I didn't get excited, until my friends texted me the plans of what we'd do together. When I heard from them, I checked out mentally and focused on what I'd be doing in New Zealand.
I was so lucky that a lot of the court days I had in January were moved. So, I could go.
My mom took me to the airport. I took the midnight flight. The flight was full. I couldn't believe how many people there were. The plane was packed.
It was an easy flight, because I slept through 80% of it. When the plane landed, a feeling came over me. I was back home.
I felt free.
