Plane Ticket!

A couple Tuesday nights ago I purchased my plane ticket - and wrote this post.
I had already done the research and purchasing of the books, but what would really solidify this trip was having the actual ticket "in my pocket" so to speak - tickets are electronic these days. It is now set; I'm flying Delta there and NW home, through Atlanta (no snow storm delays down there!), and I get there two hours before check-in ends. The flight also leaves at 08:15 - almost all the other flights left either at 06:00 or 06:40 - which meant I'd have to wake up at 02:00 to get to the airport on time. So many bonuses and it was the cheapest of the time! If I had been shopping for the ticket earlier, I think I could have gotten it for 100 dollars less, but even earlier than that it was more expensive... so you gain some and you loose some. I'm happy. But it will only feel like I'm really going when I'm actually on the plane... then it's just a matter of making the connecting flight, not getting delayed, and finding transportation from the airport to where I need to be. :) God has worked through so many monetary glitches, issues, and major problems - from writing five application essays, getting more financial aid, and working out payment plans and the major issues found there. I am so thankful to actually be going. I'm excited to see how God will provide for my expenses during my stay in LA! He keeps providing when it looks like there's no way I'll be able to do it. :)
