While every other college kid was partying down in Panama City, I decided to save my parents some money and earn brownie points with them by going home. It turned out not to be such a good idea. The week started out well. I went to visit my grandparents who live an hour away since I rarely get to see them. I enjoyed my grandmother’s home cooking and being able to escape my life for a while.
I also went to visit my former boss who I’m pretty close to. She moved to a different house and while I was driving to her house, I got in a car wreck. I was going slow and trying to find a road and the woman behind me ran into the back of me because she had been tailing me for like 5 miles…..grrrr. So it is like 5000 dollars worth of damage and I don’t have my car here at school for the rest of the semester while it is being fixed. I am very attached to my precious little CRV and I miss not having a convenient way to get to class. Walking to campus from Copper Beech isn’t that fun, especially with terrible allergies and the campus is practically yellow from pollen.
As if my spring break weren’t bad enough, one of my really good friends from high school, Brian, lost his two year battle with cancer. He had just turned 19 the week before. He was the funniest kid ever and kept such a great attitude even in the face of a terrible disease. His story touched the hearts of everyone in my hometown and his death really upset me a lot.
But there were some good things about spring break. I got to go to Savannah and Tybee on Thursday and do some shopping and eat at Paula Deen’s restaurant. And I got to lay out by the pool and eat at Olive Garden on Friday. But other than that, all I did was homework. Hopefully I can go to the beach next spring break.
