The Misfits aren't the only ones having fun in Hawaii. Yours truly will be heading there on October 16th for a few days of rest and relaxation. Hawaii has been a fantasy trip of mine for the longest. It's surreal that it's become a reality. What drove me to go was not only the decent fare but the fact that my bff Eugene is Hawaii-bound for the second time (lucky bastard). He's going for his close college friend's shot-gun wedding in September (which he's opposed to but that's another story) after snagging his own bargain price. I knew when he said he was going for a second time that there was no way I could pass up not trying to go on my own. So I did some research and after contemplating pulling the whole "MegaBus" to another city deal to get a slightly cheaper fare, I wound up getting a ticket at Midway that with transportation costs would actually cost me a few dollars less.
So the ticket is purchased. The only thing I need to do is survive my project from hell, which is supposed to be done end of September.
I have to now plan some excursions (though I'll definitely be putting in time to work the tan). Woo hoo!
