“DING” “Attention, Flight 237 for Sydney, Australia will be leaving shortly, all passengers please board.”
I hear the announcement the second I step out of the public restroom. I was practically vibrating from excitement all morning, and now it’s time. After almost two years of saving, planning, and blind hope, I finally get to have an adventure that I will never forget; no limits, no supervisor, no regrets. My family was a bit skeptical of this decision, but they supported me. Me being a financially-struggling, workaholic shut in of a college student, this was going to be the biggest highlight of my life.
