vacation

During the second week in Florida, we rented a house on St. George Island. It had a really, really long dock that we used for fishing, crabbing, and kayaking. The kayaking was a little hard, since I had never done it before. But I spent most of my time at the beach. I love to surf and would do it as a sport if I lived in Florida. I also did some shopping and bought some turtles made out of shells. During this time it was my 21st birthday. On that day I went surfing, then I went to some gift shops, and then we went to a restaurant called the Blue Parrot. I had a drink called dreamsicle. I also got some different flavors of vodka!

2 week vacation!

Last Monday, my family and I began our way to Orlando to go to universal studios. On the first night, we stayed in a hotel in Georgia. The next day, we drove the last 8 hours to Orlando and went to universal studios the following day. We checked into the royal pacific hotel and then we spent the next 3 days riding rides. I really liked the Harry potter rides. I love the castle and all the animations. I Also liked the Dr.Seuss rides. We had lunch at the Dr. Seuss circus cafe and I ate a giant cupcake! I even got a cat in the hat wallet! Now we are at St. George Island in Florida. I will save that story for next week!

I am super excited for this summer! I have many plans for such a short amount of time. My first priority is working at McDonald’s. I usually work as the cashier, and if we are really busy, I make fries. When I’m not working, I hang out with neighbors, watch TV, keep up with Facebook, bake desserts, go swimming, and go shopping. Next week my family is going on vacation. First we are going to Universal Studios in Orlando. I’m really excited to ride the two new Harry Potter rides. After that we are going to St. George Island. We rented a house there, and we will be kayaking and going to the beach. We will be there for my birthday on June 16th. We will be gone for 2 weeks and wont be back until June 22nd. Then on July 16th me and my brothers are going on a train by ourselves for the first time to visit my aunt and cousin in Chicago. A few days after that our parents will arrive and then we will go to Wisconsin to see my other cousin and her baby. Then at some point we will go to Indianapolis to visit my 91 year old grandma!

Summer of 2015

Oh my gosh can you believe that this summer is almost here?!  Though really we will still be in the season of spring until the ending of June, summer vacation is so close!  I have been doing my best not to wish this semester away and get stuck by spring fever.  So far I have been doing well, though on a day like today, what more could one ask for?  I love planning summer vacation, with all of the possibilities ahead: road trips, having a summer job, or three at least in my case.  I hope to have the time to go and visit some friends and family actually up north, since the snow has melted and warmer temperatures have arrived.  This summer shall be a blast and my goal is to take each day one day at a time because really that is all I have in front of me.  Sure I have seven more days as a sophomore within the semester, but with each of these days I can take one at a time as well.

As for my summer plans, really I have a lot planned in the end.  I have at least 3 jobs in line that should span across the entire summer though each on different days that do not cause conflict with planning.  Also, I shall be taking at least two classes at Meramec Community College, one online and the other one will be on campus at least once a week though for about three hours.  I find that taking classes during the summer helps lighten my course load through the main semesters where I am a full-time student.  This time around with taking a class online, I had one of my friends sign up with me who also needed to take a history class, so that way I will have someone else holding me accountable for doing homework.  I shall do the same for my friend since I want what is best for her in return.

Along with having about three jobs and taking two classes at Meramec, I am pretty excited about volunteering with various organizations.  For starters I am excited about going back to St. Louis Children’s Hospital and volunteering at least two days a week for a few hours, where I can spend time with patients and give of my time.  Along with volunteering at Children’s Hospital, I anticipate returning to Springfield, Missouri to volunteer at two weekend retreats with a total of about 6,000+ teenagers and chaperones and youth ministers called Steubenville.  This weekend can be just about the peak of any teenager’s summer, at least a teenager who is in love with their youth group and growing more as a person.  Now that is not the exact criteria to attend such retreats, because I think that any teenager can really attend this retreat weekend and create new experiences.  And last, I hope to return to a Vacation Bible School that I have volunteered at since I attended as a kid.

I cannot wait to plan road trips with friends, take an adventure and let the summer begin!

Carry On, Wayward Son

by Alumni Posts July 8, 2013

Well, I must admit this post isn’t very St. Louis centered, but it does highlight another pretty cool place in Missouri – Kansas City! It’s about 5-6 hours away by train, and has some pretty cool stuff. I especially liked the farmer’s market – it’s huge! Bigger than Soulard! – and the raw/vegan/organic restaurant that I […]

Everything I Need to Know…

Hello, dear readers! You may have realized that I’ve been on a blogging hiatus for almost two weeks. That’s because I was on vacation with my family in Orlando, Florida. While there, we went to three Disney World theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and – my favorite! – EPCOT), and we also went to […]

I love traveling, and this summer I got a chance to go to one of my favorite places, Mexico! I went with my family, and this trip was kind of the final hurrah because we are all getting older and growing up. I got to spend 7 days in paradise, which was a great stress […]
