Aloha! Yesterday my parents, my sister, Dave, and I arrived in Maui!! I've been looking forward to this trip for a loooong time and am so excited to be here. It's going to be a nice post-graduation, pre-PhD program treat, and we plan to enjoy every minute of it. I'm going to read 2 books, attempt to surf, play 100+ games of boggle on Dave's smart phone, go to bed at 9:00 and wake up at 5:00 because I don't adjust well to time changes, build something in the sand, eat a pineapple, not worry about how the ocean makes my hair crazy, and do my best to stay sunburn free!
