Airport Struggles as Told by Twitter

Some people must really hate airports.

Airport Struggles as Told by Twitter

So I am currently at the airport and still have 45 minutes before I have to board my plane. What better time is there to write an article about airports than now? Here are airport experiences as told by the twitter account 'The Airport Struggle' (@airportstruggle). (The authors of this account must be very, very annoyed with flying though so just keep that in mind:

1. When your airline doesn't welcome you.

In my experience, this only happens when flying within the US or at least from the US. Everywhere else that I have flown from, they greet everyone. The US needs to step up their game.

2. When you get hungry.

I just had a burrito bowl and it was only slightly more expensive than at Chipotle.. plus you could totally get a salad or smoothie at most airports. Your decision, Mr. The Airport Struggle.

3. Dress for success.

True. No one has time to dress nicely when you're going to sit in an airplane for 12 hours. You're going to want to be comfy. Unless of course, you are one of the unfortunate business people who have to be dressed for their meetings. Sweatpants are awesome.

4. When you have to praise the Lord.

Without it, I wouldn't be writing this article last minute. I would also not be able to watch Netflix and that would be very sad.

5. When you hit the jackpot.

Some people can sleep on airplanes, some people absolutely cannot and other are in between. But no one can disagree with this tweet. The flight will go by in a blast. The only unfortunate thing is that you miss the awesome movies at the in-flight entertainment when you sleep the whole time (that's what I tell myself because I can never fall asleep).

6. When you just can't figure out what zone you're in.

I had never heard of the zone system until I flew home the first time from college. In Germany you get to board your plane by seat rows (last rows go first). Pretty logical. However, if you do have to go through the zone system like I will in 20 minutes, then just please make sure you look at your boarding pass. It's not that hard and everyone will get on the plane in time.

7. When you struggle to follow rules.

Not quite sure why this happens but it certainly is a phenomenon. Maybe it's just that some people don't fly very often and then don't know the 'proper airport etiquette' or maybe people have other things in their minds. It can certainly become a struggle.

On that note, airports can get really, really annoying. Especially when things don't work or the AirTrain between terminals in Newark gets stuck and you have to walk on the tracks outside, far above the ground, escorted by the police in a snow storm (true story, bro). But you should be excited because you get to go somewhere new (or you're just coming back from a new place) and that means you don't have to stay in one place for forever. Just try to live with it.

Happy summer everyone!

For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
