As most of you know, I have been on vacation all week long. That is right folks, I have been off for the past ten days and I have loved every minute of it. I get four weeks of vacation, so this one was meant to be somewhat relaxing. Needless to say, it ended up being superawesome! Yeah, it's a word, I just made it up. You know what this means, right? Yep, I am going to chronicle my entire vacation.
I got done with work at 11 p.m. (I will be honest, I shut my brain off at work around 6:30) and headed home. I decided to head over to the Pub for a beer or two. I ended up leaving the Pub with some folks and heading to some place in Morrisdale where there was live music going on. It was actually pretty cool, the band was playing a good amount of Bob Dylan, which I enjoyed.
I went to my friend Jason's party to celebrate his birthday. I did not want to say birthday party because that makes him sound like he is eleven. I hung out for awhile, with all intentions of drinking heavily and spending the night, but then I got a killer headache and had to go home. Damn shame too, drinking is fun.
I ended up waking up pretty early on Sunday, mainly because I went to bed at like midnight. I got breakfast, read my book for awhile then came back to the apartment. I spent the majority of the day watching baseball and reading. It was a nice relaxing day, which helped prepare me for Monday...
I woke up and went to lunch with Kacie. It was a good time and after we took a walk. We ended up at the park, enjoying the swingsets. It was a fun afternoon and it led up to me leaving for Pittsburgh.
I drove down to Pittsburgh to stay with my friend Steve. We went out to Mugshots to partake in some trivia, like before. We got pretty drunk and we did not win at trivia this time. In fact, because of my stupidity we ended up losing. If I had listened to Denise, we would have won (I think). Instead I made the mistake of convincing everyone that my answer was right. Although, I did draw a pretty good map of the United Kingdom and Ireland to prove my point that the only country bordering the UK is Ireland.
After trivia we continued drinking and then Steve, Denise, Mikaela, and myself went back to Steve's to continue drinking. The following pictures were taken by Mikaela and illustrate how insanely drunk I must have been.
Sometimes I really wonder what goes through my brain during an intense drinking session.
I did not wake up until about three and decided to head on home.
By the time I got home, I had missed the first inning of Stephen Strasburg's debut against the Pirates.
I sat at home watching the game and amping myself up for Wednesday.
I already wrote about the entire day. Read all about it here.
I decided to just relax and sleep in for a good chunk of the day. I then went to my mom's house and picked up laundry detergent and came back to do some much needed laundry. After awhile though, I got kind of bored with it and decided to go out to the Pub.
The Pub was actually kind of busy for a weeknight. I got pretty drunk. No lies.
Adam, his girlfriend Lora, Lora's daughter Aubrey, and I went to a graduation party. Unfortunately, we were told the wrong date. So while in Spring Valley we stopped out at our grandparents house and spent the evening hanging out with them. The plan was to go home and get some sleep because I was going to Hershey Park with Adam and Lora.
Unfortunately, I could not sleep at all. I only got like two hours of sleep.
We got down to the park by ten and immediately started hitting up the coasters. We had a great day. Sadly though, it started to rain at like 6:30 and we ended up heading home. Needless to say the lack of sleep made my drive home a little difficult.
Once home, I watched the Pirates lose again and took a shower. Adam called me and we went out to the Pub. We played some darts and pool, drank some beers, then walked home. I then had a great phone conversation with a superawesome (there is that word again) girl. I did not get to sleep until after 5:30 a.m.
I slept almost all day. I then went up to mom's house and ate a burger. Then I came home and continued to just relax. I watched True Blood and Treme. I then went to bed.
Needless to say, it was a fantastic vacation. Now I must shave the beard and go to work. Look at that face? Can you see how sad I am.
