My family and I have never done anything really fun for spring break. In fact, my kiddos were on spring break last week, and guess what we did--NOTHING. haha. We chilled at home, watching TV or movies, while I did some writing.
Even as a teen, I didn't do the traditional spring break adventures.
So why didn't I ever go buck-wild, darting down to Florida to shake my can at party central? Why didn't I ever go trekking across country, exploring states west of the Missippippi river? Why didn't I hop on a plane and head somewhere tropical for a week?
Well, partly because I was always broke. haha. Money can play a big factor in what you can do. But another part was that I just wasn't like that. Not that my friends would believe me now, but I was pretty reserved in school. I wasn't a party girl at all.
Do I miss not having wild adventures as a teen? Not so much. As a grownup, I can do all that and more, and it's perfectly legal. haha. Not only that, but I can plan the trip as I want it. I went to Hawaii all by myself a few years ago, and guess what I did--hardly anything! I lounged on the beach, went to happy hours at whim, and took scads of pictures. I napped when I was sleepy, did tourist things when it suited me, and ate whenever I was hungry.
Could I have done that if I'd had a group of friends or family with me? Hardly.
So, what's the lesson here? It's okay to be lame in school if you eventually try to be not lame as a grown-up. Okay, that's a dumb lesson.
The better lesson--wait until you can afford to go places as an adult, and then do whatever the crap you want. Yeah, that's better...LOL
Did you guys ever go anywhere cool for spring break? Share!!
