Still on my "Summer" Break

So I leave San Diego in 2 weeks. I've yet to pack remaining clothes and supplies in 20+ lb boxes, and meanwhile friends who are already in college are writing out essays and working their brains to death like it's the junior year of high school again. Friends who are high school seniors are frantically getting to their college applications, and friends who are high school juniors are finally getting a taste of academic hell.

Meanwhile, I have little…

April Break, Stupid Assignments, and Strawberry Hill.

1)  My April break really consisted of me sitting on my ass and watching 43 episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist on Netflix instant play. All my (3) friends were busy, and I was too lazy to call them to figure out a plan. I did venture outside a couple times, but they were mostly to walk the dog and visit my grampa in the hospital. I did buy new nerdy glasses frames, and they should be ready in a week. But yeah; I actually did SO MUCH NOTHING that I'm surprised I haven't developed a…

Day 182: Summer Vacation 2010

It all started on Thursday (remember? I was talking about packing in that blog?). We were planning to leave by 3, so we left by 3:30 (though, really, we just had to get to BG by suppertime, so we didn't actually have a specific time. Mom did say 3 when I asked her, though). We arrived in BG at about 5-ish and didn't have supper until closer to 7. So, I spent time with Ben. Ben and I were the only members of JEB that were in the house that day. The next day, not much happened for most of the… Continue

Day 181: Not Summer Vacation 2010

So, remember when I said I would be writing about my summer vacation today? Well, considering that fact that it's almost 11 at night and I'm just now writing this blog means that it's not going to happen.


Why did I not write about my summer vacation today? Well, I will admit that some of it's my fault. Probably most of it. I had plenty of time in the afternoon, but I kept thinking I had plenty of time and then I didn't have plenty of time anymore. However, that's not the…

Day 180: I'm back

No Things That Annoy Me today.


I'm just writing a quick blog to let all of you know that I am back home and there were no dilemmas in my getting home. I had a fun week and I'll tell you all about it tomorrow.


Right now, I'm exhausted and am probably going to go upload pictures from vacation and put them on Facebook. Hope you all had a fun week.


What fun things have you done this week (or just what have you done this…

The Greenest Vacation

I was recently asked by a friend which would be a more green way to vacation, go to Orlando Fl. by car, travel by plane, or go on a cruise. I didn't know the answer off the top of my head, so I decided to do a little research. At first glance, it seemed that by far the most fuel efficient way to travel was by car. She owns a Ford Escape Hybrid that gets about 31 mpg on the highway. A Boeing 747 gets approximately (taking different cruising altitudes into consideration) .1545 mpg. A cruise ship… Continue

Summer! What now?

Yay! Summer vacation is here! And unless you have amazing plans (whether family oriented or not) or have a legion of friends who DON'T have plans, then odds are you are going to spend most of it sitting in your house surfing the Internet or playing video games. OR reading books, whichever. Depends on what sort of bored you are.



Don't say this isn't true. You know I'm right.



I've noticed this pattern in the past - you get really hyped up for school to end. I declare myself to… Continue
