I'm backkk in the city

After my five hour delay I finally reached it back to my ever so big hotel. My weekend was splendid, not like the splendid sweetner, just because that's bad for you but you know what I'm saying. I got into Atlanta Thursday night and met up with Bryson, we caught a show at a local bar and then headed home. We went to breakfast at a pretty sweet place called Flying Biscuit, and the biscuits were delicious, imagine that. The trip into Clemson was gorgeous, the weather was perfect, the windows were down, the music was blaring, and I was on the way back to my school. The banquet, well...the banquet was quite like the last one, and the one before that...and yep, the one before that. I'm so glad I got to see all my old teammates and friends, I felt a little weird not being on the actual team anymore. They spoke of the future and the game plan for next fall and it was a little odd not being a part of that future, or that game plan.

I got to see my family for a little bit and spent some quality time with my girlfriend :) We all went to spill the beans (yummm) and did some catching up. Downtown Clemson was still the same, all 4 or 5 bars jam packed with people. I miss that atmosphere, and got to see a bunch of people that I haven't seen in a while.

Fast-forward and bam, the weekend was gone. Virginia and Penny lane dropped me off at the airport, and saying goodbye is always the worst. I sat in the airport for close to five hours waiting for our plane to depart. We actually boarded the plane only to find out minutes later that the pilot request that we (un)board the plane. That was a first. I did get to finish my book, Lullaby, by Chuck Pahlaniuk — I'm still not sure if I liked it better than Choke, but his twisted, clever, yet addicting style is always worth the read. He puts his own sauce on things, sweet sauce that is. I'm looking forward to getting one of his other books.

I missed everyone a lot and I'm so glad I got a chance to see everyone. I have about 2-3 weeks left here and I'm ready to make the best of it. My future is still up in the air for the summer, I'm playing the waiting game. My fingers are crossed, and my bags are about to be packed again.

  1. That's funny. I remember, years ago, being on a plane with my brother to spend the holidays in Portugal (like I said, a long time ago =P). We came out from Manchester and, right after we departed, we turned around and safely returned back to the airport. It was hours before we got back to the plane.
    Long day slash night.
