Enthusiasm Rising

  • Passports and Visas ready
  • flights booked
  • clothes washed
  • reading material for killing time on airplanes chosen
  • cycling shoes, pedals, helmet, gloves, and sunglasses packed
  • sunscreen packed
  • enthusiasm rising

When I forget what it was like to be a kid and have to wait until Christmas, I look to my experience of waiting for a trip to begin. It is approaching soon, but I feel like it is so far away.

My enthusiasm is rising and I can’t wait to be on that airplane (and even eating airplane food). Right now, before I have squished myself into my economy seat for many hours of flying, it all seems so amazing.  I wonder how far over the pacific I will be when that feeling starts to fade.  If only I knew someone at Air Canada who could bump me up to Business Class.  Between now and my flight, I will be asking the universe for this to happen.

For now, my excitement and anticipation will have to carry me through.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.
