I miss summer vacations from school. Playing at the pool, hanging out with friends, not a care in the world. The older you get the less fun these adventures become. Unless you have money (seriously! Think about it...) Well, this is my first summer where it is absolutely vacation-free. I'm no longer just on break from school. I am now a full-fledged college graduate and unemployed young lady. (OMG this song is fantastic - "Hey Jude" from the Across the Universe soundtrack). I hate being unemployed. But it's coming along and hopefully in another month I won't be still unemployed. Anyway, as I was saying, I love summer vacations, even in their mini-est form. Tomorrow I am embarking on a 2 day vacation (!!) with my lovely boyfriend, Jeff. We're meeting up in Camarillo so he can look at a townhouse with Michael, and then we're checking into the La Quinta in Ventura (they seriously have the most comfortable beds I've ever felt in a hotel room, perhaps save for a hotel I stayed at in Sacramento, but I digress). Early Wednesday morning we will embark on a boat trip out to Santa Cruz Island (part of the Channel Islands) and will have a few hours to roam about a place neither of us has ever been to before. So excited! I'll come fully prepared with some Odwalla bars, my digital camera and my brand new FLIP! Fun to commence in less than 24 hours!
