What’ll Ya Have?

I’m home for winter break, now, and it feels SO good to be back! Yesterday was a really challenging day. I got up, ate breakfast with my roommate, and then he drove me to the airport (what a nice guy, right?) at 10am. That was the beginning to my long journey home, but it wasn’t necessarily horrible.

It started with my flight to Atlanta, which was at 11:25. It was on time and I ended up in Atlanta at around 12:40 which was INCREDIBLE. I, for one, do enjoy the frightening Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. It was incredibly busy, and it was my first flight where I actually had to wander around the airport to find baggage claim (I just used a carry-on when flying to D.C.) and I thought I was lost, but luckily I found my way around. My sister met me at the airport and picked me up, and we drove around Atlanta for awhile and ended up having lunch at The Varsity in downtown. It was my first time eating there, and it was pretty solid if I do say so myself! It’s the world’s largest drive in, and it has a lot of character, too.

A picture in relation to where The Varsity is located in relation to downtown...it was awesome.

Atlanta is probably right with Washington D.C. as my favorite city. It’s a close tie! But after we drove around for a while, she drove me to the bus station and I caught a Megabus to Knoxville, like I stated before. It’s so great to be back home – all I’ve done is lounge around and sleep all day to catch up because of the busy day I had yesterday! I fly back to Indy (& Butler) through Atlanta on the 12th, so I’m gonna try and make the most of my time I have while being home!

Struggle (not so mega)Bus Part 2

Okay, I’ve been away from my computer for so long now that I haven’t been able to blog, and I sincerely apologize…but I am BACK! I want to say that this past week has been crazy, but that’s literally been every week of school for a few weeks now, so I guess I’m just now adjusting to the college lifestyle. Hah. But seriously, this past week I had 3 papers due, a pre-calculus exam, and I worked every day to make up hours. It’s been crazy.

I do just want to also blog about my past experience about coming back from home from Thanksgiving break last Sunday….I took the Megabus. It was not really that great of an experience, but luckily my friend Jensey and I took it together. It was a 7 hours trip from Nashville to Indy, connecting in Louisville. There was also a 30 minute break at a gas station that had a McDonald’s & Subway as well. It was a double-decker bus, which was interesting. But it got us to Indy on time, and I guess I would do it again if I had to…but thankfully my parents are picking me up for Winter Break!

The MegaBus we rode...it was traveling all the way to Chicago.

It was definitely an experience, that’s for sure!
