Yup, I'm on Vacation

I couldn’t sleep last night. I tried sleeping on the side of the road, but it was too cold and too loud for me to sleep. I drove on some more until I noticed that I drifted onto the other lane unintentionally. I pulled over again and tried to sleep, but for about 30-45 minutes, I again couldn’t sleep. So I drove on some more, and I’m glad I did. I drove through Vegas at around 3 in the morning, and all the lights were bright and the city looked lively. It was my first time ever being in Vegas, and even though I drove straight through this time, I plan to come back and really visit this city at some point.

I’m writing this post on my phone because it’s been a busy day, and I’m not near my laptop. It’s 10:40 PM Pacific time, making it around 11:40 Montana time. I didn’t want to miss my Montana deadline, so I can’t wait to go home to write this. This entry might not make it to 500 words, but I’m on vacation, so I should relax a bit, right?

I’ve only had maybe 3 hours of sleep in the last 48 hours, so I’m tired. I just played a game of Cards Againsr Humanity for the first time with my cousin and brother, and I had loads of fun. For the previous 5-6 hours, I spent the day with my other cousin and brother shopping. I bought a new pair of shoes, and they’re awesome. We stopped by IKEA, and I examined all of my choices that I planned to buy while down here, and for the most part, I liked everything I chose except for the rug. I found something better and cheaper, and I’ll be super happy with it at my home.

I wrote 33 words in my novel before I crashed for a 2 hour nap. I haven’t been home since to add any more. I’m okay with that as long as I don’t skimp tomorrow. I ate a carne asada burrito, many cups of coffee, some chicken tamales and beans. Super Mexican, super tasty, super satisfying. Yup, I’m on vacation!
