I’ve been a bit under the weather mentally. I’ve recently come into contact with a lot of piss poor attitudes, negativity and a sprinkle of self-doubt. Tumblr is usually my place to vent but i haven’t utilized it in a while. I don’t feel like spreading this feeling so instead i’m going to list the places i’d like to go this summer. Then i will organize, hold an open forum with Biggie, and figure out which ones i will actually accomplish! Ready?
#1 - Camping (Level - Easy/$)
This will require beer, buying/stealing a tent, a fire pit, and a lake i can swim in. The other option is having a picnic at the hot springs in Ohai. (But i’d rather get away for a few days.) BONUS: I have never been camping.
#2 - Vegas (Level - Easy/$$)
I already have plans for Vegas with Bo!!! WOOOOT. If neither of us end up flaking then it’ll be pool parties 24/7. Which sounds perfect. Bo made the night time pool club sound awesome. It’d be nice to get ‘Team Ho’ (Heather + Bo) back in business. We’ve been too responsible lately!!
#3 - San Diego - (Easy/$)
After the perfect night i had with Will and his gaggle on Monday, this sounds like a wonderful adventure!!! Just the weekend, loud personalities and lots of awkward shoulder dancing. BONUS: No hotel room fees and My nearest and dearest Will. We haven’t gotten to see each other as much i had hoped!!! This would be wonderful.
#4 - Madonna Inn/Solvang - (Medium/$$)
This would be a great road trip/girls weekend. Drive up early and spend the afternoon in Solvang. Then spend the weekend in the kitschy heaven that is Madonna Inn. I’ve wanted to go to both these places since FOREVER.
#5 - New York - (Hard/$$$)
I’m starting to get my New Orleans itch for New York City. (That sentence makes sense to me). It will probably end up being one of those spur of the moment ‘gotta get the eff out of this place’ freak out vacations. New Orleans was one of the greatest experiences of my life but i think New York is a different ball game. I would need a partner in crime for this, which is likely to get difficult. I hate waiting and depending on other people for stuff like this. I just want to get out and go. Traveling alone is amazing and i suggest that everyone do it at least once. Being happy experiencing life on your own is an amazing feeling. :)
Just for good measure i’m going to throw in some wild cards!!
#6 - Chicago - (medium/$$)
Would love to check in on the family in Chicago. Get in touch with some Dad memories. This trip definitely won’t happen this summer. The winter is more likely. A snow filled winter would be a dream. I would love to adventure a bit more in the city. Might have to convince Bo to join me. She’d be able to handle if i got emotional haha.
#7 - England - (hard/$$$)
I always want to go back. I’ve always hated not having family in LA. Being in England is a whole different experience. There’s family everywhere, and they’re all in different stages of life. I love it, fighting and all! :) and if i got to see John while he’s in town, well that would top the charts!!!! I would avoid drinking pints of whiskey with andrew this time, although i’d love to watch him try again! I miss my family.
#8 - Austrailia - (hard/$$$)
This trip won’t happen for a couple years. I’d love to visit Don and check out John’s swinging pad. I may bring home a pet koala, but only if he can live on donuts.
#9 - Greece - (Nope/$$$$$)
I need to see Greece. I need to drink with old Greek men and laugh and hear their stories. Well this really needs to happen everywhere i go…
I think that’s it for now.
My heart/head already feel better.
