Default Vacations

I'm enjoying one at the moment. Los Angeles has been quite busy lately, So our shifts rarely have a lonely moment. Every so often I find myself needing a few days off to blow off some steam and clear my head. Skydiving is greatly therapeutic for me but I just haven't had the time to get out there and jump again, So I've just spent my time taking care of things around my house and spending more time with my other half.

In the last few months I've seen just about everything....knocks on wood. My work schedule has changed from 3 12hr shifts and 4 off to 4 10hr shifts and 3 off.

What about you guys, Do you take Vacations often and if so, What do you usually do?

Haha, I'm going to Florida in 2 weeks. Spending a few days down there.

Gonna be in that nightly parade down there at Disney. Should be awesome! I forget what else we are doing, but we get a few days out of school for it.

I also have a plan: I'm gonna try to get 400 to 500 dollars, and what I don't spend in Florida, I will use to buy upgrades for my beast of a computer.
