I’ve done more travel this year than I have in any year previous. I’ve now got reservations to be in three more states (though admittedly, Illinois and Virginia are mere layovers, New Jersey is the destination). A fourth (New York) is not even a day trip away, and I may find myself at Rockefeller Plaza on Tuesday night to check out the decorations as a tourist does. I’ll be leaving on Monday and returning on Wednesday. Food and taxi/bus fare aren’t covered, but everything else is. Yeah, I know the taxi will be pricey, but I do NOT want to drive in New York or New Jersey. Hell, driving in San Diego got me into an accident.
Even if I don’t make the side trip, I will stand in a city larger than my hometown: I have a layover at O’Hare, completing one of my travel goals for the year. The other may happen tomorrow night without me even leaving my own home: see an accumulation of snow (2-4 inches are predicted in Houston/Fort Bend County tomorrow night). I’ve also managed to see a mountain for the first time in my life (several, actually) and stand on all three American coasts this year.
Perhaps this interview will go well, and I’ll get next year’s goals in early: move, preferably to another metropolitan area, and start working for a living.
