On a Write-cation (38)

Ahh, it’s good to be back.

Thanks to many, many essays for various college classes, I know when I’m about to hit the writing wall, so to speak.  I felt myself getting into too much of a routine, where writing became slightly obligatory, rather than fun.  Now that I’ve taken two days off, I feel much better — sometimes it only takes a short break to get back on track.

So, here’s a quick update about the last two days:

I realized on Friday that I actually look forward to attending work everyday, a surprising discovery that has really asked me to reconsider what I’m looking for in a career.

Yesterday, I went to the I Made It Market, which had an awesome array of handcrafted items, all quaintly set up in beautifully decorated booths.  I cherish these random summer events, especially because I can’t find anything quite like them at school.

Thanks for sticking with Daisy & Spruce through the write-cation!

Until tomorrow,



On Day Trips (4)

There’s something magical about a good day trip.  Most would probably argue that road trips are far more efficient, effective, and enjoyable (only one of which I find to typically matter on vacations: enjoyable), but there’s a special something in taking full advantage of one day of sunlight – 15 or 16 hours separating there and home – and seeing how far you can go before the sun disappears.  If there’s an outdoor adventure or two and a random food stop along the way, all the better. 

For now, I must pack, ever in search of that special sparkle of a day trip. 

Until tomorrow,
