Vacation All I Ever Wanted


Eileen Robinson

I’ve been on summer break for about two days now, and what a two days they have been.

I’ve watched a solid ten or so episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and read two young adult novels (guilty pleasures for the win). After finishing up such a challenging semester, I figured I deserve the break and haven’t even checked my email in two days, which is unheard of in college.

Gotta love '90s fashion

On Sunday, my mom and I are driving to Charleston, S.C. to really kick off summer break. My family and one of my best friends since 2nd grade Mackenzie live there so it’s almost a second home…one with a beach! As much as I love laying out in my backyard reading, nothing compares to sitting on the beach with family/friends and a good book for a whole day. I plan on getting as much beach time as possible during our first Charleston visit of the summer (hopefully there are more to come).

Mackenzie, me, and Ashleigh before a Jonas Brothers concert! No regrets

My jobs for the summer won’t start for at least a few weeks too so I’ll have time to work on my med school apps (like Erica) when I get back! I’m not actually sure if that deserves an exclamation point, but it is kind of exciting to be getting ready for that part of my life. Also a little terrifying…but mainly exciting. Either way, I’m riding my finals high for a few more days before re-entering the real world.

I'll be in that chair in a few days
