today I’m sharing my mental secret to have a great flight on an airplane and at the airport, as I get on my third flight this week! catch up on yesterdays vlog:

I have been traveling a LOT lately. I’m basically a travel vlogger now… just kidding. But today I am have another airport vlog as I head from Seattle to Washington DC for playlist live! With this being my third flight this week i have learned some travel tips and airplane travel hacks. This biggest one being you must keep your mind busy to have a really great flight. That is my secret! I know its simple, but just think about playing a game, rather than just listening to music. If you let your mind wander you will get bored and time will pass slower.

Welcome to my vlog of My Millennial Life Crisis, or MLC for short. MLC is also short for Monica Lucy Church, my name! I’m hoping to get into daily vlogging. I’m not sure if I will be able to keep it up, but here goes nothing. I’m just a 20 something year old girl who dropped out of college to pursue a lifestyle on the internet. Lately I’ve been waking up finding myself unsatisfied with what I am doing. Like most people my age, I have no clue what to do with my life. I know what I’m good at and what I want out of life, so it’s time to make a change.
