Woke up at 2:30am because I couldnt sleep so decided to stay up until I had to leave for the airport. Left late around 7am but got there on time because it wasnt too busy. First flight went great and got to see Puget Sound from the sky which was nice. No whale activity from what I could see, however.
Landed safely in Seattle and shopped a bit in the airport near my terminal because I had less than an hour to navigate the damn place after only being there twice. One of the worst airports Ive been to yet, too busy, too loud and I HATE the subway car. But I ended up getting a really cool bigfoot token and action figure that I plan to give to my boyfriend for his birthday. I couldnt leave the airport without it! Was disappointed they didnt have any orca stuff, all I could find was a very fragile christmas ornament and I had no room in my baggage left.
Second flight to Dallas was a little more frustrating. I was in the aisle which I hate and everyone kept bumping into me and I had absolutely no space for my feet. I was sitting next to two nice people though and made small talk to help get through the long ass take off process. It always feels like an hour between boarding and taking off and unboarding. We had a pretty rough landing in Dallas due to the severe rain storm in the area and the flight mixing up baggage claim at another gate. Finally got my luggage though and gave my mom a hug. We had to drive home in the heavy rain and severe Dallas traffic ON Mardi Gras Saturday night so you could image how busy traffic was on top of already crazy Dallas drivers. We almost got clipped like 5 times. Finally made it home around 8 or 9pm and I was so jet lagged and tired from 4 hours of sleep that I went right to bed. It was so nice seeing my brother again too!
