One-Way Tickets and the End of the Beginning

I got an email from JetBlue about my flight reservation and it listed me as the only traveler. So I clarified with my mom to make sure there had not been some miscommunication for that past six months and that I was not moving in alone. And her response hit me like a curbstomp: “We have roundtrip tickets; you only have a one-way ticket.”

Wow. It hit me hard. I don’t know how many different ways you can say it before it stops surprising me. Gets me every time.

HOWEVER, this is due to the fact that I am starting the next real chapter in the book of my life. College woo! In August, after all my friends leave, I will be flying my confident tush to the most glorious of cities: New York.

No one is ever lying when they say confidence is key.

People keep telling me I’m adventurous, but all it takes is some confidence. I’m going to college, it just so happens, in the greatest city in the world. New York University will gain thousands of freshmen in August, one of which will definitely be so uncharacteristically confident, that no one will ever know she has no idea what she’s doing. But if I can tell you one thing for sure, she’s going to fake it ’til she makes it. That’s for sure.

Now that I have officially registered for classes, move-in day is quietly, but quickly, approaching (less than two months!), and all I’m waiting for is to find out where and with who I’m living (less than 72 hours!), it seems like an opportune time to start this blog.

I am not a famous author’s daughter (, or just a famous author (, and my opinions don’t hold much weight in the world (yet), but if you’re anything like me, or nothing like me, I think you’ll enjoy reading this blog. Maybe not. I don’t know, it’s up to you; but if you think this is interesting (which you probably don’t), just wait until the real adventure begins! T minus FIFTY DAYS; the big 5-0! Alright, that’s enough for now.
