Since I'm finished with school and "irregularly employed", I'm wanting to make the most of this downtime with a bit of DIY and general environmental improvement around the house.
I finally got around to seeing Rogue One over the weekend. Meego, Magnum, and I saw it on Saturday. Just when I thought I'd outgrown the whole Star Wars franchise, I really liked Rogue One. And [hopefully it's not much of a spoiler to mention...] the appearance of Princess Leia at the end felt all the more poignant since Carrie Fisher's recent passing. I honestly could've done without The Force Awakens.
I've been contemplating a little getaway. Remember when the family all left me here, home alone, while they traipsed around California? And all I got was this NASA t-shirt? (okay, I do appreciate the t-shirt. I pretend I'm Sally Ride...)
Anyway, I have a leftover airline ticket. It's not a whole lot of credit, but there it sits. And, what to do with it?
- Drag Meego off somewhere fun for his spring break?
- Drag Meego off somewhere less fun, but check out a prospective college or two?
- Drag myself somewhere fun?
- Get someone to come somewhere fun with me?
- Let the credit expire, and just eat it?
These are just some ideas I'm pondering. I've been checking airfares for places I/we would like to go and we'd be spending an appreciable amount in order to use my "free" miles.
At the same time, I'm already getting a bit sick of winter, and would love even a little escape.
I suppose I'll think of something. This isn't rocket science.
