What I've Learned Round 2

Here is what I learned...again.
10.) Taking Benadryl helps take away the head exploding feeling.
9.) Your luggage will weigh more at the end of the trip than it did in the beginning.
8.) Flying in lounging clothes is so much better.
7.) Jetlag does go away.
6.) Female pilots rock!
5.) Being in an isle seat is not neccessarily a good thing.
4.) Definately check the monitors at the airport for gate departures (apparently they change often).
3.) Little old men share awesome stories.
2.) I am most certain the woman sitting behind me on the opposite side of the plane had Swine Flu...okay maybe it was just a cold, but thank God for all the handy wipes I brought with me!
1.) You may see someone famous at the airport...I saw Kanye West! We were going through security at the same time. TV really does alter your apparence!

What I've Done So Far

1.) Tuesday 5/12: Arrived, went to dinner at Bravo in Pearl Ridge.
2.) Wednesday 5/13: Went to Schofield Army Post, Dole Plantation, and North Shore beach where I saw Sea Turtles.
3.) Thursday 5/14: Chilled out at "home," watched Lakeview Terrace (good movie!).
4.) Friday 5/15: Went to Ko'olina beach and saw a seal in the water! Then we went to dinner at the Dixie Grill and I had a mai Tai!
5.) Saturday 5/16: Celebrated Bailee's un-birthday at the bowling alley in Schofield. Met some of our Heros and their wives. Went to dinner at Haiwa Joes then walked along the shore and looked at the boats. Got home and watched Sam's Lake (I'd give this one only 1 star, it sucked!)
6.) Sunday 5/17: Went to the Pancake House for breakfast then went to the Swap Meet. This was the coolest place ever! I got a ton of things to bring back home. Then we did the hike at Manouah Falls. Went to Bubba Gumps (Forrest Gump's restaurant) at the outdoor mall and had a Blue Hawaiian.
7.) Monday 5/18: Going to a Lulua tonight! Yeah Baby.

Humble Experience

Only a few days left in Hawaii and then I'm off for home. I'm saddened that I have to leave this beautiful place, but at the same time there's some thing so comforting about home. Plus, I miss Nehemiah so much and I can't wait to see his smiling face. Today Mary and I went on a hike to a waterfall. It was so challenging! I didn't think I could make it all the way up, but I did! It was such an accomplishment. I wanted to turn around, but Mary wouldn't let me. Once we got to the top it started raining and on the way back down it was pouring. My legs are sore and I'm beat, but I made it to the top of the mountain on my first hike. Once we left the mountain and headed toward the beach in Waikiki, I was in awe at the sight of all the Coach and Prada stores! I looked on the other side of the street and I was even more amazed. There were homeless people all across the beach. I guess I'm sheltered seeing that back home there are no obvious homeless people. My heart hurt for these people. I may not be able to rescue these people, but at least I can pray for them.

10 Things I've Learned

While traveling to Hawaii I learned some very interesting things, here they are...
10.) Don't wear jeans on a 12 hr flight!
9.) Your head feels like it's going to explode on take off.
8.) You need to drink water, which consequently makes you pee and people get pissed when
you keep climbing over them!
7.) Never buy airport food, you'll go broke before you get to your destination!
6.) People don't follow the no cell phone rule until an attendant yells at them to turn them off!
5.) Talk to people, they have intersting stories (I made two friends, one of whom I will fly back
to Detroit with).
4.) Belts and watches will not pass through security.
3.) Gay flight attendants are frickin' awesome!
I don't want to pass on judgement on LA, but here goes...
2.) the airport looks like a mall and everyone seems to be over dressed
1.) There is definately tension between NY girls and LA girls! NY girls are classified
as true friends while LA girls are only friends with people who can do something
for them. I was also told that Californians are materialistic snobs!
I can't prove if this theory is true regarding Californians because I only know one and she doesn't fit the profile, but once you start talking about New York and California people offer their opinions and don't shut up!

Thursday, May 7, 2009

Today is the National Day of Prayer. I have been praying throughout the morning and I feel so good. I'm a bit overwhelmed with life (both personal and professional), but I am seeking God and therefore I cannot be disappointed. I may not understand the "why's" that life brings, but I definately understand that in life we have seasons and each season brings about a new discovery of who I am in Christ. Thank God that the new has finally come!
2 Corinthians 5:17 (New International Version)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Happy Friday

Today is my most favorite day of the week despite the fact that it is not a pay week! Friday means I can stay up late tonight and sleep the day away tomorrow, which won't be happening because I will start packing for Hawaii. I can't believe that in 11 days I'll be with my Mary once again! I know we're going to act like babies when we see each other. Lots of hugs and tears, but that's what keeps our first grade friendship so strong. I miss her so much. I'm getting teary just thinking about this grand reunion. Happy Friday.
