I am leaving NJ on April 12th and won't be returning until the middle of July, when I will be moving into my new place. I will move my things into my parents furnished basement (It's huge), my bed into their spare room, and my car will be with the Dad. (all of his suggestions) Dad said he'll be driving my car a few days a week to keep it up and running. (I know she's an old girl but I just couldn't bare to part with Bridget...yes I named her. Why do you ask?)
When I lived in Ohio, Tana and I grew up across the street from one another. We met when we were just 12. On the first day we were in our house, Tana decided she wanted to be my best friend. Boldly walking over as we were unpacking, she rang the bell and asked my parents if I was 12 too, and would I like to play? Dad smiled and took her out into our new backyard where I was looking for trees to climb. He introduced us, and we've been friends ever since. Now, closer to our thirties then our twenties, we keep in touch often through Facebook and on the phone, but I haven't seen her since she got married. I know what will happen though, it's the same thing that always happens: We'll get together after not seeing each other in years and it'll be like we never left. We've attended weddings and graduations together. Here she is at mine and Brother's.
After spending a week with Tana, I'll be flying out to Hawaii on April 19th. The Orlando flight will take me to Phoenix, then I will board another plane to the big island (I think that's where it lands anyhow. I'm already a little confused.) then I will board ANOTHER plane from the big island to Honolulu. Even though I have to change planes quite a bit (long flight and all) my airfare for Orlando, the Hawaiian islands and back home cost me $971! That's it! I was so pleased with finding that deal that I was giddy. I love a good bargain. I saw most prices for $2,000.
I've got my camera ready (Finally. No more crappy cell phone pics) and I've got my video camera ready. A youtube account will be set up so I can also post vlogs for you all here. I want to share as much of Hawaii as possible with you guys.
I'll close for now. I'm currently battling a wicked cold at the moment and I can feel my eyes getting heavy. Bye everyone!
