Recently I went on Spring Break
The next day we went to Nashville. Which I was very, very apprehensive about. We left the house around 12pm. It took about 30 or so minutes to get there from the house. As soon as we got there we immediately went to some of the local bars. I already don’t drink, so that was very awkward for me. It was very bright, extremely loud (everywhere) and really really crowded. My aunt, & her friends ordered some drinks. I quickly excused myself & went to the restroom. I washed my hands, splashed some cold water on my face, dried off & went back outside. I forgot to mention the whole time I was in the restroom, I was deep breathing & constantly telling myself that it would be okay & to just breathe. After I came out of the restroom, I felt better, so we carried on. We went to about 4 or 5 more bars. I also went souvenir shopping. Which is always fun. We ended up going home around 5/5:30.
The next day, we went to downtown Franklin. We left the house around 10:30/11. The shops were all unique. I ended up shopping a little bit again, & got some things for my family while I was down there. It was a lot less nerve wracking & way easier to manage. We went to this grilled cheese place called The Grilled Cheeserie. It was so yummy. I had a “Thanksgiving” grilled cheese sandwich & tomato soup. The sandwich tasted exactly how it sounded, like Thanksgiving. The soup was super creamy & had some light basil in it, it was wonderful. I took many photos in downtown Franklin. I also took many pictures in Nashville as well. I learned that I already have the tools in my tool kit to self regulate & that having tools at our disposal really helps. Overall I had a blast, & even though we only were technically there 2 days, I’m so ready to go back!
