Okay, the things I listed in the title will not be in that order. But this is a blog of three parts.
PART ONE: Michigan!
I haven't been posting because I've been in Michigan and I've been tired. So, I'm going to tell you about our vacation now!
You know about the car shit. If you don't, refer to the previous post. So, our friends finally got us to their home and we went to bed. Sunday morning we woke up, had breakfast, and went to the beach at Lake Michigan. It was my first lake ever, and my first beach ever. Let me tell you, that water was FUCKING COLD! But beautiful. I loved it a lot. We stayed there for like 4 hours, had ice cream, went back to their house and watched True Blood, then went to bed. The next day, we got up and explored the city they live near, Traverse City. We went to a fancy mall that used to be an insane asylum, and it was AWESOME. All the stores were so expensive, but the building they were in was awesome. Then we drove up to a lighthouse and went to the little rock beach there. We got back home, watched Grimm, then went to bed. The last day of fun stuff, we got up and started to make our way to Mackinac Island (Pronounced mack-in-aw. Yes, I know there is a C at the end. Blame the French people). We took the scenic long route, and we got hungry. We stopped at the most amazing little place called the Good Hart General Store. If you ever can, stop there. They have delicious wraps and it's in a small town, so everyone is nice even if they have no idea who you are. Anyway, then we went into the "Tunnel of Trees" which was a beautiful road lined with trees. We got to Mackinaw City and got on our boat to the island. We found out that the Grand Hotel on the island was the hotel where they filmed the movie "Somewhere in Time" (which is a great movie...a science fiction-romance) so we HAD to go there, because it's one of my mom's very favorite movies. The hotel was so fucking fancy the bathroom had a legit ATTENDANT. But the hotel was beautiful, the grounds were beautiful, and it was just fun. We walked around the island and saw lots of fun little shops, then we went back on the boat and back home. The return trip will be covered in the next part.
PART TWO: A demon in Indiana
Okay, so, last time we went to see our friend, she lived in Indiana. On the way there, the front brakes just completely crapped out. We made it to their home, but then had to spend like 2 hours waiting in the car place the next day. The return trip was fine though. This time, we had all the trouble on the way there (IN INDIANA IS WHERE IT STARTED) that I have already covered. So, the car is finally at a transmission place and is being fixed, but it's still in Michigan. Because it won't be done at least this week. So, our friends were amazing because they let us borrow their van until our car is fixed, and when it is fixed we will figure out a way to get them traded again. We are at the moment assuming that we will meet half way in Chicago (yay!). So, on our way back home, we were about 15 minutes into FUCKING INDIANA where all of a sudden, all the electronics in the car shuts off. The GPS, windows, air conditioning, everything electric. We go on like that for a while, then we hit a truck stop and stop there for a minute to start calling people, when all of a sudden everything comes back on. So we went on our merry way.
WHAT DID WE DO TO INDIANA TO GET ALL THIS TROUBLE?! We have no idea!
PART THREE: Career Centers
I had my first class of career center today. All we did was sit there while the Officer talked. I'm hoping it will be at least slightly more interesting tomorrow.
So, there's the end of my post. The third part was short because 1) There wasn't really much to say and 2) my mother wants me to go to bed because I need to be up at 9 to get ready for my second day of career center. So yeah. Michigan is severely underrated, it's beautiful up there.
Song of the day: "You Belong with Me" by Taylor Swift. Because I've been thinking about how a certain person belongs with me (he really does)
Book of the day: "Thirteen Reasons Why" by Jay Asher. Why? Because I've been kindof depressed lately, okay? I'm fine, but sometimes I just feel sad.
See you Monday!.
