Mini vacay cruise

There she is, Ms. Ecstacy!

The dark waters of the Charleston harbor.

Awwwhh...the beautiful waters of the Caribbean sea!
   Vacations really should be banned. Yeah, it is great and euphoric while you're away from reality, but then it happens. You have to go back to the same reality you left. Usually, that reality is worse than you left it. It is more depressing to go back to the everyday repetitive life that we all have grown accustomed to. A vacation is a glimpse into the laid back life that we all crave. It is a small taste of living life how it should be lived. We all desire freedom from work and stress. I just got back from a 5-day cruise to the Bahamas and it is sad to come home. For me, the feeling is so bad it makes me want to cry. I want to leave so bad it hurts. I had no car to come back to (still working on that), I forgot about a load of laundry in the washer (yes it is very stinky), our ice maker had plastic stuck in it (our roommate claims I did it while I was gone-haha), me and my boyfriend are both sick, and I'm sunburnt! But I can say that it is still a wonderful life and I am ok with the life that I have made and what I deal with. I can complain and bitch about what I came back to after my cruise, but I'll admit, it's really not as bad as it could be. I am always open-minded and positive about everything, because why be negative and upset over things that cannot be changed or controlled. It sounds like an AA mantra! Back to my cruise... it was amazing! Five days of lounging around and drinking and being around friends are great. I really do think that I could do without drinking though. I do like drinking, but it really isn't something that I could do every day. There are a ton of people who can and do drink constantly, but not me. To each their own. Five days of drinking was exhausting for me. It was actually six days because a group of us going on the cruise partied the day before. Drink packages are the devil! Ha-ha! Fifteen drinks a day limit is what we had and I think I made it 3 nights to my limit. UUGGHHH!
  So here I am, having the travel blues. Not so much the cruise blues, but the getaway blues. The waters of the Caribbean are the most beautiful waters that I've seen so far. I know that there is so much more out there. I know there are crystal clear lakes, mountain streams, and waterfalls that are just waiting to be seen by my eyes. I'm so ecstatic to begin my journey that has actually already begun. Being on the cruise was a bunch of fun and I would do it again if I could afford to do it. They are pricey and I would rather spend my money on something better, like taking that money and buying my own boat and traveling the Caribbean area myself. The next goal made. Travel the United States first. Goals. Travel. See. Love. Enjoy life.
