Alright, so recap on the trip thus far:
-Slept a half hour last night, almost woke up late (I tied to not sleep in an effort to wake up in time).
-Was ready to leave by 3:45 pm. Left around 4 pm (as planned).
-Got to DIA around 4:30. Checked in, no problem, ate a bagel, got on plane by 5:45.
-Slept on plane to Chicago for most of trip.
-Arrived in Chicago. Had McDonalds breakfast. Left Chicago at 11 am (Chicago time).
-Arrive in DC at 1:30-ish (DC time). Head to hotel where the ladies in my delegation are staying, met an alum of a Jesuit High School/College from the 80s. He gives us his blessing for the trip.
-Eat the foods (lunch?).
-Check in to the Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice. Do some fun things.
-Dinner break (alone, because I’m bad at not getting separated from group. Good thing I’m good on my own.)
-Meet back up with group. Cry during documentary screening/prayer service for Jesuit Martyrs since 1972.
-Find delegation from ol’ High School, because I’m staying in same hotel as them, and things.
-Meet Fr. James Martin, SJ:
-Freak out over meeting Fr. James Martin, SJ.
-Go to hotel.
-Write blog post.
So, that’s it so far. It’s been a crazy day, and I’m still technically running off of less than two hours of (maybe) sleep.
Today’s Daily Gratitude is for the amazing people I’ve gotten to meet so far. Such as Fr. James Martin, SJ.
