Mini vacation of sorts.

As if my blogging habits weren't awful as it is..
Hahah :P. Yes, I'm going to be gone for four or five days. All of which I'll be alienated from internet connection, unless I get ambitious and use my cellphone. Anyways, don't expect a post in the mean time. I'm going with Julie to visit her Aunt, who isn't really her aunt, just a family friend, hahah, and they live up on a lake. It's nearly six hours away in a car, and I believe we'll be sleeping in a tent, maybe. I'm kind of excited :).

So it'll be me, Julie, her brother John, her father, and Amanda. I hear that swimming, waterskiing, and tubing may very well be involved. But I'm not 100% sure of what to expect. I suppose I'll quit guessing and just tell you all about it upon my return. So I'll be there for the 4th of July, I hope you all have an enjoyable one yourselves!

Oh, wow. I think today may have been the very first day all summer that I haven't seen my friends. Like not leaving their house in the morning, getting together during the day, or going to their house for the evening. Nope, I was completely alone today. I didn't really mind though. For me atleast, I need a day for myself every once in awhile. Just to chill, veg out, and not worry about anyone else. I watched a few episodes of Dead Like Me. I highly reccomend that show to anyone who hasn't already watched it :). Unfortunately, my internet connectivity has been less than stellar lately.. So it's a struggle and a test of patience every time I want to do something. Every day I want a laptop more, hahah. After speaking to my parents, we decided it may be possible for me to use my savings bonds to purchase one. Originally these were for college, but all together the oldest, most valuable ones have accumulated about $1300. So my mother atleast, doesn't think they'll add up to enough to really make a dent in the college funds, so I'm free to use them for my education in other ways. Now I just need to revisit the suggestions you guys gave me, read up on some reviews, and choose what I want. The vice about laptops here is the inaccessibility to cable. Therefore, in order to have highspeed, I need to fork over $60/month. Outrageous. :/. But nothing else is cheaper.. so hmmph. I'm thinking about getting a usb connector from Verizon, so I have internet wherever I have cell service. I need to learn more about this stuff though. Well, I'll blog again, and hopefully better, when I come back :).

Ooooh :D The mini vacation thing sounds like its going to be so much fun! Swimming, waterskiing, tubing, and possibly camping, all with your two best friends? You're going to have such a blast! I can't wait to hear all about it :D

Argh, I know what its like to have an Internet connection that pretty much hates you :/ I hope that you can get all of that sorted out soon, I know absolutely nothing about UBS connectors and all of that kind of stuff :P A laptop would be awesome though!

Have a great rest of the week, trip, and July fourth :)

YAY on the laptop thing and enjoy your time away. Sounds like it'll be a blast.

I cheat and use You upload photos, edit them and then voila. A whole new photo. Free and easy :)

Enjoy your week away x

DNW! It's summer, enjoy it! I've been neglecting my blog and somewhat infrequent posting too.

I LOVE DEAD LIKE ME! I watch it every Saterday on the CW. :P

Did you ever figure out what laptop you're going to get? That's what I use for my wireless connection, it's through Verizon.

Sense I won't be here either, have a good Fourth of July!

I'm going to assume you're going to the Adirondacks or something like that up North, so have a fabulous time! I drove through there on my way to Vermont and New Hampshire.. the greens are spectacular this time of year! Hopefully the rain won't cramp your trip, but I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself anyway ;)

I've been blessed with wireless connection, yet I have a knack of causing computers to commit suicide and lockdown X). Good luck finding a laptop, that's awesome you're parents are allowing you to use the savings bonds.

Happy Independence Day, can't wait to hear about your trip!!


p.s. Dead Like Me? I haven't heard of it but there isn't any good shows on this summer, so I will definitely check it out!

Ooooh, have so much fun, love!
Also, have a lovely Independence Day!

Blah, I hate it when my Internet connection decides to turn on me. I basically decide to turn on it, too :P

It's ok, Olive. I don't think any of us are the most consistent bloggers.

The trips sounds super fun--and I hope it is! Have a fantastic time!

Good luck on getting a laptop.

Ahh, sorry I have been so behind.
It's good that you'll be able to buy a laptop, although that really sucks about the internet.
I hope you have fun with Julie! It sounds like it will be a good time. :)

Hey, welcome back! Enjoy your vacation?

And yeah, mum did freak out at the cigarette thing but just laughed when she realised it was a joke.
