However, there is something to look forward to: Spring Break.
And not just any spring break, spring break Maui.
Finally, I get the chance to show my friends what Hawai'i is really like. As most of you know last year we (Steph, Panda, Kevin, Myself) spent spring break on Oahu, in particular Waikiki. Now don't get me wrong, Waikiki was great, the bus system is awesome and you don't need a car, but the true Hawaii is not filled with high rise apartment buildings on an island with 75% of the total population of the state. Hawai'i is rural, quite, and slow moving. And with the rental car companies lowering the driving age to 21, going to Maui for 2006 became a possibility.
So, after convincing Stephanie, Panda, and Jason who has never been outside of California to go, the trip was born. And by adding Robert (not my brother, Panda's friend since sophomore year) to the list of travelers and finally booking a car, which was harder than I thought, we're ready to go.
March 11th is only 6 weeks away!
