It’s been a while, no? I’ve been completely absorbed into school and work, and I have had so little time to offer a proper update.
Summer’s gone! It was a bittersweet goodbye. After starting a new job, I had to go into overdrive to prove that I’m an awesome and reliable worker, and that always means sacrificing everything to devote yourself to your job. This being the case, all my weekends went to overtime, and all my weekdays went to school and rest. But I wasn’t letting summer go by without any say in it. I got to fulfill my birthday wish for the past few years and go to the beach to celebrate.
|L-R, Vitor, Lidia, Me, Alesha|
I also do it when I’m eating something I enjoy.
Vitor got in on the shot,
Alesha then had the bright idea to get buried in the sand.
It was! I didn’t take any food photos because I ate it so fast. And I may have had too much of a giant margarita.
Near nightfall, I wanted to end my trip like I had so many times before, on a ferris wheel.
I should note that I’m terrified of them. When I’m high in the air, I have a pretty intense reaction. I immediately freeze up, and I can’t breath or think or move.
But David and Lidia have no fear.
But I never let go of the guardrail.
But I did smile.
Lastly, we enjoyed some souvenirs and ice cream.
|That’s a whole lotta ice cream, Lidia!|
Took some more photos,
There wasn’t much time for me to step out of the action and take photos.
(Silly excuse I know! But I’ll do better, I promise!)
So take this photo of me drinking from a coconut (ahh, how refreshing are these memories!)
