July 20th, 2010: Veronica Kanya

3am and I’m still not totally packed. You’d think by how much I was packing and how insane I was going about making sure I had everything That I knew I was going to stay in LA. The thing is I had no idea I was going to end up staying here. See I met Bowen online, but not on SL. We both were viral video makers and we connected when we found out our birthdays. His is on December the 10th and mine is on the 11th. That was the jump off to tons of IMs, emails, and phone calls, then after a month of that, the plane ticket.

I was terrified about meeting him, but not for the “He is going to totally hack me up” reason. We were in love before we even touched each other and I had never felt being in love that intensely and it scared me because we hadn’t met yet. I never would have thought that I would meet my soul mate online and be with him for 3 years now, but yes I did. When I got to LA we had a wonderful week, and then it was time for me to head back to Florida. I remember going up the stairs and seeing him with his sad face and his “Thundercats” T-shirt looking up at me.

While in line I kissed my plane ticket and said “God, if I’m supposed to stay here in LA please give me a sign”. Well when I got into wonderful Houston… I found out all the flights to Florida were canceled due to weather. I would have to sit in the airport all night. I almost started crying and then I thought, “Was this a sign?” I called the airlines and they told me there was nothing they could do, so I asked, “can you fly me back to LAX at no extra charge and tonight”. I waited thinking there is no way she will say yes. She then said, “Yes we can… we will just get you on standby”. I Changed my Ticket then called my mom and she said, “I knew you weren’t coming back… send me an In ‘n Out burger”. Back on the plane… headed to my new home. I looked out the window excited. Stepping off the plane I see my future walking up to me. We hugged and kissed, and we haven’t stopped kissing since.
