Hey guys! I'm officially in Rhode Island, but instead of telling you about my day today which didn't include much except for seeing an old friend, going to my old elementary school, and going to the grocery store, I decided to write about my plane trip out here. I packed a composition notebook in my carry on so that I could write about my trip and post it on blogspot later!
There was a note pad in his seat back pocket that read, "From The Desk of Dan Lenney" which is how we first got talking. I introduced myself and we talked all the way to Baltimore about his job, his family, and other such things. He made adds for stores and newspapers, saying it was pretty good pay, but that it was not his passion. He began talking to me about getting into a good college if I can, even if I was unsure about what I wanted to be. He told me that getting into a good, stable college will help me later on even if I decided to change careers! I asked him what he would do, what his passion would be if he could go back and change his career and further his education. He told me that if he could, he would work for Habitat for Humanity and told me that his passion was working for charity. It was a real eye-opener for me as a teenager because I could feel this man's passion for helping others. He gave me some great advice on colleges I should check out andI don't think I will ever forget him. God bless you Dan Lenney wherever you are!
After landing in Baltimore to get an iced tea from Starbucks, I boarded the plane for Warwick, Rhode Island. I got to see the bright lights of New York City and flew over the Atlantic Ocean! It was great to see four smiling faces waiting for me once I got to the baggage claim., I was so tired and had really bad jet lag.
Once I called my Mom, and bestfriends Samm, Mikey, and Jordan, I went straight to bed. I have no idea what tomorrow will hold for me, but I'm praying that it will be something good. Ta Ta for now bloggers! Hope you enjoyed reading all about my confusing day of flying. God delivered me to Warwick, Rhode Island and he will be sending me home safely in twelve days!
I wrote this post on June 3, 2009 and finally had time to post it today:) Just to give up a quick update, I have already had once sleepover, rented a red box movie, been to Field Day at my old Elementary School, fought to keep my old principal from being involuntarily moved to a new school, painted two 8 year old girls nails, gotten Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee twice, gone to Sam's Club, gone to the grocery store twice, been hit on by two guys, played Twister, jumped on my trampoline, and been joy riding with my friend Mia!
I MISS CALIFORNIA THOUGH! I CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK:D
