And, so - I am taking the opportunity to relax for 11 days. Yes, I actually get to relax. That is such a foreign thought to me! I am, in every sense of the word, a hyper-planner. I plan everything. I schedule myself for weeks - months - of commitments. I go to everything I'm invited to and usually get there early to help set up. I plan the get-togethers, I help people with their birthdays, weddings, design needs, babysitting, etc. etc. etc.
Don't get me wrong, I love it. I love being "that person" that people can rely on, I really do. But, I am also looking forward to no responsibilities, no plans, no agenda, nothing. Hooray for nothing! Nothing is wonderful!
So, my trip with consist of leaving my city of trees on July 18th and commencing on what will be my very first time traveling alone. This is a huge feat for me. At 22, I have never ridden on a plane alone, found my way in an airport alone, entertained myself on a plane. I have always had a travel companion. Always. And, so, I will make my first trek to Hawaii, Lana'i specifically, all by myself. Silly, I know, but this is a big deal for me.
I will spend my trip relaxing, having some quality girl-time, and basically being young. I am taking a step back from the instadulthood that I succumbed to at such a young age. Hooray for me. :)
And, now, I have to fight the urge to plan those 11 days. It's not easy for me...
