Today I leave on a trip to California to spend the weekend hiking in Yosemite National Park. I have an Accounting exam in class today and then tonight I fly to San Francisco. Tomorrow, Wednesday, I’ll spend the morning and afternoon in the city by myself while my friends are working and around evening time we’ll head to Yosemite so we can start hiking first thing Thursday morning. Saturday afternoon we’ll head back to San Francisco and probably go out for dinner and drinks. My flight back to Florida is at 8:00pm on Sunday so I’ll have one last day in SF to go around before I wake up Monday morning in FL with a full day of classes, including another exam.
Flying alone is one of my favorite things to do so I’m really looking forward to flying tonight. I have a layover in Washington, DC so it’ll be a 2 hour flight with a 45 minute layover, and then a 6hr flight cross country. I always say to myself that I’m going to start reading a good book or I’m going to study for school, but most often I typically do nothing more than stare off into space out the window with endless thoughts. Or if I’m not in a window seat then I stare off at no place specific. I very rarely listen to music or have a headset on and I hardly ever watch TV unless it’s a JetBlue flight on the East Coast which I don’t fly often. So tonight I look forward to another day of flying because California is one of my favorite places to visit and knowing that I’ll be waking up in a 15th floor apartment in downtown SF with the city at my fingertips for the day makes me a very happy person!
