My brain is so confused right now. I left Seattle on a red eye flight with Kayley last night, and I had every intention of trying to sleep on the first leg of our flight. We had five hours to Charlotte, NC first. But dumb me, I ended up using the time to read two chapters of Scarlet Fever by Maureen Johnson, play about and hour of iPad games and write lyrics to an ALL CAPS song.
I mean, all in all, a pretty productive flight. But now I'm sitting in Charlotte and it's almost 9 am and I've completely missed my window of opportunity to sleep. Now we're gonna fly to DC and it'll be nearly 11 am when we arrive and then we're off to meetings and social things with Save The Children and dangit, I haven't slept a minute. I'm going to be a zombie. Hello, important Save The Children people, let me drool on you and then eat your brains.
I'll just have to fake it; the awakeness. Or perfect the art of sleeping with my eyes open. They'll never know. Unless they read this very public blog, I suppose.
In other news, when I was going through security back in Seattle, I saw a baby in a space helmet. Its like these people WANT me to steal their children.
My day and a half in Seattle between LA and this trip was... Short. I edited 4 videos, watched some Big Bang Theory, slept a lot and unpacked and repacked my suitcase. That's honestly about all I had time for. But regardless of my disdain for red eye flights so soon after other flights, I'm very excited to be returning to DC for another Advocacy Day. It'll be great to see the people I know from Save again, and I love the feeling I get working with such a wonderful organization.
I think they're about to start calling us to board the flight. I'm in Zone 4 but somehow Kayley is Zone 3. What a cheater.
