In addition to being breast cancer awareness month, October is also domestic violence awareness month. Both are serious issues which destroy families and ruin the lives of thousands of women. I find it so interesting that while breast cancer is a huge issue we should focus on we ignore the other when its cure is simply treating others with respect and doesn’t require teams of scientist to prevent. Just wishing I saw more people rocking purple.
One should always put bottles or containers of spillable things a sealed bag away from packed clothes.
Simple rule right? Well in my hast I just put my shampoo conditioner and lotion in the plastic zip compartment in my suitcase. This is the place to put toiletries so I thought sure one trip it will be ok. Ehhhhh wrong! Shampoo everywhere. Not so much on my clothes thank god but my suitcase linning zipper and toiletry compartment is cover as well as my brand new shoes.
So 4 towels and a sink full of bubbles later, its mostly cleaned and what a fing great way to start a long long trip.
This weekend I learned some vital things from hanging out with my friends. Some of them I learned and some I learned from watching the misfortune of my friends. Here is what I learned you should not do.
Disregard direct orders when people are blindfolded
Drink with out eating something first
Stay up till very late partying and then have to travel for work the following day
Let other people take your credit card to the bar to get drinks
Run into peoples lit cigarettes
Call navy sailors gay
Depend on other people to give you directions
Hopefully you can learn from my crazy weekend and save yourself some of the problems we had.
Today is day 3 of 7. Awesome. We have been to Illinois, Indiana, and now Michigan. We spent part of the afternoon at Lake Michigan. Nothing says your from out of town like being the only people at a beach in October in Michigan. It was a lot of fun however. And Lunch was on Randy.
Now Cammie and I are doing work and homework at Starbucks. Get this, its a stand alone Building with a drive through. Crazy right?
For all my avid readers… You may have noticed a sharp decline in the number of post I have put up lately. My life has been kinda crazy and indeed slightly difficult for me lately. All this will be explained in due time. But for now… I am sitting in an airport in Chicago about to start a weeks work of travel all around the great lakes states. Im starting this week exhausted and in pain, but tomorrow the fun starts and life returns to normal for LE.
