2. Plane Delay
I sat down on one of the sofas in the airport waiting room and checked my snapchat. My friends back home were all having a party and were putting all of it on their stories. I felt the need to constantly check it because I didn't want to end up having to sit through a 200 second story at once. I giggled at my screen as a video of my friends popped up, they were clearly drunk and were trying to do karaoke. All of my friends said I had the musical talent out of the group because I know how to play guitar and sing sometimes; I always told them that I wasn't that good and would compare myself to major artists like Beyonce or Ellie Golding. I'd like to think I'm as good as them but I know I'm not.
"Attention everyone, all connecting flights to Sydney, Australia and Miami, Florida have been delayed by 2 hours. Sorry for any inconveniences." The speakers blared through the airport.
I stared at the speaker and my jaw dropped.That means that I'm not gonna get to the college till after midnight. I slumped back into the sofa and let out a sigh. I had no idea what I was going to do for 2 hours. I checked my social media's for a final time before deciding to go to Starbucks. I bought a giant hot chocolate and sat down at a table that was tucked away in the furthest corner.
After finishing my hot chocolate I decided to go and sort myself and seem slightly presentable. I went into the bathroom and looked at myself in the mirror. I wasn't wearing any makeup and my hair was in the most disgusting messy bun. I opened my carry on bag and took out my makeup bag. I put on concealer, winged eyeliner and mascara, just to make myself feel a little bit better. I took my hair out of the messy bun, shook my head and put my long blonde locks into a messy fishtail braid. Satisfied with my work, I put my makeup bag back into my carry on and went back to the waiting room. The delay seemed to go by quickly and before I knew it, it was 20 minutes to my flight so I head over to my gate and got on the plane.
