Air Delays .

As the title of this entire blog is "Simply, Life," the topic of this post is fitting. My flight was delayed twice, and it's possible now that I might miss my connecting flight. In fact, that likelihood is that I will indeed miss it. Funny though, because I texted one of my friends, and said "it's okay, just life" in response to his condolences about my delayed flight. As of right now, I'm hoping that we can get off the ground early enough (due to the grand total of maybe 20 people who decided to stay on the flight). It is in fact possible that I could still make my second flight, and I'm praying that that is the case.

The situation is not ideal, but as I've said before, I know God would never put me in a situation that I couldn't handle. I've been up all night before, I've sat in airports before, etc. It will be a new record, though, if I spend the night in the Atlanta airport. I believe the grand total of travel time will be around 23 hours, including the drive from Charlotte back to Clemson.

And this, folks, is why we schedule flights the day before break ends, and not the day of. It's so worth it, and these are the types of things that you have to be prepared for when you book your flight in the first place. Delays are what they are, and they happen, whether due to someone's mistakes or just inclement weather. But fear not, the airline will do their best to get you to where you need to be as soon as possible. I'm staying patient, and staying positive. And I know that with both those things, I'll be home in no time.


  1. Planes take all the control away from us and leave us following in their wacky directions for the day. We are trapped, but we can still enjoy life. It's awesome that you blogged during this chaotic time.

  2. delays do happen. and sometimes in the most unexpecting time. but, mostly i just roll with it.


Would love to hear what you are thinking. Leave a comment!
