11 Thoughts Every Anxious Flyer Has Before Their Flight

I've never flown by myself. I've flown with my dog multiple times, twice with my sister, and once with an ex. I've flown two-hours from Tallahassee to Miami and once flew to Chicago, another two-hour flight. What might seem like a quick flight for some actually feels like a lifetime for me.

I hate flying. I'd rather drive eight hours in traffic than hop on a plane. The mere thought of a flight gives me nightmares days before I'm due to take off. Flying solo, especially, gives me all sorts of anxiety.

I've just flown from Tallahassee to Houston by myself, which doesn't sound like much, but this was the ultimate test for me.

These are the 11 thoughts running through my mind and the minds of every other anxious flyer.

"Can I take this on my flight?"

"OMG, what if I miss my flight?"

"This airport is huge, how the hell do I know where to go?"

"If I look anxious or nervous, TSA is going to think I'm hiding something!"

"OMG, why is TSA being mean to me? I don't know what to do!"

"I can't put my headphones on because I'll miss the important announcements."

"Is chewing gum on airplanes still a thing?"

"I have to pee really badly but I'm too nervous to pee on this flight."

"Is the plane about to crash or is the turbulence really intense?"

 "What if my luggage didn't get on the plane?"

 "What if I get on the wrong plane or end up at the wrong airport?"

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
