Well it's Saturday and you know what that means... Yup, time to post my usual Thursday post two days late! Whoooo!
Today's installment is another travel edition.
Awesome: Cool wallpaper that's perfect for an iPhone outfit shot.
Awkward: Not having data to present at a conference.
Awesome: My boss funding me anyways so I could go and network and be inspired.
Awesome: Having my boarding pass sent to my phone.
Awkward: Having almost no battery on said phone.
Awesome: Have the battery last just long enough.
Literally. I scanned my boarding pass bar code and 15 seconds later, my phone died. Phew!
Awkward: Having my first flight delayed.
Awesome: Having a 3 hour layover before flight # 2. Yay for breathing room!
Awkward: On the other end, I found out that no, actually flight #2 was scheduled to board 30 minutes after I deplaned flight #1. AHHH!
Awesome: Flight #2 was delayed. Phew!
I gotta say, ignorance was bliss. I was only stressed for about 5 minutes.
Awesome: Traveling in a group.
Awkward: Being separated from my group on the connecting flight.
Awesome: Getting in 3 hours earlier than the rest of the group (Yay for not traveling at midnight!).
Awkward: The rental car was in their name. (Blah for having to wait 3 hours at the airport….)
Awesome: I ran into someone I knew from interviewing at another grad school who just happened to have a space in her car open up so she drove me to the rental house.
Awkward: Realizing I didn't have a key to the rental after my ride drove off…
Awesome: Finding a hidden one!
Awesome: Our rental has 6 beds!
Awkward: Our group has 11 people.
Awesome: I converted a closet into my own bedroom.
(these photos were taken on my iPhone using Photosynth
which is a free app. You can send them 3D style to people)
Awesome: Flight # 1 had all sorts of problems but the attendants handled everything well so I wrote a note and gave it to an elderly flight steward.
Awkward: He stood there and read it in front of me.
I guess I don't know what I was expecting…
