Today is the first day of a brief summer staycation that I decided to take from my office. My original intent in taking these days off was to head to a North American Interfraternity Conference Foundation convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. However, it turns out that my presence at that convention was not needed so I opted to keep the time off and enjoy some rest and relaxation.
You know, when I take time off from work I have to use my vacation days. Yet, most of the times when I use those days I’m actually not “vacating” anything. In fact, most of the time I’m doing some type of volunteer work for the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation.
Now that I actually have a few days off, I’m thinking about heading to the beach. Believe it or not, for the last ten years I’ve lived a few minutes from the Atlantic Ocean on the beautiful Jersey Shore and yet I’ve probably been to the beach less than ten times in these ten years. It’s bizarre, really. In addition to the beach, I plan on going to the movies and seeing whatever’s big right now (maybe Toy Story 3 is still playing? What’s good?) and probably sitting out in the backyard of the townhouse and doing a little sunbathing.
Should be fun!
