Finals are done - only three semesters (or so) to go! Let the boredom of summer ensue! And any ideas of what I can do to pass the time? Other than sitting in my room and watching movies on my totally cool TV?
Also, I've decided that I want to take a few trips over the next year or so, and would like some suggestions from the four people who read this blog.
Firstly, I'd like to go on a sort of mini-trip sometime this summer - preferably one that wouldn't cost more than two or three hundred dollars. My initial thought was to fly out to New York, catch a few Broadway shows (I do desperately want to get to "Sondheim on Sondheim"), and then go down to VA for a few days... But, unfortunately, that's sort of out of my price range at the moment. So any ideas for that? It'd probably best be somewhere I can go in my car, possibly with a few friends. Somewhere cool, and maybe somewhere I've never been before (not a new state or country though, obviously.)
Secondly, the recent, uh, list that has been passed around (you know the one of which I speak) has inspired me to, well... It's made me feel more competitive than I have in a while, and I've decided that next year I'm going to go somewhere I haven't been before, country-wise. What I'm saying is that I really need to drive up my number - there are certainly individuals I can't beat, but I need to drive up my ranking a little bit... Right?
So any ideas? Australia/Asia, etc. are too expensive, but I think there are other places that are relatively cheap. I'd only ask that the place not be entirely dangerous (half-dangerous is all right.)
These would, of course, only be a warm-up for the Ultra-Awesome-Mega-Ultimate-Fantabulastical Trip that I'll be taking after a few of my friends and I graduate (so it'll be a while, since at least one of them probably has a good three years left - enough time to save up for it.)
So, yeah, any and all suggestions are welcome! You could even suggest that I don't worry about stuff like this just now and focus on saving for school and the future and wait until I get a good career before I start planning epic trips - but, well, you know... I've gotta get more little black X's on the list!
