T minus 5 days till HAWAII.

Hawaii

As it so happens I am going to HAWAII!!!! && I absolutely cannot wait. My friend who is a year younger than me in the forensic program I was once a part of (weird… weird… WEIRD) (I really can’t imagine not going back to school in the fall) invited me to come and visit her on the island where she is doing her internship.

No she is not a native, but when she left for college her parents moved down there because her dad is a naval captain and was stationed there for a few years. My alongside my partner in crime, are heading down for one crazy vacation. Most likely the last awesome time before I head over to Rhode Island for Naval officer candidate school (OCS) training.

My only complaint is that I’m not a very big person on going to tourist filled destinations. I like to find the beauty in something not everyone is all about. The same thing with books which I do believe I have stated previously. I was a huge fan of the Twilight series but when it takes off like that the magic just disappears for me. Its way to big, the movie wasn’t to my satisfaction, and when everybody and there mother knows the love story, it doesn’t have the same impact nor will it ever have the same impact as when I read it the first time no publicity included.

The greatest thing ever is that I will be staying on Pearl Harbour base with E and her family and we will be getting a personal tour of Pearl Harbour due to the fact that her father has connections and doesn’t mind showing us around. This I am extremely excited for. It’s soo perfect.

Other adventures planned include a back packing trip to some of the volcanoes, staying in a Hostel for a few nights to experience Hawaiian nightlife, relaxing on Wakiki beach, going to the Aquarium, sushi, a Louau, snorkeling, and just the best time a girl could ask for with friends.

For this week I am sooo excited. This will be the farthest I have ever traveled from my hometown, which isn’t saying much for someone trying to make it all around the world. But, this is a good start for sure.

After Hawaii its time to get very serious. Getting into trained physical shape is a huge priority, pushups and situps are a must. If I think that I’m going to make it through OCS I’m going to have to work my buns off to be in good physical condition before I even leave. This is top priority.

On the return trip there will be no fooling around. Time to get serious. Until then, I’ll take a time of my life please.

Are Things Settled Down Yet?

Well I can obviously say that I might be the smartest person I know… at least for now. With a professional portfolio, a blood spatter lab notebook, a ten page research paper with an annotated bibliography, and a triathlon training program to write up, I’d say I have my work cut out for me.

Everything is due this week might I add and I spent this past weekend in Nashville Tennessee running a marathon which means I really needed to get on it.

Of course I decided that I was going to have to step it up if I wanted to get everything done in time and so, last week, I put the pedal to the metal and I cranked up my “This shit needs done” mode so now, as I sit here in the library I have absolutely nothing to work on and I’m writing this post.

Unbeliveably I finished everything I needed to last week so this week I can recover and prepare for the two finals I have Monday morning starting at 8am. Yikes!

I’m very excited to be done, I can’t wait to graduate, and I really can’t wait to make the transition to summer. There are millions of things I have planned, want to plan, need to complete, this one final summer before the real world begins and so therefore I’m in a transtion phase at the moment.

Before all of that begins I really do need to sit back, relax, and keep it cool.

Also, quite randomly I happened upon a Hilarie Burton website that stated she has a blog and a new production company called Sothern Gothic Productions SoGoPro.

If you don’t know who Hilarie Burton is you suck and I need you to check out a little show called ONE TREE HILL because you are missing out and you need to relive greatness with some of their older episodes. K thanks bye.

Where Are My People???

Summer is here. I wouldn’t be able to say that if I hadn’t almost died the other day in the sweltering heat when I was out biking it on the bike trail for 15 miles. By the time we got back to our house I really thought I was going to die, and the only way to get away from the heat was an ice cold swimming pool. I have never felt so refreshed, I couldn’t even see anything but cooling off as I staggered up to the deck and let my body freely drop and be enveloped in the shockingly cold water.

I have never felt so upset about anything as this summer when I have realized that all of my friends are out and about outside of our town doing things to help them with their lives and futures. It didn’t hit me until the other night when i was sitting at my house I decided to call someone up to hang out and as I was going down the list in my phone  book I realized there was no one to call because the few friends that I have left in this place, were working or busy.

How sad. Every single one of my very close friends is not staying here this summer and I am stuck in this prism of jobs working everyday of the week, not getting a chance to hang out with anybody. I have never felt this way in my entire life. Everyday there is something to do and when we are bored we somehow find something fun  to get into. Now, there is nothing. I am stuck here alone with very few people to hang out with and it is certainly heartbreaking when not long ago I was able to pull eight or nine people together for a night of fun, spur of the moment.

What is the world coming too? Reality sucks.

I like the Kid’s Definiton of SUMMER Way Better.

So… tomorrow is my last final for the semester and with it goes the end of my junior year. I have one week before the chaos of my summer starts and let me just say it might be fun, but not in the way of a student. I start my internship at the corners office a week from next Monday and it should be very interesting. I will be working four 8.5 hour days a week and during that time I will be on call any time of the day if there is a crime scene, a car accident, or an autopsy that needs done. That I might add… is actually quite exciting.

My job… at the catering company wasn’t supposed to start till after may 17th but they need me this weekend because of the hectic mother’s day dinner that will be going on so I’ve been scheduled to work my first few days in complete chaos. yeah. But its okay because one of my good friends works there (which is how I got the job) and she said she will help me when I get confused.

Tuesday is a big white water rafting trip that many of my college friends are attending. We are all getting together at my house the night before since I live closest to the river. That will be Very Fun and I am quite excited for it.

On Wednesday I will be at the Community College Bookstore because financial Aid comes down for the summer that day and they called me into work. Geez, I never get a break. And I’m sure once I go in on Wednesday they will want me on Thursday too.

As hectic as my summer will be I am looking forward to it.
