I am currently sitting on the floor of Chicago Midway International Airport, listening to The Black Key’s “Tighten Up” and blogging. All 8 of us to-be Cornellians, plus Ms. Neal, have been here since 9 AM today because our 10:50 flight to Detroit, (which is where we were originally going to transfer to an Ithaca- bound plane), was cancelled.
It is 12:54 PM now and in the last 30 minutes I have caught myself in the midst of falling asleep at least 10 times. I am actually feeling rather relaxed though—it’s been nice being silly and bonding with the rest of my cohorts. Genevieve taught me a secret language and Nick and I spent a lot of time saying words backwards. It’s all good.
Anyways, that’s all for now—we are heading downstairs to pick up our luggage. It looks like we'll be staying in Chicago tonight. I was really looking forward to reaching Cornell and having the dinner that was scheduled tonight, but at the same time, I can't complain about staying for even just one more night in this wonderful city.
