Disney - Ocean Rest

So last week was brutal in my head, because I just hit a wall and was exhausted, but this week has done a 180 and I feel so refreshed. Maybe it's because my shifts weren't so bad, or maybe it mostly has to do with the fact that I was able to give away most of my shifts next week, which means that when my bestie and my parents come, I'll be able to be with them instead of working like crazy. I'm SO excited about that.

Yesterday a few of my friends piled into my car and we drove down to Sand Point Park around 10 am and got the perfect spot to watch the Endeavour shuttle take off. Seriously, we kind of stumbled upon the place by accident, and I really wasn't expecting to get a good view, but if the launch hadn't been canceled then we would have had amazing front row seats. I'm crossing my fingers that the launch will go off when my parents are here and we can all drive down to watch it. :)

Monday I'm going to the CP spring formal, and I'm super excited about that. It's going to be a blast. I was supposed to work till eleven that night but I was able to give away the shift which makes it even better. Tuesday I'll either go to Daytona with some friends or I'll go see my grandparents for the night. Wednesday Payton gets into town so she'll probably come over to my apartment and we'll do that crazy best friend thing that crazy best friends do when they haven't seen each other in way too long. And then on Thursday I work a really nice 10:15-6:45 shift and then I'll pack up a bag to go see my parents when they get into town later that night. All in all, a great week is ahead.

Anyway, that's the re-cap of this week and my life here. Today was one of those days when I was driving down the road, no GPS, no maps, 100% confident of where I was, weaving in and out of traffic, with the sunroof open and Jimmy Buffet blaring out of the stereo and I just had one of those, "Wow, this feels like home." moments. I'm mood swingy, I know it: last week I was done with Florida because I felt so exhausted. But now that I'm not working a horrible week, I'm back to where I've been over the past few months, very content with my current position in life. It's an adventure, it's exciting, and the coast is just a short drive away. That's the nice thing about living in Florida, the island girl that I am is always cheered up by the palm trees and quick trips to see the water...how I will live in a landlocked state for four years of college, I do not know.
