April 21 – Cali To Boston

Comments off 503 Views0


So my vacation is going very well thus far. I am a little pissed off that I got sick already, but it is what it is. I’m pretty sure I ended up getting a sinus infection or something of the like, which is taking me out daily. But I will start this from a few days back.

Saturday:
.
Got to the airport at about 7a. No problems getting through security, but I was a little shocked to see the airport extremely busy at that hour. Caught a quick 1hr plane ride over to Long Beach and waited for my connector. Turned out to be a small little airport with no wifi in it, so I took the time to write some more of my book. Pounded out the rest of the isolation chapter and cleaned up some more of the CB-ing section as well. Ended up buying a $16 sandwhich as well, which I only note for the insanity that is paying $16 for a cheap ass airport sandwhich. But a guy has to eat…
.
Got to SFO at about 3p and waited a lil bit for J4 to pick me up as he was running a little late. We ended up playing terminal-tag because SFO has like 3 different ground transport levels for some odd reason. Finally got picked up and went out to Golden Gate park to play some disc golf. Ended up doing pretty well considering that I haven’t played that course in like 2.5yrs. And that the course is muuuuuuuch harder than the very wide open course that we play in Vegas. O well. Did Gordon Biersch for dinner after that, picked up my uncle and cousin, then headed down to Monterey to sleep.

Sunday:
.
Ended up getting to sleep in a bit (which was a change of pace being that my little cousin loves to wake me up as early as possible to play video games). Got some donuts in the ol belly then played some Wii Resort (fun little game that has events like archery and basketball on it) with my cousin. We then all shot over to the middle school to play some more disc golf with J4’s friends. Very janky little course, but fun none the less. Even though my lil cousin got very upset with it being that he was by far the worst (but what do you expect when you are 9 and everyone else is 20+!?)

.
Got home, checked some emails for the first time on the trip, and then had some steak tips for dinner. Ended up passing out early because I was starting to feel a little shitty. Was pretty awful sleep I will say, mostly due to tossing and turning all night for no reason.
.
Monday:
.
We woke up pretty early and got over to the aquarium. Ended up meeting up with one of my uncle’s friends and her daughter Sam who were in town and doing the college interview process with some schools. Sam is looking at schools for something oceanic, so she seemed to be in 7th-heaven at the aquarium….as well as my little cousin who still loves them.

After that we drove down to Aptoss to relax at the resort for the night. Got some swimming in (although I mostly just bummed in the jacuzzi) and then prepped for night plans. Ended up going down to the beach and sparked a bonfire and just ate smores and drank all night. Good times for sure, although it was tough to stay up for it all due to feeling like hell still.

Tuesday:
.
Flew back to Boston most of the day. Got home and crashed out
.
Wednesday:
.
Woke up early yet again and went over the mechanics to drop off my dad’s car. Apparently he thought a fan had blown and was making noise, but it turns out the wheel bearings were so fucked up that his wheel could have fallen off at any time (and it had been this way for a week). Luckily it got fixed up though.
.
Spent some time with my mom and did lunch with her and her BF. Then grabbed my car, picked up my dad, and then visited my brother’s grave for a bit. We had some time to spare so we went over to the middle school and ended up tossing discs for a bit. There were no baskets there, so we just called out different targets and fired away at them. Was actually quite fun despite the wind, and he did alright for his first time out. Now I am just catching up on some emails and planning out my night. Hope all is well!
