I'm just a Bill, yeah I'm only a Bill.

This is another installment of "Kristina's life is stressful and crazy but ultimately really fun."

So, tonight at 11:55, I am flying to Washington DC. There I am meeting Matt (Booshoe37), getting a cab to our hotel, and meeting up with Shawn from UnculturedProject. From there, we will have a whirlwind 2 days of workshops, receptions, and a big advocacy event on Capitol Hill where we get to talk to politicians with other representatives from Save The Children, including Lisa Edelstein from "House".

I haven't told you about this yet, blog readers, because I only found out I was selected to go on Friday. And my tickets weren't purchased until yesterday. So it's probably the most spontaneous trip I've ever gone on. But at the same time, I hope it also does the most good out of any trip I've ever gone on, as well.

I don't really know what to expect. Shawn is wonderful and has given us as much information as he possibly could, but we really only know what I told you in the above paragraph. And that I have a red-eye flight tonight, as I leave at midnight and arrive in DC around 9 am. This is, you know, normal human sleeping hours. I have no idea how I am going to sleep in a middle seat the whole way there. I fly a lot, and since I usually book my own flights, I have grown rather particular about where I sit. Maybe this makes me spoiled, but I like sitting in a window seat on the right, and generally, it's simple enough to get that seat (This is always seat "E", if you were curious. I pick it because it's the easiest for me to sleep in that seat, and plane rides are boring and long and so much better if you sleep through them) when you're booking a few months out. Not when you're booking them one day in advance. xD

I'm definitely not complaining, obviously, that Save The Children is paying for me to go to the Capitol to vlog about Advocacy Day, and because of that I have to sit in a middle seat, but knowing it's a red-eye -- I'm just not looking forward to the flight. Even WITH my 10 free comics to read.

Anyway, I'm sure I'll have many adventures to blog about in the coming few days, but as for right now, I am tired, need to finish packing, and have to drive over to my parents' house.

I'm going to leave you with this last message: a lot of you commented on my last blog because you were unhappy with my saying we removed girls from the list of potential girlfriends for Justin because they were into both genders. I want to clarify that I never said that was a negative quality in a person, and copy and paste the message Justin himself left on my blog post:

"Actually, it was my choice to take girls off the list of ones that I would contact based on if they chose 'man or woman for dating' in the 'searching for' category.

And while it certainly isn't a minus jess, whimsy, and rosa; I am biased by previous experience and have chosen not to pursue such girls."

I'm truly sorry if I offended anyone.

Next post will be from Washington DC!

I GO TO SCHOOL RIGHT OUTSIDE OF DC and if I didn't have classes and no means of transportation, I'd find you. (In Towson, MD, btw =])

In the past three weeks I've done almost 48 hours of flying and the whole time I had the window seat on the right! It was bliss for sleeping opportunities!

Hope you have an awesome time in D.C!

I went to DC for a junior statesmen of America conference and fell in love with it! So much fun! I think what your doing is really great!

Olivia said...

Good luck! Hope everything goes well.

I'm impressed your doughnuts have lasted this long. Mine rarely make it out of the car.

hey--say where you're going to be at which time and I'm sure a bunch of people will show up to support you; myself included! I live just outside of D.C. in Alexandria :)

The metro system is fairly user-friendly although not quite as nice as the London Underground. Have fun on the Mall! I love running there because of the spectacular views-never gets old.

Best of luck in WDC! You'll have a great time and hopefully get to see the beautiful cherry blossoms! My family lives outside of DC on the Virginia side, I love to visit and think the city is one of the best in the country! Enjoy and safe travels!

Sounds like a fantastic trip! Can't wait to hear more about it. Should be really enlightening if nothing else, and Washing DC is wonderful and I'm sure you'll get a chance to explore a bit.

Chrystie said...

It was very last minute! I was all confused with the tweeting today. I was like "Since when is Kristina going to DC. I feel like I should have known about this..." haha. Good to know that it wasn't just me not paying attention. What a great opportunity! I can't wait to hear more.

KaraDawlish said...

Lol saw that one coming... i didn't think you meant it in a necessarily offensive way though, so i didn't say anything. It's his choice =P

Is it really weird the only thing I can think relating to this post is "omg, donuts? I can help!"

You inspire me so much. You always seem to do what's the best thing to do, and help other people, as well.

You should check this out. It's a trailer for Maggie Stiefvater's new book, Linger, and if you haven't read the first one, then I hoghly reccomend it!

Kristina, good luck with sleeping.
Have fun on Capitol Hill.
Also, it sounds incredibly stylish to say you're on the red eye.
