It has been a whirlwind of awkward situations with different types of people I have met in a week’s span. Most situations were with men who were obviously predictable with their cheesy pick-up lines that nearly choked me to death on my seat while in the pre-departure area. 😛 (Please don’t mess with a young gal especially when she’s busy writing on her journal) Read more →
