5 Things To Hate About Transfer Flights

So I had the recent joy of taking an international transfer flight alone and boy was it a trip… If you're like me and kinda stress over a perfect flight, you've probably done this when prepping for the journey.

1. Booking the damn flight

Finding out that there is no direct flight to your destination, or taking multiple flights is cheaper could be so damn frustrating. Once you have mentally prepared yourself to your fate, you start looking at all the flights, their arrivals, departures, the amount of time you could spare if one of the flights was not on time.

You know... The fun stuff.

2. Cross referencing the flight details

After you pick the flights that would ensure you actually reach your destination. The next step is looking into baggage limits and transfer services. You also might start obsessively chart a few similar flights a few days ahead of your flight. Oh No, that's just me? Oh well, moving on.

3. The reminders to check in all the way through

One thing I definitely fear is not being able to board my flight mid journey cause I couldn't check in all the way through. Hence the incessant reminders that begin 2 days before travel start date.

The reminder to check in at the counter and to make sure my luggage is checked in all the way through.

4. Grabbing your luggage if it’s not the same airline

If you're not traveling via the same airline for the entire trip, you have to vigilant and pick up your luggage when you arrive in transit and re-check it... Oh, Fun!

This is another nightmare of itself that I cannot begin.

5. Hoping your baggage makes way to your destination…

Once you finally reach your destination, you now have to wait uneasily at the luggage carousel praying your luggage actually made it through and you can be off your merry way. If not you wait till the last bag sign and look around in a panic for 10 minutes, give up on your bad luck and trot off to baggage services to file a complaint.

Once all this is over you have to repeat if this was a holiday trip… sigh

Happy Travels Weary Travel.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
