I'd like to be able to tell you that the last few days have been eventful but, in reality, they haven't. They have been blissfully boring with relatively few phone calls or distractions. People have asked me why I don't necessarily do anything when I'm on vacation or why I have such long vacations. Firstly, I do do things on my vacations - I spend time visiting Orlando and Las Vegas, I go out to the country and visit with my parents and I have friends come and visit me from out of town.
The second question is often one that I have to lay out plainly for your average joe who does 9-5 monday through friday. I work seven days a week, there are no weekends, there are no days off and so when I do take my break it's nice to enjoy that time that I would normally have gotten in the form of a weekend.
On that note, it won't be long now (relatively speaking) until I'm back on the ship and working. Until then, I plan on enjoying the remainder of my time on land doing very little. How about them apples?
