Where did July go? I seem to have missed out on it entirely. This makes me rather sad as Summer is now on its way out. Obviously so: all kinds of Back-to-School merchandise is emerging from the woodwork. I tried to find a beach umbrella a few days ago and found they’d been almost entirely displaced by Number Two pencils and protractors. I found a sporting goods store that had a few floor models left, but I instead opted for a floppy straw hat for sun protection.
So far, I’ve only made it to the beach once this summer. I’m not much of a surfer, and the ocean is usually much too cold for casual frolicking, but sitting at the beach and listening to the surf crashing is a great way to decompress and clear the mind. Or it would have been if I’d have left my phone in my car as I should have. Instead, I ended up focusing on e-mails and tweeting instead of fully relaxing.
I guess that means it’s almost time for another vacation. I’d like nothing more than to go somewhere quiet and tranquil for a weekend. That’s apparently not exciting enough for certain interested parties, who crave adventure (but nothing too strenuous, mind you.) I’m sure there’s a happy medium to be found somewhere, but darned if I know where.
