So, let's start at the beginning.
My school is going on a class trip down 5-6 to Minneapolis on the 27th of May, which also happens to my brother's 16th birthday. I have to get up at like 3 or 4 in the morning to catch the bus at school and then sit on my butt for 5 or 6 hours down to the city with a bunch of my classmates. I'll spend the day at an amusement park and I'll probably be back around midnight, I think. The next day, the 28th of May, is my last day of school. I will be extremely tired. Now, this is where the fun begins. On the 29th of May, a Friday. I will get on a plane in the Icebox's (My hometown) International Airport and fly down to Minneapolis and change a flight and go to San Francisco, California, by MYSELF! That's right, I'll fly down unaccompanied. I'm fourteen years old. I am really excited about that.
Anyways, I'll arrive in San Francisco at 11:20 AM and my grandparents will pick me up (I will be extremely tired by now! Plus there's a two hours time difference!) and we'll go down south
a little bit to my grandparents hometown and spend two months there! TWO MONTHS! My grandma has three weeks off so I'm spending time with her then, and for the rest of the time, who knows? Don't tell my grandfather this yet, but I'm going to try to get him to teach me how to drive. I'll be fifteen in November and will be able to get my permit then! I was going to get my mom to teach me this summer, but since I'll be gone . . . My grandma and I might also spend a day in San Francisco and go to a ton of bookstores in downtown and the big library there since we are both big readers! I also want to go to one of those multi-story B&N's because they seem really cool. I might get to spend time with my godmother and her new baby boy I haven't even seen yet! I think he's 2 years old now!
I'm going back the to the Icebox on Aug 2nd. Just enough time before school starts after Labor Day to get settled in.
Now, as you know, I'll be gone from my computer for two months, so you are probably wondering how I'm going to keep my blog going, well, I'm going to try my hardest. In the 75 days before I leave I'm going to have to work out everything. It's going to be hard, but I'll work through it. I might not be able to continue with In My Mailbox or "Waiting On" Wednesday, but I'll try to keep reviews going and everything. But I don't know how easy it will be.
The good thing though is that I will actually be by a bookstore! There is a Borders ten miles away! Finally! I haven't been in a bookstore since before I moved to the Icebox a year and a half ago. It's something I am extremely excited about. I think I will spend a whole day there.

The reason I really want to go out for so long is because this: I live in an isolated place. Where all there is to do is go to the movies in the five screen cinema in town, fishing, or well, nothing else. I live at least two hours from in big-ish town and because of gas, it has been since last May that I got out of this town. I really excited because I just want to go someplace, anyplace. I'm just excited to be leaving this town for a while. Having been in it for so long, I just want to go. You know what I mean?
I used to live in California before, my mom was born there, so I'm excited to go back. Plus I haven't seen my grandparents since my brother and I went out there for Christmas in 2006.
But, my question to you is, for those of my readers who live in the area, is there anything going on in San Francisco in that time period? Anything I could go do for fun? Let me know!
