spring break, but not SPRING BREAK!!!

I've been off from school since Wednesday, and being that it's my senior year of high school, this might be the specific Spring Break that I would go on a vacation to some warm locale and party and get drunk all night and tan on the beach all day. Obviously, I'm not. I don't like taking my shirt off in public anyway.

I'm not sure how it goes every year, but most of the people that I know who are going away, or have already gone away have chosen the Bahamas. It is a nice place. I've been there once, and I quite liked it. I believe I was in sixth grade. This is quite irelevant, though. I never even really considered returning this time as my classmates were so eager to do. I'm fairly certain that I would have been allowed to go by my parents had I wanted to, though.

Thinking about why I never wanted to go, I can come up with a few reasons. First of all, since then I've become terribly afraid of flying. I've only flown once since September 11th, so I'm not going to deny that there is a valid correlation there. I think I could be flexible to flying, though. After all, how am I going to get to Los Angeles when I want to try my luck in the TV biz?

Another reason is that I wasn't sure I would be able to find a group of people who had space in their room. There's nothing worse than being on the outside of a group of people who've already formed a group and begging to claw your way in, and I think I felt that there was no need for me to do that.

Third is the shirt thing. For real. I'm serious.

I'm not really sure what my point is for this entry. I suppose it's that I feel like I may be missing something. I'm in that whole end of high school rite of passage mode and I'm wondering if this is one rite of passage that I'm just not going to get to. Classifying it as a right of passage is probably wrong of me, considering the fact that 99% of teens never go on any sort of spring break trip, but for some reason, among the people that I've spoken to about it, it seems to be the norm. I also don't know if partying in beautiful weather with a bunch of people just looking to hook up is something that takes you to the next leven in life, but it is probably fun. Yeah, that's all I got.

This is a totally non-judgmental question, but why don't you like taking your shirt off?

For me, it's because of my acne. So I feel your pain. *hug*

Really just a weight issue. Nothing more. Sorry that you suffer from the same fear.

I've never done the spring break thing in high school or college. Sometimes I wish I did the college thing, but hey, we aren't all cogs and mindless and such ;)
