Justin’s HIV Journal:

Justin Goes To Las Vegas/Hoover Dam Part I

People that are infected with HIV are more apt to suffer from depression than people who are HIV negative. What better way to get out of depression than to take a vacation. I myself am not depressed but I figured that this vacation that I take might remind people that a vacation is a must for everyone, whether their HIV positive or negative.

My partner went to San Francisco to see our two friends get married, which I heard the ceremony was very nice. Sadly I wasn’t able to go to the wedding.

So my story begins here in the Baltimore/Washington Area where I had to take a plane to JFK in NY. I was so tired; it was 5:00PM when I landed in New York. The only thing that I like about this part of the trip was the men at the JFK Airport. I not going to lie there was a lot of cruising at the Airport. SO I get on the plane noticed that there was an older gentleman in first class that couldn’t put his bag in the overhead compartment. I was annoyed anyways because I didn’t have my coffee and it was early. Of course when I have to walk past everyone in first class I try not to look at them because I wish I was in first class myself.

So I just happen to look down and guess who looks up at me, 8 Medal Olympian Michael Phelps.

I was so stunned I couldn’t even talk or ask for an autograph. Well just my luck, 4 girls rush 1st class then the flight attendant quickly said, “Ladies please take your seats”. Of course when I heard that I said well, “that’s right ladies take your seats”. The flight attendant then said, “Umm you too Sir”. So I said, “Okay” but right before I went to my seat. I said, “Michael, smile”. Phelps said, “Sure” and smiled. I stole a picture of him on my cell phone. But as I looked at my seating number I noticed I was at the very last seat next to the bathroom. NICE, lol. Phelps was very nice, when the plane landed in Las Vegas he gave all the girls pictures and autographs.

So when the plane landed you could imagine I was tired. It was 6 hours and no real food. Can we say “cranky”. LOL SO all in all I had a good time. Going to Las Vegas and Hoover Dam was an experience I will never forget.

I second that emotion. I am not dying, I am living with it! No truer words could be spoken.
