I’m Back Again!

After a hike on a windy day!

Hi everyone! Break treated me so fantastically. I spent two weeks at home, two weeks in Hawaii (!!!!!!!) and a few days in Springfield. After spending two weeks in Hawaii for swim training trip, I have one thing to say:

I’m SO happy to be back in my apartment!


  1. It doesn’t cost me $12 for a meal at McDonalds,
  2. I can go outside without the fear of a sunburn, and
  3. There is no longer sand in my scalp, behind my ears, or in my belly button.

Don’t get me wrong, though… Hawaii was spectacular, and was probably a million times better than staying in the cold. I was able to snorkel with sea turtles, whale watch, lay for endless hours on the beach and roof of the condo, and devour into the yummiest pineapple burgerI’ve ever tasted.

But like I said, it feels good to get back into the swing of things with a new set of classes and a normal swim schedule. Who else had a fun or crazy adventure over break? Share below!
