Vacation Day 1 of 5: Flight of the Friends

Published June 16, 2017 by K. Leigh
Hello Everyone!
I came back from my vacation and took a week to gather all my thoughts and photos. My friend Cymantha (pronounced the same as Samantha) started out on 5/29. It was a rough start since I found out that one of my friends’ fathers had passed. I felt heartbroken that I could not be there for him that week, but I did let him know that if he needed anything to text my fiance and I and we would be there for him (obviously my fiance more so than me).
Cym and I got to the airport alright and made our way through TSA. What a joy! Cym always gets patted down. It never fails and this time was no different. Once our carry-ons (the only bags we had) were checked as well as our persons, we made our way to the gate. We flew Delta on the way down. The planes were small, but the staff was friendly.

2015:

-My boyfriend’s brother passed away

-Got a new job

-Was in a wedding

-Went to Disney for the first time

-Got engaged in Disney

-A friend from high school’s step father passed away

2015 was a very bad year for me mentally because of all the deaths, but there were some positives.

2016:

-Got a small promotion at work

Random Disappearance

Published March 31, 2015 by K. Leigh

Hello! And I am so sorry for not updating and posting blogs.

It looks like the last one I posted was on September 1st. A lot has happened since then that has been such a cause for my disappearance. I attribute a lot of it to finishing my last semester at my university and the holidays. However, I wanted to start up again in the new year and I had planned out some posts. My job’s busiest months are January, February, and March so I was going to post accordingly. There was one week where I did nothing but work and sleep maybe three hours between shifts. It was rough. My grandmother was moved into the house at that time and she started to get sick. She was in and out of the hospital and rehab. My great uncle was also not looking very good, either.  I actually took a break from Round Robin when things started to look grim and work was buzzing.

National Book Festival

Published September 1, 2014 by K. Leigh

Hello again! It’s been a while. The summer has been pretty hectic because I have one last semester left and knowing such, if I wasn’t at work, then I was working on my social life. I won’t have one starting this week because I work Tues, Thurs, Fri, (and weekends if there’s hours) and I will be attending classes Mon and Weds. So I apologize for the lack of blogging (not like I am very exciting on here anyway).

This weekend I attended the National Book Festival in Washington D.C. The main reason? It was on the upcoming events for Lisa See‘s book signing tour. Since she is one of my favorite authors I was not going to miss a chance to finally meet her and have her sign another book (I ordered a pre-signed copy of “China Dolls” a few months back).
