I’ve been back from vacation since late night Tuesday. And it was a blast! I’m already anticipating my next cruise. The feeling of being on a ship and simply watching the water all around you — it’s tranquil. And then having the freedom to go and eat whenever you want to and not have to worry about pretty much anything… Amazing. I recommend a cruise to everyone. It’s like an apartment building on water. Everyone there was having a great time.

But onto the subject of this blog — the downside to vacations. What downside could there possibly be to a vacation? The coming back part. You know, the part where you unpacked and now you have to get back into the flow of your everyday life?


I’ve been procrastinating like no other. Basically only in the writing, reading, and critiquing aspect of my life. I haven’t been productive in my writing since I’ve returned (or technically since I boarded the cruise ship). I even delayed in blogging (as my blog schedule can show you). I went back to my full-time job yesterday (and I have today off, lol) and I had a great day. But I think the thing with writing is that you have to motivate yourself to get back into things. Whereas in a full-time job you’re forced to go back whether you’re ready or not.

Gotta get back into the groove of things.

In the mean time, here are a few photos of me in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
