I Have A Love/Hate Relationship With Traveling Because It Brings Out The Good And Bad In Everyone

There is positives and negatives to travel.

I Have A Love/Hate Relationship With Traveling Because It Brings Out The Good And Bad In Everyone
Jessica Fisher

Labor Day weekend, my mom and I traveled to Houston to visit my family. I haven't been on an airplane since I was 9 years old. There was a mixture of excitement and worry because of all the issues with planes on the news. The actual trip and plane ride was not the issue.

I have always been a person who loves to take car trips. I love to look at the landscape of different states as I travel from one to the next. But the trips in the car are far too long and there is nowhere to go. Everyone that is riding in the car together are all stuck together. So if you get on someone's nerves within the first hour of the trip (someone in my family/friends usually does) than it is a very long trip.

Much like a car trip, there is nowhere to go on the plane. The upside to traveling by plane is that you get to your destination quicker than you would by car or train. There are downsides because sometimes there is really bad weather and turbulence. There are way more positives to traveling by plane than there are negatives. Traveling by plane is more relaxing because you just sit there and enjoy the ride.

I am a person who would love to say that I fall asleep on long car rides or plane rides, but unfortunately, that is not the case for me. My family makes fun of me because they say long trips fuel my energy. That could be true. I am a person who gets overly excited about a lot of things and travel happens to be one of them. I spend most of my time talking and looking out the window. For me, it does not matter the mode of transportation because I love to ride in the car, on the plane, and even on the train. I love to look out the window and take pictures of the landscape as we drive through different cities and states.

I went to Houston, Texas Labor Day weekend and we had to fly. The flights were not that bad. I think we only had one or two bumpy flights and that's because we ran into some weather. I am a person who is crazy for air travel because it shortens any trip.

My only complaint about the trip is that when flying to Atlanta, before heading to Houston, the guy who sat next to me was not friendly at all. He didn't say a word to us at all, even when we got on the plane and sat down. Then when I started to take selfies on the plane he had the nerve to look at me like I was weird. Realistically, this only bothers me because I am a super friendly person and I know that at 8:30 in the morning not everyone is as friendly as me, but you can still try. Coming back the girl who sat next to me was very friendly.

I love to travel so much that I wouldn't mind becoming a flight attendant. They wear comfortable shoes and they get to travel to different places. The idea of traveling across the United States and the world seems like a lot of fun to me.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
