Around this time of year, I join approximately a bajillion other Americans and take to the friendly skies to travel for Thanksgiving. As a senior, I’m fairly comfortable planning and making the trek that gets me from point A in Wisconsin to point B in the Washington D.C. area. However, trip after trip, I’m left with mixed feelings about flying. What do I mean by that? Well, at the moment, I’m cruisin’ at 30,000 feet and have a couple hours on my hands, so let me explain.
This Tuesday, I’m joining the big kids and turning 21. While I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to do to mark the milestone, it’s proven surprisingly complicated to coordinate a night out on a Tuesday in the midst of a pre-Thanksgiving exam onslaught. My experience figuring out my plans got me thinking about birthdays past. A few highlights from my own parties as well as my friends’ came to mind. So, I’ve made a list of some memories I wanted to share this week. Alright, let’s get this party started!

Being from far away, I don’t get to see my family and friends from back home as often as I’d like. But fortunately, every once in a while, I’ll receive a call that someone is stopping through the Midwest. Such was the case a few weeks ago when my friend from the East Coast called to tell me she and her boyfriend would be in Madison for a weekend.
