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!
