7 Things That Happen When Your Flight Gets Canceled

Are you like me and can’t get back to the East Coast before school starts this week? Did you watch the news all day Saturday saying, “It’s fine. It won’t be that bad. Last year Juno was all talk and no results”? I was saying things like that all day trying to convince my family (and myself) that I would still be flying out to NYC on Sunday. Well, right now I’m sitting in my parents' kitchen typing this, so you know it didn’t work out the way I had hoped. So here are the seven stages from panic to acceptance that happened when I found out my flight had been canceled.

1. Immediate Panic

"Nooo.” Internal cursing ensues.

2. Denial

Refreshes airline website a million times.

3. Anger

“I can’t believe this is happening to me! Why didn’t I change my flight to before the storm?! I knew this would happen” More internal cursing.

4. Acceptance

“Okay, it’s fine. I can’t control the weather. My professors will understand. It’s all good.”

5. More Panic

“AHHHHH!! But what if I miss something incredibly important?! What if I can’t get back ever?”

6. Many Phone Calls

Calls the airline. Calls friends in NYC. Calls ALL of my family members. Calls, calls, calls...

7. Actual Acceptance

“Welp. Nothing left to do.” Writes this article. Hangs out with family. Applies to jobs. Does actual work.

Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.
