The Aftermath

The day had come for my departure and sure enough, this optimist tried to have adventures until the very last minute. Truly, staying up until 20 minutes before your departure for your flight seems like a great idea, until you decide to take a nap which you almost missed your plane for. Nevertheless, I have…
