Luggage update!!

Unfortunately I had to check my guitar to Philly and am praying that the hard case I bought will provide sufficient protection. Side note: one of my strings broke last night and I forgot to buy extras so that is a reaaall bummer. Thankfully, my mom has offered to send me some tomorrow, meaning they might arrive in a month. Guess my journey to becoming a rock star will have to be postponed.


My checked bag was 1lb over. Although the pound of candy immediately flashed before my eyes as an easy way to reduce weight, I couldn’t bear to part with my M&M’s so I took out a hiking boot and tied it to my carry-on. The bag already has toothbrushes, watercolors and maybe even some underwear sticking out of it, so what’s a random boot to it?

Now, I’m waiting in the Manchester airport, trying to tame my excitement over the upcoming staging event. Saying goodbye to everyone has been so sad (especially my family), but it’s more of a “see you soon” than a true goodbye, right?
