10 Thoughts I Have At The Airport
Wikipedia, Mumbai Airport

I love traveling. I love going out of the country, I love traveling domestically, I love road trips and everything in between. I basically grew up on a plane, either going to see family or skipping school for a week to travel with my mom on her adventurous work trips. You could say I lived very daringly and adventurously for a small child, but I liked it. I liked that I didn't know what I was going to do or where I was going to go. And even though airports are exciting, there are just so many thoughts going through my head. Not sure why, but it could be because of lack of sleep or too much coffee. Never anything in between (not surprised at myself, though). So in the spirit of Spring Break travels and being stuck in Newark Airport for several hours, let me take you through a journey inside my head. Shall we?

1. "It is too early."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F6359540361166882471598707285_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=200&h=a74b4ab69456aaa35dffbfb739f45be61f8a3438d97de8f942ced83e3395c5dd&size=980x&c=2044564553 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F6359540361166882471598707285_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D200%26h%3Da74b4ab69456aaa35dffbfb739f45be61f8a3438d97de8f942ced83e3395c5dd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2044564553%22%7D" expand=1]

This is the exact reason why I do not take 8 a.m. classes, but for some reason I do the same thing over and over again. Why?

2. "Who knew so many people loved being up this early."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F635954036867483583-130009557_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=954&h=a17c66368768af22d3cfc48105acff473de5c717154168fb4cb2992f38f2d49f&size=980x&c=1931464890 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F635954036867483583-130009557_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D954%26h%3Da17c66368768af22d3cfc48105acff473de5c717154168fb4cb2992f38f2d49f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1931464890%22%7D" expand=1]

I see so many people at the airport all happy and chipper except that it's 4 a.m. How? No amount of sleep can prepare me for this day. Never ever.

3. "Where is the Dunkin?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F6359540378109884751005990984_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=90&h=8cfdeaed26776ae0a0c546d0bd78cd60b237839e17ee609fce6ab5afe078f85c&size=980x&c=2468207934 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F6359540378109884751005990984_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D90%26h%3D8cfdeaed26776ae0a0c546d0bd78cd60b237839e17ee609fce6ab5afe078f85c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2468207934%22%7D" expand=1]

Dunkin is always a must. Their coffee over everything. You know you need Dunkin really bad if you have a mental break down at the gate. The struggle? Yeah, it's kind of real.

4. "If I get to the gate before everyone else does I can have an unhealthy amount of coffee and not be judged. Awesome!"

It's not an option. It's a necessity. Understand that. #CoffeeGangForLife.

5. "Someone took my unassigned assigned seat. Get with the program guys!"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F635954040308413549570983953_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=75&h=e1cb33a70e2f7cc8f2e978c33be0098cb50a0b7002e20cf5ee1464c864d628d9&size=980x&c=2490799853 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F635954040308413549570983953_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D75%26h%3De1cb33a70e2f7cc8f2e978c33be0098cb50a0b7002e20cf5ee1464c864d628d9%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2490799853%22%7D" expand=1]

Oh and the awkward part? Going to find your seat, seeing its taken and then standing there like a weirdo looking for a seat. Come on mad, #HowRude.

6. "Where is my boarding pass?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F6359540423349197391627253506_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=794&h=d7195fe139261ce4712cf4c01d9bfc0e831be636299812de14f2ab560342b9c5&size=980x&c=2783268302 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F6359540423349197391627253506_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D794%26h%3Dd7195fe139261ce4712cf4c01d9bfc0e831be636299812de14f2ab560342b9c5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2783268302%22%7D" expand=1]

This happens at least 10 times a trip. I've never actually lost my boarding pass but I've been really close to it. Typical me though, not surprised.

7. "If I hear one more crying baby ..."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F635954042770230984-1644123573_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=747&h=765cdba1084d1dee3319cef9d2886bb82b75917d689ab610304a580a271cef3f&size=980x&c=1128797464 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F635954042770230984-1644123573_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D747%26h%3D765cdba1084d1dee3319cef9d2886bb82b75917d689ab610304a580a271cef3f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1128797464%22%7D" expand=1]

Ah, the perfect staple to a flight. The symphony of baby whaling. What a sweet sound. Not.

8. "Why is the flight crew always late and holding my flight up yet they get to skip security?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F635954043329631113-684956815_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=831&h=d1125693b7ce1e4fe30576f27343234f7af1005f9ae134a0cf6800ca95f728f8&size=980x&c=2934740102 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F635954043329631113-684956815_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D831%26h%3Dd1125693b7ce1e4fe30576f27343234f7af1005f9ae134a0cf6800ca95f728f8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2934740102%22%7D" expand=1]

I always see flight crew skipping the lines that I have no choice but to wait in, but these people get all the privileges, but they still make me late? Grandma is waiting for me!

9. "I forgot so many things as home. I know it."So. Many. Things. Every single time.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F6359540817235431771507206845_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=184&h=0cd4aa3c1e9e9a313cd1d6672384d89062171769b961bc4c80748010f2d926a0&size=980x&c=2496745322 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F6359540817235431771507206845_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D184%26h%3D0cd4aa3c1e9e9a313cd1d6672384d89062171769b961bc4c80748010f2d926a0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2496745322%22%7D" expand=1]

And its funny because I keep checking myself to double check and after I do I still forget things. I have too many things. *sigh*

10. "WHERE IS MY BOAR- okay its in my hand we're good to go. *whew*"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F04%2F635954045633062959-1375284333_200.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=578&h=9447e6d0389ddf87ec744b164921a8382fc1f0dc9b615c8940cccf681e7c3804&size=980x&c=3521046069 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F04%252F635954045633062959-1375284333_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D578%26h%3D9447e6d0389ddf87ec744b164921a8382fc1f0dc9b615c8940cccf681e7c3804%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3521046069%22%7D" expand=1]


Okay, I'm good. But now I really need to get my life together. This happens way too often.

So in a nutshell, going to the airport is a disaster.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements. I can assure that all tall people are tired of being asked what the weather is like "up here", but here are a few other things we don't want to hear anymore.
