Since I never got a vacation over the holidays, I decided to take a week off from work in January. I was actually supposed to go to Hawaii to meet with my bestie Lara who is living in Australia at the moment, but she couldn’t go. But I kept my vacation and instead went snowboarding with Heather and went to Cleveland with Elizabeth to see Kate. It was a nice short break from work. (And I ended up having the worst week ever when I returned to work, but whatever.) Vacations are great, there were memories made, and time spent with the best people in the world.
This year I had to work the holidays. Being a nurse, you don’t get off. I worked Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Eve. Thankfully my family were able to come to my house for the holidays I had to work, so I could enjoy their company and the food after I got off work!
The holidays this year went by in a blur, the new year was upon me before I had a chance to even think. Work is awful, it takes away the time I usually get to relax with my family during this time. Oh well, next year is a new year. But these holidays were good, my family is amazing and I love them so very much!
I love road trips. I love the car feeling underneath my feet. I love the speed, the crossing of borders, and the visiting of friends.
Every year I take road trips, ever since I could drive I have traveled to visit friends at college, at their homes, wherever my friends were, I went to them.
There is no greater joy that taking the time to spend the time to visit friends. Whether I am going alone, or with someone, I love that time spent in the car, singing my heart out, or talking for hours with someone I love. There is something magical about taking a road trip. There is something about the memories made on the road together that I hate to give up.
I get to go someplace new this coming week, I get to take a trip to someone who I have not visited yet, and that is the most exciting thing in the world!
2013 has been a crazy year, I quit my first nursing job and found another. I’ve been at my current job for 8 months now. I’ve traveled a bit, to Virginia again, NYC and to camp a few times. Lots of memories have been made, lots of films have been watched, so much tv as well, and even more books.
It’s been a great year, here’s to 2014!
I went to visit my Ramapo friends on December 7th for a Christmas Sweater Party! Most of us were not wearing sweaters… myself including… but my old college roommates made up for it in decorations and delicious food, and the wonderful company I get to enjoy whenever I get to see them!
This is from November 23rd, the Doctor who 50th anniversary special, and November 28th, Thanksgiving with my family!
For the Doctor Who special, a whole bunch of my camp friends decided to get together for a weekend of celebration and just an excuse to hang out! I haven’t seen some of these people in couple months, or a couple years. It was nice just to hang out and relax with them!
