Also, I like to live so moment-by-moment I tend to freak others out. I'm sure on my trip to Austin recently I would've freaked any self-respecting Guardian travelling with me out by the way I walked so close to the edge.
Here's how my trip went:
A couple months back I had decided I wanted to go see my favorite band down in Austin, esp. since they were playing on my day off, so I scheduled another day off, which is the only thing I did ahead of time at all.
I didn't buy any train tickets, which was good since I happened to have a friend who was touring all the shows in Texas and he was coming up to Dallas first and I kept not getting an answer from him but finally did a couple days before, and I rode with him. I also didn't know for sure who I was staying with until a couple days before, either.
I get there and end up staying all day in my friends' house alone, took a nap (my sleep schedule is geared for night shift) and when one of the guys got home he asked me how long I was staying with somewhat of a grimace on his face, so I told him I could leave the next morning (still hadn't bought a return train ticket, haha). The other friend got home and invited me to stay another day, which was good because we got to party with some girls we had met at the show that first night.
I bought the return ticket and left the next day, when I was almost home I texted my brother and asked him to look up bus schedules since I forgot to. I caught the right buses and made it safely home.
I'm not sure anyone else but an SP would have been comfortable doing that, but that's definitely the way I prefer it. hahahaha...
I told someone on another forum that if I could just decide to go to college the day before classes start I would totally do that.
