Ginger love from West Palm

I am spending my spring break across the country in Florida...a state which, up until this week, I have never been to. I feel like I am in a totally different world. The weather here is amazing, the ocean is beautiful, the people are great, and I don't think I ever want to leave. I am staying with my friend Anna Grace in her apartment with her 4 roommates, who have all so graciously let me invade their tiny space and set up camp for the week. I have been reluctantly trying to work on some of my homework during my free time...key word being reluctantly. I usually focus for about 5 minutes and then wander out to sit on the porch and stare at the water and the palm trees. Being from Arkansas, I'm sure I look like a total tourist...I like freak out when I see the ocean or palm trees or seashells and I bust out my camera like every 5 minutes...it's pretty hilarious but I'm trying to not be so weird about it, at least when people are watching me.  

When I got here on Friday evening, Anna Grace and several PBA friends drove up to a beach condo in Ponce Inlet to spend the weekend. It was amazing to say the least and I have some HILARIOUS memories and also a nasty sunburn as souveniers. I think I forgot that the sun hates me...

I don't want this week to end, not only because I love West Palm and all the people I have met here, but also because I DO NOT want to go back to school. I am only 2 months shy of graduation now and the senioritis is worse than ever! I am still undecided on what I am going to do post-graduation but I'm not really worried about it right now. I am just focused on getting through the rest of the semester...oh and I forgot to mention that..........(drumroll please)........I got a new car!!
Thank Heavens...the Buick was a faithful friend to me for the past few years but it was time for it to go. It was replaced by an '08 Nissan Sentra. I love my new car and when I drive it, I don't feel like it's really mine because it's so amazing.  But the best thing of all....it has AIR CONDITIONING! 

I now am going to carefully apply some aloe to my red shoulders, drift off to sleep and have sweet dreams in this paradise.
