For September I was going to go to Flagstaff for a weekend of hiking, but that didn't happen. The last weekend rolled around and I hadn't gone anywhere so I jumped in the car after school and drove to San Diego to see my friends Rachel and Andy. The weekend involved lots of eating, sleeping, walking, and talking. It was actually quite perfect.
Arizona gives teachers the most wonderful gift every October - a full week for fall break! It's spectacular. I went with my roommate to her parent's house just outside of Austin, Texas. This vacation also included a lot of sleeping. We did spend some time at the University of Texas and checking out Austin, but my favorite part of the trip was sitting at the lake house next to the fire or on the balcony and relaxing during my time off.
