22 Thoughts You Have When Going To An Airport

The airport can be a place of quiet ease or serious panic.

Flying is an interesting experience, to say the least. From beginning to end, the experience can be quite stressful and draining. From arriving at the airport to boarding the plane, so many things can make flying taxing. Here are some thoughts you will have when getting ready to fly. No matter the event leading up go getting to your final destination, I wish you a smooth ride through TSA and in the air.

1. Please tell me my bag is under 50lbs.

2. Okay, the family of 17 flying to Disney for the first time, we get it. You're excited.

3. Where’s my I.D. and boarding pass?!

4. Ok, it’s in my pocket, I’m good. Maybe if I move it to my backpack, I won’t lose it.

5. Why is everyone also flying at 5 am?

6. Who picked 3.4 ounces as a safe amount? Why not 4 ounces?

7. TSA can kiss my butt

8. Oh dang, I’m getting close to the front of the line.

Where’s my I.D. and boarding pass? I left it in my pocket... great.

9. I look nervous. They’re noticing. Play it cool.

10. Oh. Duh. They’re in my backpack!

11. Why is it that kids and the elderly don’t have to take off they’re shoes but I do?

They are just as likely to be hiding stuff in them as me in flip flops

12. Damnit I never make it through without being pulled to the side

13. The TSA lady touched my boobs...

14. Ok made it through TSA... I can breathe again.

15. Where is gate C34? Oh, it’s probably by gate C33

16. Lmao, it’s not even close to C33...

17. Ok let’s find some coffee

18. Coffee is $6. Never mind then.

19. I’ll just live off a complimentary soda and peanuts

20. Yay time to board... jk I’m not first class.

Guess I'll wait.

21. No sir, I actually am strong enough to lift my own bag.

22. Let get this mofo off the ground!

To The Girl Who Hasn't Been Herself Lately

Your spark return, and you will shine like you were meant to.

Life gets tough. Life gets too much to handle sometimes, and those times make you stronger. However, right now, it seems like you have lost yourself.

It’s difficult when you catch yourself not being you. When you do something or act a certain way and just wonder, “what did I do to deserve this? Why is this happening? When will it get better?” The way you’re feeling is not so much that you’re unhappy, you just feel weird.

Your day will come. I promise you. This is just a phase.

The day you realize how much you have grown from this point in time will be your reward. It is so hard to see now, and I feel your pain.

Your light will return to you. Your pure bliss moments, they are seeking you. Your laughter where your tummy aches is in your reach.

Our moods change far too often for us as humans to understand why, but the encounters you make every day have this effect on us.

You must remember the pure happiness you experienced before your first heartbreak, before the first friend became someone you thought they weren’t, before you lost your innocence. That was a time of true joy as you had not a care in the world for the things that would harm you. Better yet, you didn’t have the option to experience them because you were just a child.

The world can be an ugly place, and your attitude towards life can change every day. One thing is for certain: you did not lose who you are internally. We all put on a face for the world. For the people who we try to impress. For the life we want to live. For the things we want to achieve.

Your definitive personality is still in the works. Believe it or not, it always will be. Times like this change us for the better even though we can’t see it.

Your happiness will return. You will be a better, stronger version of you. In fact, you will be the best version of you yet.

Once this phase is over, you will be okay. This I promise you.

An Open Letter To The Friend Feeling Left Out...You Will Find Your Place

It may not feel like it now, but eventually you will find the people that make you happy.


When I first came to college, I was most excited to make new friends, people that I could make new memories with for the next four years of my life. The first couple of weeks of school I met many new people. I made a bunch of new friends, all of them with their own unique and lovable personalities. I even thought I had found a group I belonged in.

But as the semester went by, I started to feel myself beginning to be isolated. Trips to the dining hall were being made without me, and I stopped receiving invites to the movie nights. I would try and tag along if I could, but I still couldn't help feeling like I wasn't wanted there.

I immediately began thinking I had done something. Did I say something mean? Did I do something to upset them? I couldn't stop thinking about it. I then decided to do the adult thing and ask if there was something that was wrong. Maybe it was just a misunderstanding in communication.

When I finally mustered up the courage to ask them, they responded back with, "We're not mad at you. We just feel like our personalities don't go well together."

At first, I was kind of hurt. I had finally thought I had found a group, only to be pushed away because they didn't like my personality. But then I started thinking… why would I want to be friends with a group of people like that?

I began spending more time with my other friends and got even closer with them. They started inviting me to dinner and to different events around campus. I began to feel like I had found my place again.

As I look back, I wonder why I spent so much time with people who never seemed to want me there. The entire time, I could have been spending time with the people who wanted me around. From here on forward, I plan to only surround myself with the people who make me feel happy.

So, to the person out there who feels like the forgotten friend, get out there and start looking for new ones. Wasting your time and energy on people who don't want to be with you won't get you anywhere. Invest your time into finding new people. You will find your place with the right friends.

And as for me...
