this was way better/worse than travel in Europe

Whew. I’m here. My stuff isn’t, but we’ll take care of that later. Here is a brief overview of the last few days for me.

-4.5 hours on a bus (that REEKED of the bathroom for approximately the last hour of the trip (somebody had dropped a bomb))

-5 hours in a car from D.C. to Raleigh

-1.5 hours in a car from Raleigh to Greenville (keep this figure in mind)

*****BOUGHT A CAR*****

-9 (NINE) hours driving from Greenville to Raleigh. What the heck? Snow. We don’t know what we’re doing when that happens. Although apparently everybody thought it would be a great idea to just get in the car and go somewhere…anywhere.

Ok, so some words of wisdom from my adventures:

1. Don’t EVER use the bathroom on a bus. Just don’t. If you don’t, and if you can get other people not to either, then the bathroom won’t smell, and you won’t all be subject to it for hours. And neither will anybody else. Let’s spread the word.

2. Friends are great. Friends who drive 5 hours to get you are gold, silver, platinum, and diamonds all hand-crafted into a brooch. They deserve a medal.

3. It should only take 1.5 hours to get from Raleigh to Greenville or vice versa.

4. has a 10-day forecast. Look at it. If it’s going to snow, go ahead and stock up on bread and milk and cake (don’t forget the cake). Don’t wait until the day it’s going to snow. And if it’s going to snow, don’t go anywhere. Just stay home. Don’t go to work. You don’t need the money that badly. Well maybe you do, but think real hard about it: Will it be worth it when it takes you 7 hours to get across town later on that night?

Ok, interview is today at 4:00. PRAY.

I’m out.

I'm told that I'm cleverly stupid, and that's why people are friends with me. And here I thought it was because I was so dang cute...

  1. What kind of car did you get? Drive it up to Alaska and I’ll teach you how to drive on ice. You can teach the Tundra Wookies to speak English.
