Today I'm leaving Charleston, South Carolina heading for Auburn, Alabama. This trip is kind of momentous for two reasons. First, I'm going to Alabama...who would ever thought I'd go to Alabama before say Chicago or (in all honesty) California Wine Country.
The other reason this is kind of momentous trip is because I'm leaving the East Coast time zone for the very first time in my life. When I was growing up my family never really took a lot of vacations. When we did we visited family who lived in various places up and down the East Coast. So this is a big step in the process of making me "traveled." (I'm pretty sure that since I've never left the East Coast time zone before the age of 24, I'll never be what they call "well-traveled.")
Anyway, I'm heading west with my aunt to go visit my cousin who's a freshman at Auburn. It's parents' weekend and we're going to the game. Also excited for my first "big time" football game - because football at UVA was never a BIG deal, like it is at an SEC school.
So I'm off for the weekend! Enjoy your weekend!
