Ten vacation thoughts

Things I learned on vacation:

1. As fun as people are, sometimes you just want to do your own thing.

2. The Dominicans love their music. In fact, they love it so much, they don't really believe in background music. It all has to be discotheque-loud, no matter where you are.

3. Taking a vacation from being in charge of anything (anything at all) is not as easy as it sounds, and requires a great deal of conscious thought and a good sense of humour from yourself and those around you.

4. The world is far, far too small. What other explanation could there be for me ending up as a guest at the wedding of friends of a friend with two people I went to Junior High with?

5. Disposable underwater cameras are a waste of money. Memories are better.

6. I really, really love the wind, except when I'm trying to sunbathe on the beach. Even then, I'm only minorly annoyed with it.

7. Tropical fruit is so much better in the tropics than in prairie grocery stores.

8. Rum is a good thing.

9. Packing too many books on vacation leaves one with a sense of something unfinished upon return. It's better to pack too few.

and 10. Vacations are nice. Coming home is better.

Forgive the previous and following lack of consistent posting. For the next two weeks, I'm studying my ass off for my midterm and quiz rewrite on December 4. I will pop my head back out after that and provide a more detailed update.



I'm with you on No. 10!
