? Personally, mine was great! I got to go home to the good old Rocky Mountains in Colorado so that was fun. Getting out there was a trip to say the least! The flight was itself was great but the experience with the SOuthwest personnel at Midway was another story. First, I arrived at the airport for my 4 o’clock flight at around 11:30 in the morning. Did you know they will not let you check in or your bags more than 4 hours prior to your flight? Can someone please take a moment to explain why checking my bag more than 4 hours before my flight is a security risk? You have my bag, it’s not like I can tamper with it any longer! Silliness I tell you, silliness! Once 12:30 rolled around I proceeded to check in and make my way through security. Once arrived at the gate I sat around for about 4 hours, until I looked at the board saying my flight was delayed 25 minutes. An hour. An hour and a half. Finally the flight was delayed to 5:20. However, once I made it onto the plane it was all smooth sailing!
Once home, I saw my family, which was much needed after 10 weeks without them! And I got to see my dog, which was my highlight. Over break I saw my two best friends from home whom are still in high school finishing up their last year! That was exciting. On my last day I saw my best best friend. We’ve known each other for 18+ years and have never been more than 100 ft away from each other.

That's us from the Brad Paisley concert this summer!

Also on the last day, I also had an early Thanksgiving with my family since I will be unable to go home for actual Thanksgiving. SO much good food!
With that all said and done, I am back to the homestead! I’m looking forward to this term and hopefully blogging more! No actually I will be!

Regards and best wishes,
Andie

P.S. My roommate and our friends are YELLING hump day as well as a couple High School Musical songs and various rap songs….should I be worried?
