past and present

it’s ironic that even though my life turned into one big nine-month weekend, it took going back to work for just a few days to truly appreciate “time off.” this weekend, christy was home on maui, and i got to spend my weekend hanging out with her, which was really nice. we visited surfing goat dairy with our moms, and the following day decided to visit the old maui high school in hamakuapoko.

with the economy dragging what’s left of my meager savings down the drain, i’ve started putting out resumes to the local temp agencies here in hopes of getting a job in a law firm until i move back to oahu in january. i’ve never tried seeking work through a temp agency before, but i must say it’s nice to have someone doing all the hard work for me! =)

so in the anticipation of *gasp!* heading back to join the working world sometime in the near future, dee and i decided to play tourist for a day in lahaina.
