July 4, 2016: Fourth of July

       It’s Fourth of July! I wake up and prepare for the jam-packed day ahead of me. Shower? Check. Dress? Check. Do hair? Check. I’m ready for the day. I walk to the nearest bus stop and wait for the Crosstown Shuttle. Once I get to State Street, I immediately look for my friends, Kim and Raphaela.  We begin strolling down the street and pop into shops that catch our eyes. We’re walking out of VAN’S when Kim yells, “OMG! Let’s go to Yogurtland!” Raphaela and I decide to tag along. I get a mix of cheesecake and strawberry.

Once we’ve finished, we walk over to the pier and take a couple of pictures every now and then to kill time as we wait for the annual fireworks show. All the while, joking around and telling stories. It’s around 3:30 PM and we still have a couple of hours to kill, so we all try to think of something to do. We decide to shop a little more and

As we’re strolling, we walk past a huge amount of street vendors, all with lines of at least five to ten people each, skateboarders, and tourists all moving along by the dozens. We walk past La Mesa Park, Shoreline Beach and end up on Cliff Drive. We finally get to her house and pop “Finding Nemo” into the DVD player and start making some popcorn while the ads are playing. After two hours has passed, we decide to mess around with my camera and take more pictures in her lounge. We end up needing two SD cards to hold all the pictures we take. It’s around 7:00 PM and we remember it’s almost time for the annual fireworks show! We begin to walk back towards the harbor and as we’re walking, it’s absolutely packed and extremely hectic with parents chasing after their kids, music playing, and others trying to find a comfortable spot to watch the show. We walk on over to Sandspit and find a comfortable spot to sit. Finally, we get to sit back, relax, and watch the show with some of the people I care about most.

  1. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll
    just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for beginner blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

  2. I visited various web pages but the audio
    feature for audio songs present at this website is genuinely wonderful.

    I needed to thank you for this very good read!! I certainly loved every little bit off it.
    I’ve got you saved as a favorite to check out new stuff you. I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, yet I never discovered
    any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is a lovely value sufficient for me. In my opinion,
    if all web owners and bloggers made excellent
    content as you probably did, the web might be a lot more useful than ever before.

  3. I’ll right away take hold of your RSS feed as I
    can not find your e-mail subscription link or newsletter service.

    Do you have any? Please let me recognize in order that I may just subscribe.

    Thanks. It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or advice. Maybe you could write next article referring to this article.
    I wish to read even more things about it!

  4. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout
    of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got
    to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it
    out better?
