I hope it’s not bad luck to quote John Devner for this blogpost’s title considering that he ended up dying in a plane crash…
But his lyrics ring true. I really am ready to go. I’m sitting in my living room, drinking coffee, taking one final moment to relax before leaving. I’m already a little tired, which is both a good and a bad thing: it’s probably not the best idea to begin a two-day long journey already sleep deprived, but then again, I’m going to have about twenty hours of flight time, not including layovers, in which to sleep.
I’ve decided to leave my iPhone at home for this trip. I was debating bringing it to use in the airports, but I decided that I like the idea of being unplugged from the world- at least the world of cell phones- for two weeks. I don’t want anything distracting me from really focusing on the experience.
My dad is letting me know that it’s time to leave, so HERE WE GO!
