Airport adventure

At 5:15 this morning, as I was waiting to go through security at the airport, I realized that I didn't have my license.
I was a COMPLETE genius and didn't check before I left to make sure I had it. I had taken it out of my wallet yesterday at the CVS drive through, didn't put it back in, and left it in the seat of my car.
Apparently, I could have used my credit card for identification, but I did not learn this until after my mom was almost at the airport with the license.
My poor dad, who woke up at 4 a.m. to take me to the airport, was pacing the entire time.
I, SURPRISINGLY, stayed calm, even after I was still standing outside of security, without my license, after boarding for my flight began. That is unbelievable.
So, thank you to my mom who got to the airport just in time! I made the final boarding call and am sitting in Atlanta waiting for my flight to Chattanooga.

I thought that I would use this opportunity to blog, since I haven't in forever.
However, apparently this airport doesn't provide the courtesy of free Internet. So, I am writing this blog post on my phone, with my Verizon 3G Internet. I am not sure if this is normal, since I do not fly often, but I think it is ridiculous. Plane tickets cost a lot of money; the least they can do is provide Wi-Fi.
I'm actually not sure how people afford to fly over the holidays. A round-trip ticket from Charleston to Chattanooga, during the holiday season, costs $904.
I am extremely thankful for a family friend, who works for Delta, that helped me get a stand-by "buddy pass" ticket for almost just a tenth of that price. Otherwise, I would be driving to Tennessee today. And, I am also extreme thankful for my dad paying for the ticket as a reward for getting a 4.0 this semester.

So, that was my day so far.
Thank you so much, mama and daddy, for helping me out through the craziness early this morning. Love you :).

Oh, and I am going to Chattanooga to see my bff Katie Stephens :). I'm excited. :)
