Going Home

This Saturday (the 19th) I'm packing up my things and making the long drive back home. I've been really sick and really stressed out since last week, so I'm beyond ready to go home and be able to see my guinea pigs and sleep!

I've kept my job at the kennel back home, so I'll work a few shifts over the break to earn a little extra money. The only downside is that, for Thanksgiving, we're all required to work but despite requesting the morning shift I was assigned the afternoon shift... And no one would switch with me. This normally wouldn't be something that I would get worked up about, but Thanksgiving this year is also my 20th birthday! My family typically does our festivities in the afternoon, and that's also when my friends typically come over for my birthday, so I was really pushing for having the morning shift so that the rest of my day could go on uninterrupted.

My family and friends have been really nice about trying to move things around because of my schedule, so I'm hoping that even though things won't go as planned everything will still be really fun and nice!

(I'm also using this post as a way to let you guys know that I will not be posting on Thanksgiving/My Birthday because I want to be able to have as much time with my friends and family as I can.)

This year's trip home is going to be different from last year's because I'm going to be driving myself! Last year I stayed up all night the night before cleaning and packing because I took a bus so I could sleep the entire way. This year there's no way I could stay up all night and then drive myself - driving drowsy is really dangerous!

I've reached out to a few people I know to see if they wanted to do the drive with me and pitch in for gas, but so far I haven't had any takers... For the most part people are flying back home. However, I'm kind of looking forward to being able to put on some podcasts and make the drive home at my own pace. (I'm not the most confident freeway driver so I think it'll be nice that I can pull over whenever I feel like I need a minutes to rejuvenate)

What are you guys doing for the Holiday/Break from school?

I'll see you on Tuesday!
