My boss is going on vacation for two weeks (and kinda sorta not really leaving me in charge, because yes, I'll be in charge, but he's a control freak so anything he can possible do before he goes is being done. Like the rotation.), and I will have one day off this coming week (Thursday), and two as-yet-unspecified days off the following week (or so is the assumption, because someone has to come in from a different department to give me time off). I mention this because I've decided to do some daytrips, and I'm terribly excited.

I'm a bit torn on where to go, and I have to keep reminding myself that I'm here for a year, and most of these places have been around for a very long time, and aren't going anywhere. If I put off going to Saint Andrews till next month, it's not going to suddenly fall into the sea or be carried off by faeries.

One of the things that has really been throwing me in my life lately is the sheer amount of choices I have. I'm coming up on 30, and I feel like I have far more choices than I did when I graduated from high school. I tend to find myself paralyzed with too many options.

So, I'm not sure where I'm going to go, but I do know that I'm going. I've narrowed it down to either Stirling, St. Andrews, or Berwick-upon-Tweed to see Lindisfarne Abbey. Not that it really matters. What matters it that I can do any of them. *smile*

I'll be going to Paris later this month. I've already booked my three days off work for it. I am counting down the seconds, but trying to remind myself to live in the moment, and enjoy this place, right here.

{Wow, did that sound like it belonged in a greeting card. *grin*}

Faced with a choice of Lindisfarne Abbey or Stirling, I'd say go for the Falkirk Wheel. Kirkintilloch may be Scotland's canals Capital, but the Wheel is something else.

Go for the Abbey! It's mentioned in a web comic! :D I think it is at least...

*hug* Have fun! :)
