I’m a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it. Thomas Jefferson. Could not say it better. The harder you work, the more luck you have. I have been told that I am a very lucky person and I believe so, but my luck did not fall from the sky; I have built my path through hard-work and persistence. I will update this blog in a regular basis with the experiences I will endure during my journey in Hawaii. This fall semester I will be attending the University of Hawaii at Hilo. I cannot clearly express my feelings, they are a mix of impatience, excitement, anxiety and happiness! A dream becoming true. At the University Palms apartments I will be staying with Alanna Ferguson, Maddy Etrheim and Genevieve Normand; I am just way too excited to meet them and get to know them. My flight will be endless yet, hopefully, entertaining. On saturday, Aug. 14, I will be leaving Ft. Lauderdale airport at 7:55 p.m. EDT arriving to Las Vegas at 10 p.m PDT. The departure from Las Vegas will be at 2:45 a.m PDT towards Honolulu, Hawaii. where I will be arriving at 5:55 a.m HST. From Honolulu, I will finally get into the final flight at 7:44 a.m. that will be landing at Hilo at 8:35 a.m. HST. Quite a flight! I would like to emphasize on the time variations: EDT Eastern Time, PDT Pacific Time and HST Hawaii-Aleutian Time. This means that when I will be landing at Hilo early morning Hawaii-Aleutian Time; at the location of my departure, Miami, it will be 6 hours later Eastern Time. Therefore, I will have an overnight flight for over eighteen hours. My journey will clearly start way before I put a foot in Hawaii. I am impatient to discover what destiny has on reserve!
