… at least it usually is. And it’s the perfect job for me.
Guys, seriously, I have been able to read a heck ton of books that I would not have been able to read when I was a waitress (though I love that job too).
I have so much down time to do whatever the heck I want on the computer and my kindle. I read. I watch TV. I eat. I play video games.
This is the life. And then, I get to meet new and interesting passengers. And if I don’t care for their presence any longer, they’ll be gone in an hour.
I get to sleep in overall nice hotels thanks to the seniors ahead of me who demanded them. Personally, I’m happy with free breakfast, wireless, and comfy beds. Free coffee is a seldom needed luxury that we get.
I was able to travel to a bunch of different places on my own time: San Diego, Las Vegas, Burbank (friend’s baby shower), . And next year, I get two weeks off for vacation. During that time, I’m gonna go to Tokyo or Germany or wherever. I dunno.
I’m so thankful to have been able to provide my parents with severely discounted flights. They went on a MUCH NEEDED vacation to Maui. My Dad got to go to his cousin’s birthday party in Germany. Parents both got to visit my Dad’s parents in NC. SO yeah, it’s all good. And I feel great about paying back my parents for the wonderful opportunities they were able to afford me before 2008.
Oh yeah, and my wedding dress came from China. And it is super lovely. I just need to get it tightened in around my waist (cuz I added an inch or two to my measurements just in case). The lengths otherwise are super perfect.
