Jet Plane

OK, I made it to the Frankfurt airport via bus.
Checked in with my baggage.
Got to the first security check.
I walk up to the security counter, hand the police man my boarding pass…He asks for my passport.
He was a chipper male police man, who literally almost stamped it without even looking at my entry date…
and then he paused and started laughing.
I thought I was screwed.


“Have you been in Germany this whole time?”
(oh great here we go)


“Are you sure?”


“Maybe you’ve been to paris?”

-”uhhh no….”

“But, maybe you have?”

-”If you say so…sure…maybe”

“But, have you?”

-”Honestly, no, no I haven’t”

“Ok, maybe London? Sweden?”

-”:( no”

“OK Poland, you went to Poland you just maybe forgot, or didn’t realize it”


***Insert Hallelujah chorus***

-”ohhhh kayyyy”

“Maybe next time you should only stay three months unless you get another Visa” * winky face *

-”Yes, definitely, sorry, won’t happen again” *mumble mumble giggle giggle*

“Hope you enjoyed your stay, and your trip to Poland”

-”Thanks you so very very very very very very much”

“No, thank you, enjoy your flight”

*run away*


I could have kissed that man.
OK So now I am waiting outside of security check, as long as I make it through there I’m pretty much home free. Thank you Jesus.

I hope they start letting people in soon, waiting is making me anxious. I just want to get this 16 hour trip over with so I can eat some popcorn and play guitar. YaHoooo!

Made it to Dublin,
Airport security always makes me feel uncomfortable.
They are always throwing questions almost yelling at you and acting as if you’ve done something wrong.
I’d hate to NOT be a US citizen especially in that situation.

woooooooo So close.
I had to Recheck my baggage, which was fun considering I had to lug it all on a bus and almost fell off the bus because my one bag was so heavy. The bus driver was nice though and got up and helped me. haha

I got a gatorade and drank it all in one gulp. I am so thirsty and dehydrated and sleepy :(
But I will be home soon :)
Gonna board the plane in about an hour… Oh yay! I just want to be done flying and being so squished next to unfriendly people who won’t give me their biscuit even when they aren’t eating it. Hmmph! I am so so hungry.

This is me at 5am this morning

Another yucky rainy day in Frankfurt.
I woke up at 5 this morning and couldn’t fall back asleep. I’ve been organizing, purging, and attempting to be packed up and ready to leave early tomorrow morning.

I’m nervous about the flight home… Because I’ll definitely be questioned about my over staying my tourist Visa, I just hope the questioning doesn’t take so long that I miss my flight home. I’m going on the earliest bus to the airport to be as assured as I possibly can be, that I won’t miss it. I’ll be armed with tissues for my hysterical outburst if they even make me THINK I’ll miss it. Prayers would be awesome

I don’t have a scale, so I really hope my suitcase isn’t more than 50 pounds. I feel like I haven’t much since being here, and have even gotten rid of quite a few things.

New Items include:
* Coat- needed (ha)
* Sweater- free (thanks Camwon)
* Mary Janes-5 euros
* Converse-8 euros
* Backpack
* Jeans-free
* 3 Dresses-free

I’ve gotten rid of:
* 2 small suitcase full of clothing
* a pair of shoes (DC’s)
* Notebook
* Hat and Mittens

Fingers crossed.
I’ll be taking my rolley carry-on, duffle suitcase thing, and a back pack.

I can’t believe I didn’t get any souvenirs… I am an awful tourist in that aspect. I have pictures though :)

My to-do list:

✓ Wake up early
✓ Blog
☐ More packing
☐ Go on a walk (even if it is raining)
☐ Shower
☐ Put all liquid bathroom items into my checked baggage (so that I don’t forget and have to do it in line)
☐ Eat my last schnitzel in Germany (maybe some traditional apfel wein)
☐ Watch a movie (toy story? :)
☐ Hopefully get a good nights sleep
☐ Wake up
☐ Eat cookies for breakfast
☐ Drink instant coffee
☐ Braid my hair
☐ Head to the airport
☐ Hopefully board my flight that departs at 10:50 a.m. (4:50 a.m. in SC) for my 16 hour journey.

In other news, I have 3 interviews set up for thursday. Woo! Might make it 4 by the end of today. I’m excited.

Coming Home

OK booked my ticket for March 15th.

I’m pretty sad about missing the spring here in Germany, but another time maybe.

Glad to be going home to see my brothers and sisters.

Speaking of brothers and sisters, I had the worst nightmare of all time about my little brother Joey. :(

I can’t wait to play at the park with guitars, and Djembes you guys…oh and cooking!

Love you all, see you guys soon
