Remember when I talked about how I never do anything because I am overly responsible or just put off doing things that are totally out of my comfort zone?
Well, someone I know has never been that way. My friend Krystle is my hero in so many ways I could not even begin to do her justice right now.
She has always been a mega over-achiever. She does more than anyone would think humanly possible--spending time in India doing service, building houses *somewhere* over spring break, traveling to Hawaii to do Teach for America.
Nothing holds her back. She's one of the most motivated and adventurous and best persons that I know. She's truly a good person through and through.
She's an amazing friend. She's always been there for me. Krystle listens when I need someone to talk. She'll cry with me. She'll be funny and dumb if that's what we feel like at the time. There's this great sense of balance in our friendship that I don't feel with too many other people, but I rarely ever get to see her.
I don't know how to explain her amazingness even more than I already have.
Krystle's been asking me when I'm going to come visit her in my homeland, Hawaii (where I've never been). I kept putting it off, thinking I'd end up going someday... Maybe with my husband... Maybe when I have more money... Maybe when I have a job and don't need to be job hunting... Maybe...
Now is the time, folks! I have seized the day and booked a ticket to Hawaii for June 8 - June 21. Krystle will be housing me and showing me all the cool sites and sights. Being able to stay with her is a blessing since it will save me money, but it's even more of a blessing because I get to spend time with one of my most favorite people ever!
I have never ever been to Hawaii, and instead of waiting, I thought, "I'm graduating. I'll be getting money from that. I can put a little debt onto my credit card. I have no family or anything to tie me down right now. I'm going now!" So Expedia offered a great round trip deal of $540.
I don't think I can express my excitement for both Hawaii and for seeing Krystle!
