I woke up today...
… and felt the urge to make some moves. So here I am, move makin! (Being on the phone and holding pens always makes you look busy) I’ve decided to really focus on being more responsible. It hit me while I was on the boat. I CAN get my act together, I just need to DO it. And it’s not easy. I’m currently back out of a job and debt never sleeps! But I have an awesome...
I came home from the boat the first time and someone had smashed in my back windshield. Because of my insurance, I had to pay for it. While I was home, the back left tire popped and I had to get a new one. This time the car seemed like it just needed some air in a tire and a jump. No biggie right? Called triple a and they jumped it and put air in the tire. I was so excited to get behind the...

This day in a life
So the big plans? Finish making my room inhabitable. I actually got pretty far yesterday. I’m getting rid of tons of superfluous “stuff” and clothes that are now too big for me (better keep this weight off!) They are going to a woman’s shelter, so I won’t just be tossing them. Also my good friend Ellie and I are talking about taking Capoeira which is exciting to me....
A free day to see friends, get things done, and no storm to hold me back! I will be POSITIVE DAMNIT!!! Things to follow… happy stuff!
Storm of the Century?
Well, not to say I’m not happy it wasn’t so bad, at least not for us, but I feel like I’m always gearing up for potential armageddon because of what the media leads us to believe. I guess it’s better to be safe than sorry, and I know people WERE seriously affected, but I was not. Just feel like the media is never quite on their game. Also, I’m complaining monster...
Looking over the edge at Yosemite Falls Overlook. I freak out after I take a step forward. A little hazy because my camera went from being in freezing cold water, to the warmth of the day. Still pretty cool.
I have missed you so. Tomorrow, our reunion will be glorious and sexy. I cannot wait. Love forever and ever, your Jersey girl, Lauren
(having a hard time posting pics here so I will do it separately) It’s Tuesday and we left Yosemite yesterday. Right now I’m sitting in a house in Davis, California, listening to records, drinking tea, talking about books, and being sick as a dog. The fact that I slept outside for 3 nights in a row (including last night. they have a tent in the backyard. it’s huge!) isn’t...
I'm really annoyed with travel right now
The stress right now is destroying the good feeling I had going on. I hope seeing Yosemite will make me forget! On my way
My last day on the National Geographic Sea Lion was Saturday August 13th. The night before I woke up and came into the dining room where a few co-workers were gathered. We played card games, drank (2 drinks) and just kicked it. It was really nice. Two friends, Garland and Brian, put a bunch of pictures and videos on a memory card for me. Some of the videos were people saying goodbye to me. It was...
Maybe it’s because we haven’t had a break in two weeks. Maybe it’s because my contract is almost up. Maybe I just need more sleep. Maybe no amount of sleep will be enough. Today, everything was funny. When I wasn’t laughing for any, every, and no reason, I was pounding coffee and trying to stay with whatever we were doing. I’m so thankful my deck partners are...
Today started simlair to most of my days these past few weeks. 1am seemed to come to soon after a long “night” of watching movies and hanging out. Its my own fault but I want to make the most of my last week! There were chores and chatting. the norm. But later I was told I could position a zodiac today. Basically, on Inian Island day (my favorite day of the trip) we go to several...
Today in Alaska
God, I cannot believe I have NOT kept up with this thing while I’ve been away. I’ll blame it on computer problems (but now I have a super duper cool Mac that can launch a space shuttle… but i cant figure out quite how to get around without a right click… still no excuse.) there isn’t a lot of downtime I don’t want to spend reading or sleeping (though here I am...
