I could hear people yelling, cars honking, soft music playing, etc. (Sensory details) I was surprised that it was this packed, and a little irritated since the only reason I picked such an early flight back to Illinois was to avoid long lines at the airport. I could feel my palms sweat as I looked at the airport’s map to figure out where to go first. I looked at Sasha, my friend who was making sure I knew what I was doing, and waited for her to say something. As she looked around, I began to panic. I felt my heart tightened and I had to take a few deep breaths so I did not freak out. I was very nervous to navigate around this huge airport; especially since I have the worst sense of direction, and I always get lost whenever I have to go somewhere alone.

Sasha went up to ask her about the shuttles but before she did I made sure that my phone was on the notes app.

    For most Florida residents, we look forward to those long weekends or holidays where we know we can make the trip to Orlando for a few days of fun and excitement. Orlando isn't known as a city, but rather, the “place with all the parks”. With UCF's location right next to this city we hold as a get-away, it makes it extremely unique and even beats out many colleges for simply being so close to a vacation we've all longed to be on.

    When I was twelve, my family and I went on vacation to Orlando, Florida. The main place we went to was Discovery Cove and we were going to swim with ocean creatures! I was so stoked to go swim with marine animals and couldn’t wait to feel the soft skin of a bottlenose dolphin on the palm of my hand. My mom was obsessed with dolphins two years ago. I’m not kidding. She had little dolphin statues in our living room for decorations and has a dolphin tattoo on her ankle. I was almost as excited as my…
