If people look at you and think, “Please don’t let her be on my plane,” you’re gonna have a bad time.
I'm not, by any means, a person for whom travel SHOULD be awesome.
I realized that if I wanted to make my time in the airport as easy and cheap as possible, I needed to get my act together and learn how to pack a carry-on like an adult.
My life circles around one fundamental question: “Will my ass fit there?”

civil liberties
I’m not going to be party to any “security” that in actuality is based on nothing more than institutionalized bigotry and acculturated fears.
travel clothes
I want to look pulled together when I fly. I’ve recently accepted that I do not. When I go home for the holidays I go in style: sweat pants and Uggs with wool socks.

We know, arguing that airport security is racist/sexist/homophobic/etc. is hardly anything new.
