This weekend I took a break from law school. We may only be 2 weeks in, but I am SO over being in classes. Patrick and I took an adventure to DC where his mom’s family and college roommate live. DC is hands down one of my favorite cities because, let’s be honest, it’s a law students dream: The Supreme Court, the Capitol, all the important historical documents. I was so excited to finally be able to go to The Smithsonian and spend an entire day there. I loved having lunch by the Washington Monument.
My favorite part of vacations is always flying. Ever since I was little, I’ve had an obsession with flying. When I was younger, I wanted to get my pilot’s license, which was strictly forbidden by my parents. I can sit at airports for hours and watch the planes come and go. I realized on my flight home how peaceful flying can be. As part of my travels, I will ONLY take flights that take off and land at night. I will actively avoid day flights because they are boring to me. There’s something about looking down at the twinkling lights that is so peaceful and mesmerizing.
While we were flying over DC, I realized the world is huge. It’s so much bigger than I can ever imagine and there is so much more for me to see. From my little window in the sky, I can see for miles. It’s just a huge stretch of land where down below there are families going to bed, people busily working, dogs being walked. All these mundane things we never think about are going on around the world and from that little window, I can see it for miles.
