I'm flying, in a jet plane!

Current Theme Song (aka what’s playing on my ipod right now): Wunderkind by Harry Gregson Williams.

The Secret Adventures of Writer Girl: The Archived Episodes!

I’m in an airplane right now, writing this. I’ve already played “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” so I’m set. I did get a little choked up when the chorus came and sang “I’m leaving, on a jet plane, don’t know when I’ll be back again.” I hate leaving places I’ve come to love, but I do it a fair bit. It comes with the territory of being a college student. I’m looking forward to the day when I can truly call a place my own, a place I can stay and have for keeps.

And I’m discovering things all over again:

- ipods are a gift from the gods. They make even the longest flight positively pleasant. Add audiobooks and I’m in heaven.
- Complimentary juice drinkies are still one of the best things on any flight. Nice flight attendants even more so. ^_^
- I’m also discovering turbulence is really fun. No seriously, I mean that. We’ve had out fair share this flight (and definitely more than I’ve ever experienced before. Then again, I’ve only been on three other flights, and that includes the flight out here). And I really like it – that gut-wrenching feeling when you drop and then jerk back up – it's like a roller coaster, but a wee bit higher in the air. ;) I don’t know where I can use it in a book, but it’s gonna happen. :D

Speaking of being high up, one of the coolest things I’ve discovered up here is that the sky has a landscape all its own. The clouds have their own terrain, complete with hills, valleys, rivers, and mountains. It's incredible. I have been privileged to see such sights. And even luckier, I was able to capture some of them. *wicked grin*

(warning: these photos may be contraband. I never checked to see if cameras were on the “approved electronics” list. Better to beg forgiveness and all that) :)

Aren’t they amazing?! We live in such a beautiful world. What a grand adventure we are all on. Oooh, and it looks like another adventure is about to begin. Turbulence is back. Wee!

LOL! I love turbulence on flights! I'm usually the only one on the plane to think so, but... :)

The Harry Potter audio books are stellar, btw--the voice on it is just awesome!
