Can’t wait til EUROPE…where I won’t give a damn about stuff going on in the U.S.!

Day 1- May 29:
So yesterday’s travels seemed to take forever! I got up at 5:00am to finish packing (sorry, I’m a procrastinator!) and then we left at like 6:10. Allison gave me a ride because she loves me! There was some traffic, but we got to the airport around 6:45. Unfortunately, I had to stand in a long line to check one bag! I hate checking luggage! Anyways, I the line moved fast and then the security line was pretty fast too. Everything was on time, so we left for Phoenix, AZ around 8:20. I got to Phoenix around 10:30 (because of the time difference) and had lunch by myself. I felt like Carrie from Sex and the City, sitting there enjoying lunch all alone. I can officially say I’ve done that now. And it was nice.
I left Phoenix at 12:30 and got to San Francisco around 2:30. Too bad I just missed the airport bus I needed, so then I had to wait til 3:30 for the next one. San Francisco is cold! …compared to Baltimore at least. The bus ride was very nice. I saw the Golden Gate Bridge and some other cute stuff. I also saw Alkatraz, which Matt said we can go see. I think its creepy and cool. The hills and landscapes are gorgeous. I also want to watch The Princess Diaries because of the hilly streets off the main road.
I arrived at the airport stop around 5:00pm. Matt was there like 1 minute after me. He brought me flowers! The hug was sooo great. Just like at the off-base liberty day during boot camp. He smelled so good and felt so great. What a cutie. Ahh he looked so amazing! You know what though, I didn’t cry. I think that’s pretty cool :)
We headed into downtown Petaluma for a bit. It is a very cute little town. I would totally live there, if it was cheap! We sat on a bench for a little bit and chilled. Ugh, I miss Matt so much at home. We went into a really cool bookstore. I wanted to buy a book for me to read while Matt is in class. I got the Chronicles of Narnia for $1.50! Good sale I think. There is a shoe store I really want to go back and check out. I think they have some good walking shoes. Then we got a quick bite… fast food :/ It was good, but ever since watching Food, Inc. it makes me feel weird. Then we went to Good Will. I got some jackets because I totally did NOT listen to Matt when he said how cold it gets here.
Then we headed back tot he base. He showed me around and it is really very nice here. It is like a college campus honestly. I’m glad that it is nice, it makes me feel better knowing he is at such a cool place. I met some of his friends for a minute and then we got our room. You know what happened then ;)
We were going to go out, but I was SERIOUSLY exhausted and passed out. I got up at 5:00am in Baltimore, or 2:00 am here! Traveling is exhausting too. Overall, good first day :)
Public service announcement.
Okay people of the world (Yes, the entire world),
1. DO NOT ASK WOMAN IF SHE IS PREGNANT, EVEN IF YOU WOULD BET YOUR LIFE ON IT THAT SHE IS.
WHY? BECAUSE THERE IS NO FUCKING NEED FOR YOU TO SAY ANYTHING.
If a woman wants to bring up the fact that she is pregnant, she will. If not, who knows, she could:
-have already had the baby
-be a surrogate
-be putting the baby up for adoption
-had a miscarriage
- HELL, she might just have a fucking tummy? Sorry, not all women are fucking sickly thin.
SO STFU. STOP ASSUMING SHIT.
2. Remember your parents teaching you this old adage? “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say nothing at all.”?
THIS SHIT STILL APPLIES PEOPLE!
EVEN IF SOMEONE LOOKS LIKE SHIT, JUST STFU ABOUT IT.
-Do not tell the person they look tired
-Do not tell the person “You look how I feel”
-Do not tell the person that they “don’t look like their usual self”
BECAUSE, if you’re saying it, then I bet that person has already heard it from someone else. Who likes multiple low blows in one day???? NOT FUCKING ME.
AGAIN, SO STFU.
Thank you for tuning in for this (quite obvious, yet one that everyone fucking ignores) public service announcement.
Plane tickets booked? CHECK! Ms. Melissa is the shit! Less than two months until we are partying in Germany babayyyy!
