The title says it all. I NEED A VACATION. BAD.
Work has been driving me crazy. I can’t really go into detail because I don’t want to be dooced but I think I need a few days off from work and away from Vegas before I go on a murderous rampage and kill everyone in the sports book (I’m taking a few days off in November, but I need a real vacation). I left work so mad the other day that I went on a walk in hopes that some exercise would soothe my rage. It did, and now my leg and butt muscles are super sore. That’s how mad I was, people. I EXERCISED. THAT IS SOME SERIOUS RAGE I WAS EXPERIENCING.
PROBLEM: I have no one to go on vacation with. My bff Brian lives in Alaska and while I would love to see him, I feel kind of bad making him take time off from work when I know he wants to save up his time off to see his girlfriend, who lives verrrrrry far away from him. I could go with my sister, but she saves her vacation time to go away with her boyfriend. And then there’s Peter, but he has a girlfriend. And he’s poor. (Sorry, Peter. You know it’s true. I love you anyway!)
Now you’re thinking “hey, that’s only three people! Surely you have more friends!” Sorry, no, I don’t. No, that’s a lie, I do, but I’m not really super close with them (and one is married and a few I work with, so, you know, awkwarddddd, and my gossipy co-workers would assume all sorts of things), so going away with them would be weird. I’m mostly okay with being mostly friendless because hey, quality over quantity, right? But still, it would be nice to have people to take trips with. A girl who is a Facebook friends posted pictures of her and her friends on a trip to wine country in California, how fun would that be? Sadly my only female friend is my sister, and everyone tells me she doesn’t count as a friend because we’re related.
I’ve consulted everyone I know about taking a vacation alone and the consensus is that it wouldn’t be weird to go by myself. So I think I might just do it! If I do it, I’m leaning toward San Francisco. I’ve been there 5 times already but I LOOOOOVE it. I live close enough that tickets are fairly cheap and I could definitely find enough stuff to do for the few days that I would be there. If you’ve ever vacationed by yourself, tell me about it! Where did you go? What did you do? Was it totally weird going alone? I NEED YOUR ADVICE.
In other news, I saw Wicked two weeks ago. Second time I’ve seen it and I loved it just as much as the first time. In fact, I’d go again. If I end up going to San Francisco and Wicked is still there, I might just go see it a third time! Next up is Addams Family on November 21st. I am most excited for Shrek and West Side Story. I wish next season included Newsies and Book of Mormon. Or Les Mis! LEGALLY BLONDE! ALL TEH MUSICALSSSSSS!
So, you know what totally sucks and is really awkward? Having to sit next to someone you hate for half your shift. Plus, he kept humming and it was driving me crazy. Thankfully our shifts are pretty opposite and I don’t have to see him much. Still, can he move away to another state? Forever? That would be great.
