Things that I’m doing in Maui with no car

All in all being stuck in my home on Maui is not a bad place to be.


  • Wrestling with a super-gross Jeep car cover, and anticipating, with every movement, that the insects that have created their hives within the folds will attack with a vengeance
  • Playing “wtf happened here?”
  • Writing and editing in the house
  • Getting tired of being cooped up, and putting together the mini version of the carbana and working there instead
  • Making the choice to walk down the street and watch the sun set over the ocean every night
  • Not making the choice, but waking up anyway around 4am and watching the sunrise every morning
  • Singing along to the entirety of Les Miserables in a “fuck yeah, I’m not in an apartment” volume
  • Grocery shopping and wondering how long a person can survive on celery and peanut butter.
  • Picking up dead bungie cords
  • Injuring my foot while diving away from the window so the surprise gardeners don’t see my boobs
  • Texting
  • Checking Instagram
  • Day dreaming
  • Repeat
  • Walking along the edge of the living room rug as if it’s a tightrope
  • No seriously, how long can a person live on celery and peanut butter?
  • Only pouring a little bit of white wine into this glass for right now
  • Binge watching Outlander
  • Looking up how much tickets to Scotland cost
  • Alternating between feeling lonely and feeling happy I’m alone
  • Wait, is my neighbor looking at me? Can they hear me singing?
  • Only pouring a little bit more wine into this glass
  • Pacing back and forth in the backyard calling for my favorite neighborhood cat
  • Picking up other dead bungie cords (this house is practically held up by bungie cords)
  • Taking my epic Maui walks — blasting Beyonce and strutting down the sidewalk like I’m walking a runway
  • Napping
  • Playing “is that my hair tickling my arm or was that a frightening island insect that should never exist outside of a horror movie?”
  • Texting
  • Checking Instagram
  • Day dreaming
  • Repeat

Wish you were here! 🙂

      My parents have Starz, I do not. This is where I get in ALL my sexy Jamie time, before heading back to a sexy Jaime-less Los Angeles. 😉

    Actually as a total introvert, that sounds like a pretty good vacation… Id probably add a few books in there, but overall not bad.

    And dang girl, you look hot!

      This is actually my first solo trip, and it’s weird. I’m a total extrovert, but I’m actually finding this quite enjoyable. Although I expect to go stir crazy in 5, 4, 3, 2…

    Um, if you end up going to Scotland, I’m crashing that trip. Also I fell in love with you from this picture. As if I already wasn’t in luh wih you.

      Oh, I’m GOING to Scotland. Correction: WE are GOING to Scotland. (and i might have sent that picture to a boy. Sssshhhhh.) 😉

    Tell me about “fuck yeah, I’m not in an apartment” volume. For me it’s more like “fuck yeah, my infinity number of roommates aren’t home” volume. Sounds like a wonderful introvert vacation.

    Also, celery with peanut butter will get you pretty far. Do not, however, try it with chocolate chips. I did as a protest against all those cookies that had raisins when I thought they had chocolate, and it did not work out. Other recommendation for tasty food combo that involves no cooking: slices of toast with goat cheese and a drizzle of honey.
