We went to the beach yesterday. We had people staying at our house so we could leave early in the morning. I crashed in my bed at 11:15pm. I got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and could hear people chatting throughout the house. For one moment--one single--tiny-- moment--I regretted falling asleep so early. But then I crawled back into my little metal futon and happily went back to sleep.

At 5:30am, my crazy roommate started playing music loudly in her room in an effort to wake up the troops. I calmly walked to her room and stated, "Do you want the neighbors to call the police? It's 5:30am on a holiday weekend." Nothing could squelch her hyperness--which is good. Who wants to squelch someone's bliss?! Not me! No sirree.

I just typed up a bunch of negative things--but I shouldn't publish such negativity. So here's a catalog of good things and some bad things.

1) The drive was long.
2) The beach was beautiful! It always is!
3)Water was cooooolllllldd.
4) I got a sunburn, despite my best efforts. Of course, it's only in areas that my spray sunblock missed--like my arm pits and my butt. Crazy!! And my back is pretty toasty.
5) We ate Fish and Chips.
6) I listened to bad jokes told by uninteresting men for a very long duration. It took everything in my power not to text Spencer, "I miss you!!! I love you!!! Never leave me again!!!"

There's nothing like spending time with other people to make you appreciate the close friends you have.

Traffic getting back into the city was horrific. But Jared's car was wonderful and he was pretty cool. Another guy in the car kept stating horrible facts about how long it was going to take us to get home. He also enjoyed answering all of my rhetorical questions. The other guy in the car spoke so softly I couldn't understand him. No one could. There's shy, and then there's inconsiderate. I love my loud and articulate friends now. I love you all!!!! 5 hours in a car people! Five hours!!!

Today I get to start the new quarter. I'm going to enjoy teaching this new English class.

Oh honey, I couldn't stop laughing. Especially since that comment you made on my post about boring people. It made me think of that. I'm jealous that you got to go to the beach, but not jealous of the 5 hour car ride. :)I'm sure it's no consolation, but I love you. I just love you.
